Understand how it works
Mastering is a form of audio post-production to correct mix balance problems and enhance sound characteristics. Our Artificial Intelligence algorithm takes the input and reference track provided by the user and provides a fully mastered track with the same characteristics as the reference track.
Prepare your tracks before uploading them
- Make sure the input and reference files are of the highest possible quality, at a balanced volume, and not high-pitched ones
- Your input track should be complete. Never use cut tracks
- Avoid using data processing on the master bus (e.g. limiters, maximizers, equalizers, etc.)
- Avoid using mono tracks. To make the most of stereo widening, use stereo mixes
Choose the best reference track
- Give preference to files in WAV format. Uploading compressed files such as MP3 may work, but they will not reach their full potential
- For best results, choose a reference track with the same tone, genre, and style as your input track
- Also, choose a reference track with a similar instrument setup and comparable mix for optimal results
Optional and advanced features
- Limiter on: This is the default setting, so if you leave it selected, the result is ready with the iLUFS level at -14. To customize the volume level and bit depth, click "Preferences" and make the adjustments you want.
- Limiter off: Turn this feature off if you want to use your own limiting/compacting tools. Use this setting to have more control over the dynamics of your music. Result: the output will not include the Limiter.
⚠️ When using loud reference files, especially EDM (Electronic Dance Music), the final output may sound flat.
- Normalization: To set normalization, you will have to disable the Limiter. Unless you set 32 as the bit resolution, disabling it may result in clipped audio.
⚠️ Use the WAV output in your audio editor and DAW to finish mastering.
- Free and Premium users can master tracks up to 20 minutes in length per file.
