CDBbay Pro vs Songtrust

If you look at CDBaby Pro's offerings they will do all the publishing and performing society collections for $29.95 per track. However isn't it better to pay the one off fee with Songtrust and then go for the standard CDBbaby release, and Songtrust will do that work from then on with no other outlay...

Re: Using Oeksound Soothe on a mastered track and dithering

Hi Legit! Perhaps I'm a bit cynical about these 'clever' plug-ins, but in your situation I'd consider this the perfect chance to look at how Soothe altered your mastered track, and then think through how I could achieve the same results during the mix phase. That way there's a good chance that your...

Re: Using Oeksound Soothe on a mastered track and dithering

The 'Soothed' track was superior, really removed a level of harshness and sounded nicer and smoother to my ears. There's actually a preset called 'Before You Bounce' I just slapped that on. What's weird though is that the frequency display shows resonant frequencies reduced down by -6db at varying t...

Using Oeksound Soothe on a mastered track and dithering

I mixed a track and had it mastered and while it doesn't sound that great I noticed that if slapped Soothe on the master it does smoothe it out a bit and remove a bit of the harshness. If I were to render this new track would I have to re-apply any kind of dithering or can I just create a new WAV?

Re: Mixbuss processing or not prior to automated Mastering like LANDR

I've tried LANDR, and ARIA (Which uses a robot arm to tweak actual mastering hardware knobs, believe it or not) and CloudBounce. I can honestly say, none of them do a BAD job. They don't completely screw your mix, they make it commercially loud, and you can, depending on the company make genre spec...

Re: Audio Treatment - Walk-in Closet vocal booth

You'd be surprised how easy it is to get a good dry vocal with a minimum of fuss. Just start by putting foam sound tiles on one side and get a Reflexion Filter. Back to the wall, sing into the RF and see how that records. This would literally be a 15 minute job sticking the tiles up. The room I'm in...

Re: Mixbuss processing or not prior to automated Mastering like LANDR

Thanks! I'm mixing my own tracks so just want the convenience and cheapness of the online mastering, having read a few reviews they seem to do a decent job.

Re: who should i use to release my music on spotify etc

You should definitely have a solid read of 'Ari's Take', from that went for CD Baby and the track was on Spotify/ I-Tunes etc within a week (that said I paid for the 'Pro' $29.95 per track. The only other one I tried was OneRpm who wanted me to upload my photo and all sorts for security,plus their s...

Mixbuss processing or not prior to automated Mastering like LANDR

I was wondering if people would recommend Mixbuss processing before submitting a track to be mastered by these online automated mastering services like LANDR. For example I would normally boost the highs slightly, put an SSL Comp and some tape plugin on the mixbuss and mix into that, however would t...
