Mastering engines for Music. A topic that always comes back to me. While I get a lot of questions about what the best mastering engine is I am going to explain everything about how my engine works. It is very simplistic yet very effective for what I do: Make stuff loud!
When it comes to mixing and mastering I prefer to focus more on the mix itself rather then having something "magical" in my mastering suite to make things better for me.
Mastering engines should be simple. They should not be complicated. If the master sounds off, then this usually means there is something wrong with the mix itself. So I fix the problem under the hood rather than trying to fix the master itself.
While I am using Reason 10 for this video it is a general topic which also applies to other daws such as ableton live, FL studio and so on.
