    Using Linear Phase EQ for Frequency Re-Balancing

    In this first video, we use Linear Phase EQ to roll off the high and low frequencies of the pop track and add in some extra warmth to balance the frequency spectrum.

    Advanced EQ Techniques with Linear Phase EQ

    Next, we use Logic's Match EQ to apply the frequency curve of a reference track onto our pre-master, and then use Linear Phase EQ to balance the Mid/Side bands of our track, as well as fix problems in the L/R balance.

    Tape & Vintage Eq Saturation

    Now we'll cover tape and harmonic saturation using Logic's Vintage EQ options which allows us to add fatness and richness, as well as musically round off harsh transients.

    Phat FX, Overdrive & Distortion

    In this video, we now use Logic's Phat FX, Overdrive and Distortion effects alongside some Linear Phase EQ to focus the saturation in certain areas of the frequency spectrum that need to be enhanced.

    Adding Groove & Front/Back Perspective

    Larry now uses Logic's amazing Compressor in clean and classic mode, plus musical release times to increase front back perspective and groove.

    Peak Limiting & Density Compression

    We'll now experiment with using very fast peak limiting compression and a smoothening density compression setting by tweaking our attack, release, threshold, and ratio parameters for amazing compression results.

    Parallel Compression/Saturation

    Larry now shows you how to apply compression in parallel to a loop to make up for deficiencies in the frequency spectrum. We do this by using dense compression combined with EQ and saturation.

  • image description 11:25

    Multiband Compression & Expansion

    In this video, Larry demonstrates how to use multiband compression with the Multipressor plug-in, and then expansion using the Expander plug-in. This allows us to really hone in on areas of the frequency spectrum and work on them in different ways.

    Imaging with Stereo Spread and Linear Phase

    Next, investigate using Stereo Spread, Linear Phase and a combination of Vintage EQ and Linear Phase to hype up the high frequencies of a slightly flat pre-master.

  • image description 7:22

    Limiting with Logic Pro

    In this video, we cover how to bring a track up to commercial levels using Logic's Adaptive Limiter.

  • image description 14:27

    Mastering the Pop Track "Soulbox - So Good"

    Watch Larry master the track from start to finish using EQ, tape saturation, compression, stereo spread and limiting.

  • image description 16:54

    Mastering “Get To Know - Sunshine ft Femi Santiago”

    Now see and hear Larry apply linear phase EQ, compression (in line and parallel) alongside stereo spread and limiting to bring the track up to the required volume.

  • image description 14:21

    Mastering “Stranded on a Planet - When You Think About Me”

    Larry now applies the techniques you have learnt throughout the video series to master the country track.

  • image description 13:03

    Mastering the Electronic Track "Lift Me Up"

    Wrapping up the video series, Larry shows you how to use the techniques you've learnt to complete a master on the electronic track.

Mastering with Logic Pro Explained® is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 4 .
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Larry strikes again Ask and ye shall receive :-) I completed Larry's Producing Electronic Music and Mixing Electronic Music courses several months ago and I suggested that the Mixing series could use a video on how to master the mix. What I wasn't expecting was to get an entire series on mastering in different genres. This is yet another excellent series from Larry. As with his other series, the process, in this case mastering, is made user-friendly. I think many people will be instinctively intimidated by mastering - even the word itself is a bit scary. Larry helps to take away the fear so that at-home Logic users will feel much more confident about DIY.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Some great tips. Larry gives some great tips on using the Logic Plugins. There were a couple of plugins I have rarely, or never, used and I found some cool things to try for completely different types of material. Always welcome ideas. I am a yearly subscriber to Groove3 for a number of reasons and this video proves its worth.
