  • Tonal Balance 2 8:19

    Tonal Balance 2

    This utility is used to display spectrum metering information for the track it is monitoring, relative to an ideal target curve. Explore how this utility is used to resolve issues when your mix or master is lacking the low end power or high end shine found in commercial mixes.

Chapter 2 : The Modules

  • EQ 5:49


    Explore the basic EQ functions, including switching filter slopes and types, and working with mid and side modes separately.

  • Dynamics 9:52


    See how the dynamics section is used for up to four bands of analog modeled compression and limiting. Learn mode is put to work to intelligently set the crossover points based on an analysis of the music being mastered.

  • Vintage EQ 4:49

    Vintage EQ

    Hear how this lovely sounding Pultec EQ emulation is used to add focus and punch to the lows, mids, and highs.

  • Dynamic EQ 5:33

  • Match EQ 3:57

    Match EQ

    See how the Match EQ is used to capture the target EQ from one track, and the source EQ curve from the track you are working one. The differences between the two are then interpolated to create a new EQ curve, designed to match your source song with that of the target.

  • Vintage Compressor 7:03

    Vintage Compressor

    Hear how the three different modes in this compressor alter the signal dependent internal ballistics and change the overall sonic character of the compression. Mid side mode is used with unique detection curves and transient shaping on the mid and the sides channels.

  • Vintage Tape 5:31

    Vintage Tape

    Explore the ways this emulates the frequency response and saturation characteristics of tape machines, without the negative crosstalk, his, or wow and flutter associated with physical tape.

    Explore this module, which offers up to four bands of configurable distortion. Each band can have one of seven possible saturation types, with variable harmonic, distortion, and response characteristics.

  • Imager 6:56


    Discover how this module allows you to adjust the stereo width of your mix using multiband stereo imaging controls.

  • Spectral Shaper & Master Rebalance 8:10

    Spectral Shaper & Master Rebalance
