Mastering in Pro Tools (with stock plugins)

In this tutorial I describe how to master an audio track for CD replication in Pro Tools utilizing Pro Tools’ stock plugins. I also show a technique of PRINTING a stereo mix to an audio track in ProTools instead of Bouncing to Disk.

daaaamn! i was using maximus wrong way all the time:(
almost wrong?

cleared up a few of my questions cheers bud?

do you recommend using maximus to master sounds individually into the mixer channels or is it better in one wave file. I usually split my mixer tracks when exporting and mixing but Im not sure if you will get better results mastering all together or one sound at a time. thanks for these videos man. always picking up game from your tutorials?

When recording vocals on a track should you master with vocals or wait till the beat is mastered to add vocals??

Another generic faggot that pans the volume to the left/right.?

I know more now then I did 25:36 mins ago. Thanks very raw and helpful down to the point.?

Very short ans clear, just how it should be! And I'm super glad you made this step with soundgoodizer, as I found it very effective just in this order – play with maximus and then finish with soundgoodizer, but was always wondering why on few places saw people making fun of soundgoodizer – I can guess there are some guys just puting it on everything without mixing at all and mastering, so it was on them, but for me, seems like it really gives that final touch to the track. Great tutorial, tnx ;)?

Wow a store dude … Never m8!?

Awesome tutorial. Definitely helps with mastering some of my beats.?

Except for maximus what can be used to compress/mater a track??

Great Video bro, thanks for the advice !!!!!!!!!?

I don't understand why you're applying so much gain? I understand you want to leave some head room after mixing so the mastering engineer has a little to play with, maybe like 3-6 dB. but 10!? wouldn't that just raise the noise floor? And it's a little deceptive as louder music sounds better due to better hearing of all frequencies… You should use a reference level and A B between the two mixes at the same level.?

Thank you very much for the video. Greetings from Brazil! GOD bless you and yours!?

Hey Brian thanks for this… Very useful information. I've been using this for musicians who want to record but don't have the budget to get it mastered in a proper suite… And the proof is in the airplay. This method stands up against pro mastered tunes playing either side of the broadcast playlist… Thanks for sharing man!?

and thanks soo much this is soo useful?

where is the template for download???

if you're getting your print track out via the export option dither is automatically applied by pro tools as per the preference settings. no need for the plug in?

This video was a great help. Thank you for sharing.?

Hey Brian, great tutorial! I've learned a lot. I just haven't been able to figure out why when i route the Stereo Print output to the Final print Audio track, I don't get any sound? and there aren't any readings on the master channel (even though I have armed it). If you could help me out that would be great.?

Is it always better to put a bounced file in before mastering than to master on the same project file as your mix? Wouldn't importing a bounced file slightly degrade the quality??

How much $$ would you charge to master a track??

Entering Metadata is normally done in the Mastering Stage. From what I have read standard WAV does not support metadata unlike compressed audio formates like MP3 and the like. What I have noted with CDs quite often (new CDs) contains metadata information (my CD player reads this information). Also for the purpose of purchasing WAV files on line (ie…HD Tracks does not sell lossey audio) I would see a necessity to have important metadata embedded in this file format. What is the best solution for this (a professional standard)??

This is a great video, easy to understand and you explain everything really well. The song you made sounds great as well :)?

Brian, when I bounce the original track from the original mix at -10db for the template, do I take off maxim and comp plugins that are loaded in Master track?  Or just lower tracks to -10db, and keep the master plug ins (maxim, comp) on? Nice video. Educational definitely.?

Very nice video. The only thing I don't understand is how you set up each track. Like you have the master fader going into one thing then that going into the other. How do you set it up like that? Maybe you can make a video showing that set up process?

This video was extremely helpful thank you?

Very good indeed, simple but with a formidable practical implication . Congratulations on your work friend!?

@ Francisco Guerra: It is best to master at the highest resolution as possible, preferably at what you recorded at. Mastering is where all down-sampling (going from 48k and above down to 44.1) and dithering (going from 24-bit and above down to 16-bit) occurs. This is not to say you can't do this inside of your mix, but most mastering engineers like to work with the highest resolution file as possible. Also, I have my peaks at -10dB – this is accomplished by balancing my mix's levels track-by-track. I never really like to use a Limiter while I'm mixing, but that's not to say I won't if I feel it is necessary in certain cases. One reason I would use a Limiter in my mix would be to provide a client a mix with Mastering levels. In this scenario I would bypass the Limiter after I've bounced the file, as it is just to allow my client to hear the mix at a "commercial level".?
