In this short tutorial, I’ll show you how to master your track in less than a minute using MasteringBOX…and for free!
To start using MasteringBOX, simply drag and drop your track, or browse on your computer. For best results using MasteringBOX, we recommend reading the helpful Blog post on ‘How to prepare your track for Mastering’.
Once you reach to the preview page you will first listen to your original track, and then the mastered version, click on “original” and “mastered” to check the differences between them. If you like what you hear, sign up to the FREE account directly on the preview page, just enter your nickname, email, and password and hit enter.
Now you can send the track for mastering, but first, maybe you want to click on “Change Settings” to adjust Loudness or EQ. To adjust Loudness simply select the desired target Loudness and the system will automatically adjust compression and limiting settings to obtain it. This is, of course, an important feature for those wishing to achieve similar loudness levels in all the tracks destined for inclusion on the same album, for instance. Each style will require different loudness levels, bear in mind that raising the loudness too much will cause over-compression and unnatural sound. Click “Update Preview” to listen to the new version.
PRO Account and PRO Unlimited subscribers can also adjust EQ, via three knobs allowing for Low, Mid, and Hi gain control— superficially similar to a shelving EQ, though the central frequency and Q parameters of each band are, in fact, dynamically set by the mindful MasteringBOX system itself in accordance with the track’s spectral response.
Now that you have your master the way you like save the settings, choose the output format and send the master, FREE Accounts can only choose WEB OPTIMIZED output in MP3, if you want uncompressed WAV output you can upgrade to a PRO Account or a PRO unlimited account.
Done! Your master is now ready, just click here to download it. You can also download your previous masters on my account. If you like MasteringBOX, why not share it with your friends? They will sure appreciate it too!
