LANDR and AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System compared!

Landr1

LANDR Mastering – Is It Any Good? Are there other free mastering options? It’s been around for some time and is extending it’s services. I put it to the test.

You’re on a budget. A tight budget perhaps or even no budget at all. You’ve got a recording you want the world to know about and you need to have it mastered (yes, you do need mastering!). And you want it done good. LANDR is here to the rescue. Aren´t they? I’ve read many comments on Facebook and other online places stating LANDR is superb. Others think it’s the worst ever. So since they offer a free trial I decided I’d give them a try.

First of all, and that’s where most people make a big, a HUGE, mistake: you will need to have your tracks ready to be mastered before you get started with LANDR. If you upload your files with tons of compression on it, Limiter on the end bus and so on, they results will be bad. Very bad! You’re at risk getting a lot of clipping, distortion. Bad sound overall. At best it’s slightly louder.

I tested LANDR and it’s clear LANDR won’t do you much good if you’re not preparing the tracks correct! So don’t go wild with the mastering tools yourself, let them do the job. Don’t “master” your track, mix it, stick by the rules (see below) and send them to LANDR after that. It’s pretty useless to ‘master’ it yourself beforehand. It’s their job to do the mastering, right? They even suggested not to use compression on the tracks in the song itself. That doesn’t make sense to me, but I’m no expert in that field of course. So again, be prepared. Have your tracks prepared for mastering (trough LANDR). On their blog there’s a long story about how the tracks should be formatted but here’s the short version for you.
After you upload the files wait for the magic to happen. It might just work for you. Didn’t for me. In fact, imho they ruined my mixes. Yes, they made them LOUD. The kickdrum is especially loud and close to distorting (listen with good headphones to the track below). But they also made detail go and created a ‘boomy’ mastered file. It just didn’t sound good to my ears. Too loud and close to clipping all the time. Maybe because the Spectrum was not adjusted very much, LANDR does not do a lot of EQing that is needed. But oh well, it’s free right? Not so. You can only master two songs a month for free. And I really doubt if these songs are “radio ready”. Apart from that, a free master that makes your song not optimal sounding is even worse than a paid-for service that does a “decent” job. You can find them on sites like FIVERR. Click here. And the free songs (see below) are only available as MP3 files.

AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System

So I decided to search online for other options. I’m not a starving musicians but I love free. And to be in control as much as possible. I stumbled upon a software program called “AAMS - Auto Audio Mastering System”. It’s got a few “problems” you will need to know about but it is free. Totally free, no catch. And it does seem to do a very decent job. I used the same files I’ve used for LANDR to compare them side by side.

The Good..

It’s free. Totally free. When you master songs with it, you can select a “reference” style, it will output three versions of your song (16bit, 32bit, mp3 in 192Kbps). And it is very simple to use. Very straightforward. It also includes a document showing you what it did (results in Word-format). Interesting for those who want to know. Not for me, I’m not that technical. The 16bit version is fine if you want to use it to create CD’s or upload to BandCamp. The MP3’s are great for ReverbNation, SoundCloud and many others. Even if you’re not completely happy with the EQ settings you now have a set of tracks you can do some additional editing or post-production on. I like to do so using an old version of MAGIX Music Cleaning Lab (for example lowering the volume a little on all tracks). I lower the volume since I’m aware of the fact that some websites like SoundCloud will need this (-1.7dB is the preferred setting). And radio stations will add their own compression. So if your song is to ‘hot’ (too loud) it will sound pretty bad on some online services and radio stations. You don’t want that to happen! AAMS does a good job.

The Bad..

AAMS V3, the free version suggests you have a lot of options available by showing them on-screen. You don’t. It will only run one audio master file at a time (no batch mastering available) and this not bad for a free version. The AAMS Professional Version has all options opened for mastering. Oh, there is a manual, you could read that before you start using it of course (but I didn’t read it and AAMS was straight forward how to master a single audio file in 3 clicks). It will only run well if you run it as ‘admin’. Some consider this a security risk. I don’t, as long as you use the original program and don’t download it from another site. Download AAMS from www.curioza.com that is their original site for this audio mastering software. I’ve tested on Windows7. If you don’t run it as administrator on Windows, it most certainly will crash (I’ve tested). I started it as ‘admin’ user and had no issues at all using it to master 8 tracks (whole album).

How does AAMS V3 sound ?

Sounds really impressive! After testing a few reference settings I settled for the “alternative” reference setting for my music. Test a few settings on a few tracks to get the best results. And I must say, I found it impressive! I couldn’t have done it this way by myself in such a short time! I noticed it cuts a lot of the low-end, boosts the mids and doesn’t do a lot with the high-end. I think the tracks are much more “radio ready” now!

For the sake of the argument I also included one file, in my run of 8 tracks I mastered, that I didn’t prepare for mastering at all, i just put them into AAMS. LANDR won’t do you much good with an audio file like that. It will try to make it louder. They should have called it LOUDR instead of LANDR I’m afraid!

So how would AAMS do? It did (again) cut some low-end, didn’t make it louder (but mastering isn’t about making a track louder, that’s a common mistake I’d say!). To my surprise the volume was, in fact, cut back to the same level as the other tracks! That’s the advantage of using a reference (template) I guess. In fact all tracks were at the same sort levels! That is pretty well for Albums or to put audio on streaming services. This is perfect for me, since I wanted a consistent album, as far as the audio is concerned! It also widens the stereo image slightly (in my case) but this also depends on the reference i used. So in fact AAMS is better and more consistent!

AAMS Final Tests

So, I gave it the final test. Put the MP3’s on the USB stick and listened to the results in the car while driving to work. Again, it sounded pretty nice!! In my car it was very clear the low-end was cut. The car audio system isn’t top-notch (sorry, Hyundai, it isn’t) and was set to ‘flat’ on the EQ and there wasn’t much bass in the songs. So I turned up the bass a little. Most people turn up the bass a lot. Cutting back the bass does make sense. If people turn it up, use bass heavy headphones and stereo sets a loud bass would cause distortion and ‘rumble‘ . You don’t want that to happen!
After the car-check, I played it over my cheap HP laptop speakers (HP Multimedia Speakers GL313AA). These speakers aren’t very good. But professional audio mixes do sound more or less “good” on them or at least “decent”. And “Lo and Behold”! They sounded GREAT on these cheap speakers. This is the real world test you will need to do. Car Audio. Cheap speakers. Mobile phones. If it sounds good on that, you’ve got a winner (as far as mixing and mastering is concerned). For the first time ever my tracks sounded GOOD on these speakers! I was thrilled! The tracks mastered by the LANDR service did not. They were distorting. I think it’s the low-end. Must be. The low-end on LANDR tracks is too hot. AAMS was pretty straight and had a good sound on all my soundsystems or speakers!

How does this AAMS work?

 

The Verdict is in!

I’ve chosen to use AAMS. It’s much more flexible especially the AAMS Pro paid for version offers you lot’s of options (but test first with the free version if it works on your system!). The AAMS paid for version is pretty cheap too. I think I’ll buy it in the end. The AAMS mastered files sounds just fine! LANDR’s mp3 sounds ‘boomy’ and the low-end is distorting on my cheap speakers. That’s bad! On good headphones you will here the “lacking” of low-end on the AAMS track, but again, that’s fine imho. More important, I’ve chosen not to master myself this time for a (good) reason. If you use a software program like AAMS, or LANDR’s website, your end product, your mastering, will be (more) consistent. I think that’s the most important of all: a consistent, radio-ready, product. And on top of that, it saves you a ton of time and frustration.

You be the Judge

Anyway, don’t take my word for it. Listen and compare the tracks below (these tracks do not have the lowered volume I use in my final mix to make it a fair comparison). Perhaps you prefer LANDR over AAMS. Or neither of them.
You can listen to these tracks and even download them. Copy them, give them away. All tracks are, however, ©2017 by Rudy Brinkman/Barking Aunts. You cannot sell them or upload them especially not to make money out of it. And please do use the correct credits and refer people to www.barkingaunts.nl if you share the song.

Price Comparison

Even though LANDR charges you nothing for two tracks (MP3 format) this is not a good deal. You can’t upload, for example, MP3 files on iTunes, CDBaby or BandCamp. If you want more or better quality you’ll need to pay a monthly fee depending on your needs or wait for another month to get two more for free. The basic mastering will cost you $4.99/mo and you will get unlimited .MP3 flies. If you want WAVE-files additional charges apply. You can also pay per song (for example, I paid $1.99 for this one song since I ran out of the free ones). So that’s $48/year if you sign up for the service. For MP3-files. See https://www.landr.com/en/pricing for more details. With LANDR, for an album in WAV-format you’ll end up paying more than AAMS will cost (when you get the full version) and even the free version allows you unlimited mastering!

Yes, you read that well. AAMS charges you nothing for unlimited mastering. If you want the version with bells and whistles that allows you batch conversion, tweaking the settings and so on you’ll have to pay a one time fee of EUR 65.–. So, want to do some free, decent, mastering? Use AAMS and after the mastering you can do some final tweaking yourself to create a nicely mastered album. You can download it from there website at http://www.curioza.com/

Final thoughts (The Ugly...)?

If you have the money or wish to spend it let someone else do it. Hire a professional mastering service. They will get you the best results of course. For commercial releases I’d say that’s the best option. And of course you can (and some will) disagree with my personal opinion and taste and choose LANDR. Since in the end, it’s all a matter of taste. But if you’re looking for a free mastering option that will master your tracks in such a way that it does at least sound decent, download AAMS V3! And then when you are used to AAMS, but it.

Mastering Freeware: AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System for Windows Now Free!
May 8, 2013 / by Nils

Tomislav has pointed out in his freeware blog Bedroom Producers Blog that the AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System Software for Windows is now available for free download. The software from Denis van der Velde includes an equalizer, a compressor and a loudness maximizer, as well as a comprehensive analyzer function. AAMS analyzes the mastering of predefinable songs and adjusts the song to be mastered for frequency distribution and compression. AAMS is already supplied with sound samples from various genres. If you have tried AAMS, leave a comment with your opinion. While AAMS will certainly not replace a Mastering Engineer, anything that enhances the sound is welcome (and initial AAMS reviews are quite hopeful). If your virus scanner should sound the alarm while downloading AAMS, we recommend a visit to the Bedroom Producers blog and a look at the comment section. There it seems to have been clarified that alarms from virus scanners in this case are false alarms.

It works better than expected. I played with the demo version for about one month. 

The hardest part is that you have to choose an EQ curve from the included database that will be used to EQ match your song.
There is no easy way to do this. You have to use the trial-and-error method of choosing an EQ curve.
The one that worked best for me was named "Girl Group" or something like that. The final output from AAMS was -13dB RMS average volume. It had a nice punch from the compression and it didn't sound overly compressed or limited.
I wish I could turn off the EQ matching. This was the one thing that prevented me from purchasing the full version.
Try it if you feel adventurous.

I'm really liking what I'm hearing so far with AAMS. The depth of this program is very impressive. Every song I've run through it so far has sounded better and smoother after AAMS. I'm very close to purchasing.

I have gone to great lengths to self-master my various CDs out there in the void.  I have had AAMS for a number of years but never used it because I didn't understand how to use it ... because I never read the manual.  Duh. 
So, anyway, being bored, I read the manual couple times and watched the videos.  Listening to what it does against the various "references" it seemed that the "modern.aam" reference worked best for my stuff.  Choosing to use the 50 band EQ and 8 band compression, I fed it a few of my already "mastered" mixes and was very pleased.  Once I looked at what it had done to the EQ, I saw that I did have a bit too much low end in some of my tunes, etc.  Bottom line is that I agreed with what AAMS was showing me as deficiencies in my technique, and that the result sounded better than it did before processing.  So I'm kind of blown away I've had this and never gave it a try.
For example on my self-mastered song "Always Me", all of the EQ bands consisted of tweaks in the 1 - 2 dB +/- range which seemed to indicate that I had generally done a fairly good job, and that AAMS was not going EQ-bash*t.  However, it did choose a 3.7 boost at 56 Hz and a 4 dB cut at 103.  So I listened closely to the 2 versions, and I had to admit that the AAMS version had a cleaner sounding low end, and that the kick stood out tighter and more clear.  The compression across the 8 bands was a gentle 2:1 with 1 to 3 dB compress which is what you might expect from mastering.
I helped construct a million dollar studio (that immediately went bankrupt), and have been recording more years than I would care to admit.  I've treated my room to handle early reflections, and have bass traps in the rear corners.  I have sophisticated and costly plug-ins.  I've studied to make myself better at what I do.  Both me and my wife (who has perfectly flat 20 to 20,000 hearing) think that AAMS re-masters of my masters sound better than my masters.  Damn.

Pro for AAMS is that it helps identify the error in your EQ and suggests how to correct it.  It also (as stated above) does a seemingly good job on compression and loudness. Izotope allows more ways to effect the final master with stereo widening, exciter, etc.  I've used Izotope and I guess because I am not a professionally trained mastering engineer, nor have the facilities nor the room, I've screwed up any number of mixes by over applying this and that.

Mastering stage is a final stage in music production and can greatly influence overall impression and quality of a song. Since I am a beginner I still have a lot to learn in this area.

AAMSDenis

Hello, I am the Author of AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System
Some software and plugins i use for mainly Recording, Production, Mixing and Mastering.

 

Renoise

Renoise3

Renoise is build to be a DAW that does things very fast and very easy. And it is a bombshell with possibilities, full features like any other DAW. You might think we have to goto other DAWs to get things done. But this is the first software i turn to, too create music and is my start of every new track. It may look some kind of awfull to modern DAWs, but it shines in having all tools. Compose wise for listen drums samples and add samples, even an sample audio  editor is build in. It is easy to start a song with finding samples you like and add them, start a pattern of drums, set a drumloop and slice it. It all all possible and at hand straigh away. Composing is more easy because all is the same. It is all samples and play notes or insert them with the keyboard. It takes flawless midi timing from a midi keyboard and records it straight latency spot on. Husting around with patters and turn sounds on and off, make you find a song building contruction kit, that is easy and works like a charm form me. Special attention is for all who where into Audio Trackers like Fasttracker, you can still use the old modules and all is still working. From the old days and from what this software has become to, it is my favorite starting poing and with such easy workflow, sampling and editting. So the nr.1 for me. But, the sofware is great DAW, the support and getting onto the Renoise Forum is beating me to the ground. You can send emails for support, you get no answer. The software is not updated / website since 2016. So when you need good software this Renoise is great! But when you want support / updates and a good forum, look somewhere else and then dont get it. But the Renoise 3 version is so stable it does not crash and do weird things at all. That is why Renoise 3 is so workable and you can trow all kinds of sound in, the processor wont give a budge. So it is that good for creating tracks and create compose a song. For mixing you can do a lot in Renoise 3, but for an end mix it might be better to goto Cubase before you get it mastered and finished off. It is not an expensive buy and there a all kinds of plugins inside renoise and it loads VST plugins with ease. So it is a DAW but foremost a tracker. But i like the tracker system better then many other DAWs. As for of searching sounds and samples, adding them and edit them, renoise is a one solution! Pattern and Notes is simple and easy to work with, that i am way more accurate and faster then modern DAW systems, just because all is under the keyboard or your mouse. Renoise saves all data the whole song, mix, samples, all under one file. So that means clean directories and a tidy system. 

Renoise is a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) with a refreshing twist. It lets you record, compose, edit, process and render production-quality audio using a tracker-based approach. In a tracker, the music runs from top to bottom in an easily understood grid known as a pattern. Several patterns arranged in a certain order make up a song. Step-editing in a pattern grid lends itself well to a fast and immediate workflow. On top of this, Renoise features a wide range of modern features: dozens of built-in audio processors, alongside support for all commonly used virtual instrument and effect plug-in formats. And the software can be extended too: with scripting, you can use all of your MIDI or OSC controller to control it in exactly the way you want. Whether you're an audio veteran or just starting out, Renoise is a fantastic addition to any bedroom or professional studio.

Redux

RenoiseRedux

Redux is a great sampler that you can use with Renoise 3 or any DAW or VST host. The twist is that Redux is a sampler that can do a lot of things many modern music makers need. It is like an Arp Samples but that does not even cover it, it can do to sounds samples what you want, because just like in Renoise 3 it has got the same kind of track system like Renoise. It is a sampler within a sampler and it does wierd things and very workable sound malipulation. All within the beat so you never mis it. And good things are, manipulation and easy sounds. Just like Renoise you are up and running fast and will love this otherwise cheap sampler. If you have Renoise get Redux with it. If you need an affordable sampler that works well, get Redux. And you are into one key playing loops, many sound and patterns, it is mind boggling to play on a keyboard some notes or chords, it rocks the mind and breaks it trough. But when you want support / updates and a good forum, look somewhere else and then dont get it. Otherwise i do not think there is a pattern random samples that arps like this thing does!

Redux is a sample-based instrument, combined with a powerful phrase sequencer. Enjoy the full-featured MIDI implementation and performance-friendly features, for the first time available outside of Renoise. The sequencer in Redux is closely integrated with the instrument, and used to create musical phrases. These phrases are controlled via notes and program-change events, and allow you to alter the playback in a variety of ways.

Steinberg - Cubase 10

Cubase951

Youtube Channel Playlist of Cubase

Cubase 10 is the Digital Audio Workstation for me. As like now days there are many of them available for Windows and Mac. Like Fruityloops, Pro-Tools, Reason, etc. I started out with using a tracker like FastTracker that is a more pattern based music and sampling system that runs under DOS. But Cubase was always my first choice. And still is. The main reason is, it works great with midi and audio (sampling and streaming). As in FastTracker with musical samples and patterns, midi and audio are well taken care of with Cubase. So in combination with Halion and Groove Agent it is my main production house. Be sure to have TrackSpacer pluging below. Including Wavelab as a more audio editing tool for samples. Also Kontakt and Battery are great for use as Samplers. I tend to do things in midi with samplers playing the audio instruments and not recording the track with audio. I only record Vocals as audio. So everything stays editable, adjustable and midi note wise can change anything at any time. But that is more of my own choice, because soundcard ASIO latency is always on the ride. So processor speed is needed for this kind of my own midi with sampling productions and mixes! And Cubase does best on a mordern computer, you can run project with many effects without any probs. As far for a mordern DAW Cubase does the job very very well. Though it can be a hassle to learn it all, becuase it is packed with tools and options and editting posibillities. Sometimes i just step to Renoise for good simple steady compositions, but Cubase is still the one to edit all and mix all. It is a one stop go machine, but takes sometimes the easyness out of your hands and make you pull your hair out when things go wrong or you have to read the manual to see how it exactly works. Also to really have a backup of your song mix track, Cubase does not save all data to one file. Instead it saves the song mix track, but presets, vstplugins, samples are loaded from their original location. The directory you save your song in is a good place to have all samples and vstpresets in. Else afther a few years and a new computersystem, your track might not load exactly as it did. Therefore Renoise is a good option that saves in one single file. Cubase does not and that can be messy filesystem in your directory and in future you might not load a track into Cubase that is an exact copy of before.

With millions of musicians, producers and sound engineers around the world using Cubase every day, Cubase is one of the most popular digital audio workstations of our time. Due to its pristine sound quality, intuitive handling and unrivaled range of advanced tools, Cubase is not only considered by many users as the most complete DAW on the market today, but also sets the benchmark for contemporary music production software. Covering all stages of the creative process from composing, recording, editing and mixing, Cubase excels with intelligent tools and features that put creativity first. Offering maximum flexibility, Cubase does not impose a certain workflow onto you, but provides the freedom you need to push your creative envelope. Every musician is different, and every project is unique. Leveraging off our decades of experience in providing solutions for creatives of all stripes, we listen carefully to the needs and requests of our users and innovate features that inspire and generate real-life value. Free customer support, regular maintenance updates and an open, constant flow of communication with our customers are the firm pillars that uphold the strong relationship with our customer base.

Steinberg - Halion

SteinbergHalion6

Steinberg Halion on Youtube

Halion is the one and only real instrument that i use, because i like to sample everything. Everything mean i use VSTi Instruments as synths and all kinds, but i sample then into Halion. The way you can adust per sample volume and panning is keeping it all good for stereo. And just checking and positioning samples recorded from the VSTi Instruments, Halion is great to adjust the sound with it is still in its main stage. Also with sampling like Halion and Groove Agent, samples are greaty manipulated by using Wavelab as an editor. Batch processing of Samples from one Sampled Instrument is a good way to get rid of plugins you would otherwise in your DAW and take up processor speed or latency. Sampling is the way to go for me and Halion is the main insert for use. Halion is far more then just a sampler, its a sampler on steriods.

Halion is the most comprehensive virtual sampling and sound design system available today and excels the present creative process for producers and sound designers in all areas.It covers the complete creative workflow from recording and sample editing to programming advanced synthesis and modulation setups. With Halion, create customized user interfaces and export ready-to-release instrument libraries with every step streamlined to the greatest extent. The powerful set of oscillators for seamless sample playback as well as the next-generation synthesis make Halion a versatile creative tool in simply every situation. Its broad library includes thousands of high-class and deep-sampled instruments and cutting-edge synthesizer sounds for all kinds of musical genres.

Steinberg - Groove Agent 5

SteinbergGrooveAganet

Steiberg Groove Agent on Youtube

As for having a sampler as a Drummer or Drumkit, Groove Agent has it all. It is for sampling and manipulation of drums really effective by playing patterns with midi notes. Or just playing midi notes and hear drum samples directly. The drumsets by installation give a good view what this drum monster can do. For me i like to sample everything as well as drums. But Grooving with this tool is so enjoyable and gets clear and effective realistic sounding drums, just by rithmicly playing on your keyboard or midi controller. The one to go drummer for me.

Steinberg’s easy-to-use yet powerful drum studio is the ultimate source for any kind of drum production style. Look beyond your standard workflows and get creative by combining electronic beats with warm acoustic drums to produce your individual sound. Groove Agent 4 redefines “virtual drummer” instruments by allowing you to combine up to four of the included drum Agents — each a specialist in their own field — with each other, opening up completely new ways of creating drum and rhythm tracks. Each Agent draws on a massive new sound library created especially for this version, with over 22,000 samples and more than 3,800 grooves that cover almost any contemporary music genre. All included patterns and grooves can be altered on the fly using the integrated Pattern Editor for even more creative options. Easy to use yet functionally deep and featuring many innovative approaches, Groove Agent 4 has been designed to excel in a number of roles, such as the studio, on stage, in the rehearsal room or as a creative inspiration for music production at home or on the road. Launch the stand-alone version of Groove Agent 4 in Jam mode to assist you during song-writing sessions, for example, when your drummer is not around. Groove Agent also supports all the most common e-drum hardware, allowing you to play the included kits on your setup. Groove Agent 4 has been engineered to harmonize completely with Cubase to keep your workflow smooth and your creativity flowing. Drag and drop samples and MIDI patterns from Cubase onto Groove Agent 4 or drag patterns from the Groove Agent 4 pads into your project to build a Cubase arrangement in seconds. But the integration goes even further: drum maps are automatically created for you from your Groove Agent kits, and all pad names are copied to Cubase, meaning less hassle and more creative freedom.

Mackie - Universal Control Pro

MackieControlPRO

The one to go for DAW Controller for me, it works, it does not die or break and you can be a mixer engineer and adjust your mix in a DAW with a controller like this beast. Well it is only because Mackie make good products and this a winner when it came out and still is the one mixing console that feels good and is really creative for mixing! Yes, in the old days where in the Studio you must have been there gobbling about that many faders and knobs and how do they manage that ? Well at home the Mackie Controller can be big and cumbsy, it still represents a mixing console and controlling EQ or plugins (even the faders and panning directly) is hands on the best. Why not doing with a mouse and keyboard ? Because you can do thins quiker better and more FUN and be more creative! Modern DAW software has given us virtually unlimited possibilities for manipulating audio, but sacrifices the organic feel of faders and knobs at our fingertips. Reclaim that experience without losing the power of software with the expandable MCU Pro control surface. With simple USB plug-and-play setup with nearly any DAW, you will be mixing like a pro with real motorized touch-sensitive faders, buttons and assignable V-pots in no time.

Nugen - Monofilter

NuGenMonofilter1

Top notch filtering bass frequencies to mono. Basically i use this plugin on the Master channel on a complete mix. Setting mono to 128 Hz and Higher to 512Hz. This will bring all bass over two speakers in exact mono. Bring transparent solidity to your bass. Sharpen, define and align for the tightest mix using Monofilter in every track. With presets for every situation and controls for fine tuning to perfection, Monofilter anchors your bass with ease.

Bringing definition to weak/hollow/flat bass, Re-centering LF after stereo FX, Correcting phase issues, Sampling/restoring old masters, Taking care for vinyl, Psychoacoustic 'Panning' bass, Making a frequency split,Stereo spectrum analysis. Trusted by producers the world over, Monofilter grabs hold of your bass and roots it solidly within your mix. With its intuitive controls you can quickly anchor the power, while retaining the essential character and perceived spatial characteristics of the original sound. Monofilter defines the centre of your bass, so easily lost through stereo effects processing, synth sound generation, unwanted phase inconsistencies and live recording mic. bleed. Market-leading features give you really accurate control over stereo spread, transition and phase alignment, with precise visual feedback in a tactile interface that lets you grab the applied stereo envelope and manipulate it directly – without using abstract parameters and knobs. 

A solid foundation, when solid or natural sounding bass is a requirement in your recording projects, Monofilter provides the foundation for real power and definition. The non-directional nature of low frequencies can often contribute to a perceived lack of clarity and focus in the mix. Adding stereo FX processing and using multiple mic. set-ups in the studio can introduce phase inconsistencies leading to ‘weak’, ‘hollow’ or ‘flat’ sounds. Monofilter lets you align and balance low frequencies with the minimum of effort, leaving you with the same sound, yet louder, more focussed and better defined. And with Monofilter you can be sure of great playback performance on systems with separate low-frequency handling, such as club PAs, live rigs, home cinema systems, HiFi, and 2.1 gaming systems.

WavesFactory - TrackSpacer

WavesFactoryTrackspacer

Just as Monofilter, this is a must have plugin!!! If you have not used this plugin before, if you did not side chain a compressor before, you be asking why your mixes sound so bad and you cant separete the mix more ? TrackSpacer is the answer! Ducking the Basedrum in front of the bass or putting the Vocals upfront. A compressor does not the same as TrackSpacer does, TrackSpacer removes a amount of EQ that is used by the source input. If you want to have a clear Basedrum, is just a first start. You can duck anything with anything. In version 2.5 seems easyer to work with Cubase. Anyway, If you want a good Basedrum just duck all other tracks or even a mix track bus. So you clear all other sound while the Basedrum is playing! And it is a good idea to have a Short Basedrum as can bee (so set envelope as short as can be or cut the sample, as it will duck all other signals by it. Just place TrackSpacer on any track you have but the basedrum, and give the basedrum as input, set reduction at 23 % or higher. Many applications arise with this plugins that can cancel out the EQ or cutout the EQ of other tracks so that your main materials, like Bassdrum, Vocals or anything will stick out and be earable by ducking the others with TrackSpacer. Also some kind of rythmic ducking at the same time is happening when used on other things like while vocals sound, you can duck the guiters and that piano. By reducing the EQ of the sound by the basedrum sound (for instance) it does not matter if you change volume on the tracks. With ducking in compression the threshold is important and any vome changes on the track reduces or even cancels you ducking by the compressor. That is why TrackSpacer is not only better by reducing EQ on that tracks, also when you adjust the track volume, pan or effects, it does not matter, and there is no need to adjust TrackSpacer as you would with a crompessor. Fiddling with a compressor ducking all the time is useless time, TrackSpacer is better and takes no time from you, setup and go! Then second the plugin is easy to setup and just to put on a Channel and improve your mix in just about 30 seconds. Then afther that it is only some occasional adjusting. This simple EQ ducking solutions works great for anyone mixing and having problems, because now with TrackSpacer it just became too easy! Something that was very hard to do and took so much time, TrackSpacer is the plugin to have!

The Trackspacer plug-in features a 32 band EQ that reacts to the incoming sidechain signal. It analyses the spectrum of the sidechain and applies a reversed EQ curve to another track. As if by magic, Trackspacer creates space for the primary track by cutting the exact frequencies on other tracks. No more fighting for space for the vocal in a mix, or any other instrument for that matter. If you have a solo that needs to room to breathe then Trackspacer makes the task easy – complicated automation moves on your mix are a thing of the past!

Trackspacer is an award-nominated plug-in that creates space in a mix by carving the frequencies that the main track needs into another track in real time. Trackspacer is no ordinary plug-in, it is similar to a sidechain compressor plug-in but much more powerful and transparent. It’s considered a secret mixing weapon by many artists, producers, and engineers. TapeOp said “I would call this a secret-weapon plug-in, but the word is hereby out! TrackSpacer is a ridiculously affordable, easy way to get various elements of your mix to interact in useful and musical ways.

 

Oeksound Soothe

Soothe

Second after Trackspacer, Soothe is also one not to miss. When you can't handle your mix or a sound EQ wise, Soothy is a solution. A Solution that handles EQ like multiband compression. Work wonders because all the nasty harsh frequencies can be now polished or taken out. You mix will sound better, it is ment for Vocals and does the job very well. Soothe is a new kind of dynamic EQ processor and works great on like samples and offline processing. Vocals, Cymbals, Harsh Sounds on the overall. It takes about 100ms of latency compensation is less usefull inside a mix many times. So used on sounds or audio that can have a treatment of taking out unwanted frequencies that pop out and though the whole mix or vocals. It is very usefull to get the harsh sound out of samples and audio, and if you do not like EQ to be so fiddling, use soothy for the job of removing those tiny spikes of EQ. It is way faster to use Soothy and start with a moderate mix level inside soothy find the frequency range and remove as much as you need. We call this the ringnoises that pop out of the frequency range and are mostly unwanted sounds for human hearing. Remove with Soothy and make something recorded harsh, suddenly smooth. Still one of a kind plugin or at least very very usefull to get the harshness and EQ artifacts out of your sound.

Soothe is a dynamic resonance suppressor for mid and high frequencies. Originally designed as vocal processor, the plugin aims to give you "the perfect, in control, world class vocal sound you've been striving for, with unmatched ease". Soothe is a dynamic equaliser with self-adjusting frequency bands. Unlike traditional EQ-tools, soothe analyses the signal on the fly and adjusts the frequency-wise reduction based on the input. This saves you from having to manually notch the problematic mid and high frequencies. The reduction kicks in when needed and where needed, without affecting the nearby frequency areas. This results in more detail, top end, and presence.

Fixing Mix Probelems : A vocalist with problematic sibilance recorded with a saturating microphone. Fingerboard noises on acoustic guitar and double bass tracks. Excessive whistling from the cymbal close mics. Overly bright electric guitar and piano tracks. The graphical user interface allows you to target just the areas you want, with control over the frequency range and sensitivity of the process. The frequency graph shows exactly which frequencies are being processed. Tweak the material for round results that sit well in the mix, or go overboard and find new innovative sounds. The delta toggle presents you with the difference signal, letting you hear and see just what is being removed. This allows you to fine-tune the parameters with confidence. Designing a spectral process with minimum amount of artefacts. Soothe is free from pre-ring, crossovers, and summing artefacts commonly found in dynamic eqs and multi-band compressors. The process sounds as natural as you like, with the option to add even more resolution and oversampling. If your CPU can handle it.

Kazrog True Iron

KazrogTrueIron

Most users will think of warmth by adding tube warmth to their tracks. That is one way to add discrete harmonics. Other will revert to tape simulation plugins for that tape effect and hitting the volumes that tape likes. But there are mostly Transformers that raised the bar for Synths, Microphones, Vintage Compressors and all kinds of high end audio equipment. Kazrog True Iron add what we call indiscrete harmonics. And when raised, it will give a subtle warmth and when driven in dB gives harder and more open sound. This emulation by Kazrog will open your eyes on what it does by using inside your mix on the master or any track, samples, etc. For breaking out the vocals, synths or even the whole mix. Useful and very kind on CPU usage. This is about the only good emulation of discrete transformers and with very subtle or very hard settings, you can add, what you could not do before.

The sound of transformers. Add warmth and heft to your tracks and masters, made by Shane McFee in conjunction with Devin Powers. It accurately emulates 6 classic line transformers, known for their use in many of the biggest names in vintage analog outboard sound processing. Models are based on UTC 108 X, Malotki E4M 4001B, Western Electric 111C, Haufe V178, Marinair LO1166A and the UTC O-12. Take a look behind the scenes at some of the transformers that inspired the plugin. These transformers add weight, heft, and girth to your mixes and masters. The plugin features adjustable strength, input impedance, wet/dry ratio, and a special Crush control to add fat transformer saturation to tracks and buses. The CPU usage of the plugin is low enough that you can add it to every track or bus in a mix for added virtual analog warmth across your entire mix. True Iron was developed to capture the true essence of the subtle warmth of outboard line input transformers. A secret weapon of pro audio engineers in a wide range of styles and applications. True Iron emulates a single component circuit, purpose built with fidelity in mind, while still imparting analog character.

Steinberg - Frequency

SteinbergFrequency

The best EQ for all stereo material. The option to have a -94dB cutoff filters on Low and High is very useable to just add that sound and reject lows or higs out of the mix, making it less blurry and cluttering. The LowCut of -94dB is great for Bassdrum or Base cuts at around 25hz, or any other Instrument or Vocals etc to take away the bottom End of a sound, like setting the cutoff Low above 120hz to 512hz depending on the needs of the sound. Basically scan with the LowCutout filter of -94dB all what is blurring the mix and that is why the -94dB cutfilter of this plugin is so important. Same with the Hoghfilter but used lesser, you can take out Highs from Bass and Bassdrum and keep what you need on the rest of the sounds. Also the Analyzer is Ok in very, with under the Keyboard to find out notes. The only thing this EQ can do is manage the sound of the channel. But really Frequency is the 1st EQ i use for a track. Even i setup any audio channel or instrument channel with a Frequency Plugin just to do all the Channel EQ. So the only thing i use first in the Channel.

Frequency is a high-quality equalizer with 8 fully parametric bands. The bands can act as either shelving filter, as peak or notch filter (band-pass), or as cut filter (low-pass/high-pass). You can choose between the EQ types Low Shelf, Peak, High Shelf, and Notch. For band 1 and 8, you can also select the types Cut 6, Cut 12, Cut 24, Cut 48, and Cut 96. Low Shelf boosts or attenuates frequencies below the cutoff frequency by the specified amount. Peak boosts or attenuates frequencies at the set frequency value with a bell shaped filter. High Shelf boosts or attenuates frequencies above the cutoff frequency by the specified amount. Notch boosts or attenuates frequencies at the set frequency value with a very narrow filter. Cut attenuates frequencies below (band 1) or above (band 8) the set frequency. You can choose between different slopes: 6 dB, 12 dB, 24 dB, 48 dB, or 96 dB per octave.

Sound Radix - Surfer EQ

 SoundRadixSurferEQ2

Surfer EQ is great for all monophonic or mono channels, as long as the pitch of the sound can be tracked with this good EQ for adding some umph and timbre (harmonics) and adjust EQ to about mono notes to follow. Basically if you track EQ the lowest note of a Bassline, the Surfing function follows that lowest note as the track plays. The notes in mono that follow are all EQ'd the same. So it is a tracking EQ for mono material. What it does is what was needed and other EQ's (until now) could not do. That is having a second EQ option that works on just the tonal settings of mono sound. So it is great for Basslines and Vocals, also on mono synth material. Just monophonic sounds, but hey to mess with harmonics of the sound on every note that SurferEQ2 follows, you can make a Baseline steady on all notes played. So it is EQ follows notes and does Compression or even Gates the signals. So many options. But to enhance or change you sound to what you whant, instead of messing with the sound source, just setup SurferEQ2 on all mono material and you will find out, you can adjust the sound in another EQ style way.

Timbre Shaper, SurferEQ 2 is a ground-breaking pitch-tracking equalizer plug-in that tracks a monophonic instrument or vocal and moves the selected bands with the music. Synthesizer filters can track the pitch to maintain the timbre of the sound throughout the instrument's voices. However, sound equalizers have always been static. While being effective for broad tone-shaping and room resonance correction, standard EQs do a poor job at maintaining the vocal or instrument's timbre as the music changes. Tracks the pitch of a monophonic instrument or a vocal source and can adapt its bands' frequencies relative to the music in real-time, maintaining the natural harmonic balance of the sound source and making it possible to shape the source's timbre relative to the notes being played.

Meldaproduction - MSpectralDynamics

MeldaproductionSpectralDynamics 

Essentially a dynamics processor which works in the spectral domain allowing you to work with individual frequencies. The compressor can make loud frequencies quieter for example - but that's just a beginning. With MSpectralDynamics you can expect nothing less than pristine audio quality!

Standard tasks, such as flattening the spectrum or removing noise, are available from the main screen with simple controls. Quick and easy, unless you want to dive deeper and make use of all the controls. The plugin can do anything with each frequency. It can be a compressor, expander, gate, or any combination, and you can even draw your own processing shape for more creative effects. Add in integrated parallel compression, full channel linking, up to 8 channel surround processing and much more and you might just become a hopeless addict. The unbelievable level follower that you may know from MDynamics is here too! Automatic release modes, peak hold, RMS length, look-ahead, custom attack and release shapes and much more. Preventing collisions between tracks is just one example of what you can do by analyzing a different track from the one that you are actually processing. Unleash your creativity!

Audiothing - Vinylstrip

AudiothingVynilstrip

For enhancing the sound right afther you placed some EQ, followed with Vinylstrip there is quite a few Channel Strips around on the market. But Vinylstrip has some mind of its own and just sounds good. The distortion, Comperros and Tilt EQ are good to get some sound breaking forwards. Reverb, the Bit mixer even Gain and Mix, make it very handy to have as a second improvement tool on samples or channel tracks. It is gettting you sound more outward and in front and crispy as you like, not to over due it. Also the Vinyl part as adding dirt and clicks is very wierd to destroy your sound with it, but it works to have some grain dirt added to an otherwise clean sound.

Vinyl Strip is a cracking plugin, ideal for treating individual channels and processing whole loops/groups. It does exactly what it sets out to, with the added bonus of offering five versatile mixing tools, so even if you're not looking to bring the sound of classic wax to your productions, it's highly recommended. A multi-effect plugin featuring 6 modules: Distortion, Compressor, Bit Crusher, Tilt EQ, Vintage Reverb, and Vinylizer. The modules can be arranged in any combination by simple drag-n-drop. Vinyl Strip will add life and an old school touch to your samples and tracks, and achieve that classic vinyl record sound in your digital environment. The plugin is optimized to be lightweight on the CPU.

Audiothing - Outerspace

AudiothingOuterspace

Just because the original Roland Space Echo is used on may Reggae and Dub records, it is just about the ultimate vintage reverb around to get something started. Unlike other Reverbs this has Delay and more and consist of a sliding tape accross tape heads, very adjustable and syncs good. And to get that other wierd stuff just fiddle around with the knobs or use the random button.

Outer Space is a faithful emulation plugin of a famous vintage tape echo made in the early seventies. As the original unit, Outer Space features a tape echo section with three playback heads and a spring reverb tank. We have modelled three different tape frequency responses and saturations, along with all the analog imperfections of tape recording/playback. We’ve also modelled the ballistic response of the delay rate (repeat rate) which can create eerie pitch shifts (due to the Doppler effect), one of the classic tape echo-based sound effects.

Gtune Tuner

GTune64

For adjusting there is one forgotten thing, that is tuning. You music needs to be in Tune. Guitarists tune their instrument before playing. And with VSTi Instruments around, you might think you sound is tuned allready ? Wrong. In some cases yes, some NO. You should check and correct false tuning. That is why i use Sampling with Halion. And it works so well if all is tuned and you mixes improves greatly if all is tuned correctly.

GTune is a chromatic instrument tuner which operates much like similar hardware units. It will automatically detect the pitch of a note being played, and display the closest corresponding Western scale note. You then change the pitch of your instrument, using the "LED"-like indicators and the numerical read-out in order to bring your instrument quickly and accurately into tune.

VB Audio - Voicemeter

VBAudioVoicemeter

Are you recording Youtube Video's or do you have a blog on the net ? Do you have a problem that the microphone is not working (not recording or no audio ?) or have problems when you start another audio application on Windows while recording the ScreenVideo ? Ever had problems wanting te record your voice with Video or running a DAW at the same time ? Yes, i managed once to get a voiceover microphone working while recording a video and then running audio software that blocks the soundcard. Even with a microphone working, there can be lagg and latency even stutter comming from the computer or soundcars. This plugin vor Windows soundsystem (so usefull for everyone) and has the routing you need, like routing a microphone from a soundcard to the systems record channel or output, so you can here it while explaining (recording a video) and have a program like Cubase use the same soundcard. Voicemeeter is Audio Mixer Application endowed with Virtual Audio Device used as Virtual I/O to mix and manage any audio sources from or to any audio devices or applications. So it works and does the job well.

Brainworx BX_Subsynth

BXsubsynth

The savior is here! When need of sub material like on Basedrum, Base or other instrumets Voices, the BX_Subsynth from Brainworx is like the holy grail. It creates from the incomming signal a 2nd and 3rd lower sub synthesis frequencies and a upper part. Basically when you dont have a Base that has the power, you can add it now and make you music much stronger (it has the options to overdue it). And there is also the Monomaker, that makes frequencies Mono below a cerain setup frequency. Pricy but essential for most amateurs that don't know how to fix or create LOW frequencies and a must have for anyone mixing or mastering music.

bx_subsynth is the Holy Grail for bass fanatics. Integrating a mix of classic and modern processing, this 10-ton beast gives music tracks, cinematic special FX and DJs’ sound systems a bottom end that goes all the way to the Earth’s core! Bass EQ can’t do what bx_subsynth does. The discrete frequencies bx_subsynth generates leave more space across the bass-frequency band for other instruments, letting you jack up subsynth’s bass without muddying your mix. Plus, EQs can’t boost bass in a thin track that doesn’t have any bottom to begin with. bx_subsynth doesn’t just boost—it adds new bottom! And whereas psychoacoustic bass processors trick your brain into hearing phantom subharmonics that don’t actually exist—and which you can’t feel—bx_subsynth adds real sub-bass that will shake your body like an earthquake!

Redux

RenoiseRedux

Redux is a great sampler that you can use with Renoise of any DAW or VST host. The twist and good things are, manipulation and easy sounds. Just like Renoise you are up and running fast and will love this otherwise cheap sampler. If you have Renoise get Redux with it. If you need an affordable sampler that works well, get Redux. But when you want support / updates and a good forum, look somewhere else and then dont get it.

Redux is a sample-based instrument, combined with a powerful phrase sequencer. Enjoy the full-featured MIDI implementation and performance-friendly features, for the first time available outside of Renoise. The sequencer in Redux is closely integrated with the instrument, and used to create musical phrases.

Native Instruments - Traktor Pro DJ

NativeInstrumentsTraktor 

Just because i am not a DJ but creating music with a DAW, i was allways interested in DJ software and many of us like to be a DJ. For wannabees and home recorders (and offcourse the real DJ), the Traktor software is making a DJ of you and anyone! So many DJ software out there. Traktor is just great Dj software that can also be controlled by a DJ controller or Midi Controllers.

Vestax - VCL100 DJ Controller

VestaxDJcontroller

A good mention is having a DJ controller for DJ software. The Vestax VCL100 i have for many years now is so robust and with the touch wheels very creative controls for any DAW or DJ software. Not to mention Native Instruments own controllers and the sound mangler Machine Software with a controller. All good fun and creative in the same time, DJ your own tracks or parts like Bass, Drums or any audio, you can manipulate in realtime and creat funny effects that you never come accross. A real DJ set or Software Controlled DJ ? Wel software like Traktor is not expensive like having a Pioneer set in hardware. And a DJ Controller or Midi Controller should be not that hard to find and pay for. So home users can now be real DJ's. And with a Laptop running the software you can even do real DJ sets and get payed for. Eh ?

Native Instruments - Traktor S4 MK2 Controller

NativeInstrumentsTraktorS4MK2

I allways loved the Traktor software.

Mixed in Key

MixedInKey1

If you are a DJ or becoming a DJ, you need tracks that sound alike and within about the same Musical Key. Mixed in Key is a software program that scans you music collection and sets Musical Key values in the ID tag or within the software you use. Like Traktor DJ (Native Instruments) Mixed in Key generates more info on all tracks. The easy way to find music that kind of matches to each other is a great help for all DJ's struggling with what to play next and not to fuck'up a DJ set while playing live. Great tool at a good price. The softwate comes with some flaws, if the audio file read is bad the software will crash or get stuck.

Platinum Notes

PlatinumNotes1

A side by side companion is Platinum Notes and Mixed in Key. Platinum Notes is a one drop fix for audio files alike MP3 that will level each track towards a prefered setting -12.5dB or as set by the user. Second it can correct pitch of the track. The feature to add warmth i have disabled. It takes your music collection and levels it to the desired level set. Corrects all peaks and clips, it can also retune or repitch the track. All in one single pass and some waiting time. Your music collection is set at a good level for listening, especially for DJ's this is very good thing. One thing, the program does have some flaws. The first one when an original MP3 or file was not written correctly beforehand, PN can crash or present an Error. Well this means something is wrong with the original file. Out of 1300 files i first put in, 100 files where bad. So it is kind of easy to pick them out, when crashed see what files are written or not written, so you can see the files that are bad. The error files reported by PN are mostly without any header on the MP3. Long files like DJ mixes can crash the software also, try to avoid them. Not saying PN is buggy, it will get stuck or crash only on files that where bad in the first place. So it will sort out the files that are (where bad beforehand) and now you can do something about them. Also the version PN4 seems a bit old and not updated.

Drop in your music files. Platinum Notes will make them sound perfect. Platinum Notes uses studio filters to process your files. It corrects pitch, improves volume and makes every file ready to play anywhere - from your iTunes to a festival sound system. We designed it to work with music from Beatport, iTunes and other stores. Even if you buy WAV files, Platinum Notes will improve them. Created by the developers behind Mixed In Key. It is currently used by the world's best DJs. Add Warmth to your music for a beautiful analog sound. Visualize the results of Platinum Notes processing at a glance. Save files to MP3, WAV, AIFF, Apple Lossless, or FLAC.

MP3val - MP3val-frontend

MP3val 

A free software tool to validate and fix MPEG audio files. When you want to scan you MP3 collection for errors, the MP3val tool is great for that. It fixes most MP3 errors and at least show you MP3’s that are good and MP3’s that are bad in you collection. It is an older MP3 utility, but it is still recommended!

MP3val is a small high-speed free software tool for checking MPEG audio files integrity. It can be useful for finding corrupted files like incompletely downloaded, truncated, containing garbage. MP3val is also able to fix most of the problems. Being a multiplatform application, MP3val can be run both under Windows and under Linux or BSD. The most common MPEG audio file type is MPEG 1 Layer III mp3, but MP3val supports also other MPEG versions and layers. The tool is also aware of the most common types of tags (ID3v1, ID3v2, APEv2). The core component of MP3val is an application with command-line interface. There are also two graphical frontends for it. MP3val-frontend is a native Windows application.

MP3 Gain

 MP3gain

This is a very handy MP3 tool that gains all you MP3 collection towards a normal volume setting. Basiclally i use a setting of 93,8 dB standard is 89 db. While 89 dB is too soft, 93,8 dB seems quit OK. It scans all MP3 files and suggests a gain value that is been written into the TAG of the MP3, most players use the TAG info and use the advised Gain. So you MP3 collections plays without differences in volume or loudness.

Tired of reaching for your volume knob every time your mp3 player changes to a new song? MP3Gain analyzes and adjusts mp3 files so that they have the same volume. MP3Gain does not just do peak normalization, as many normalizers do. Instead, it does some statistical analysis to determine how loud the file actually sounds to the human ear. Also, the changes MP3Gain makes are completely lossless. There is no quality lost in the change because the program adjusts the mp3 file directly, without decoding and re-encoding.

If the mix is at least acceptable, the results are amazing!

User Review 162

I use AAMS, and it's been a huge help!
I rarely match another EQ curve exactly, but it certainly points me in the right direction.
1. When I've got things sounding pretty good in the overall mix and I'm not sure why it's not quite right, I run an EQ analysis and compare it to a commercial mix
2. As a safety feature to make sure I don't have too much bass because of my less than ideal mixing space
3. On individual tracks - if my vocal or guitar isn't quite cutting it, I'll do an EQ analysis against an isolated commercial vox or gtr, and make adjustments accordingly.

Obviously, I don't just make these adjustments without listening. The usefulness of this tool is that it gives you a starting point, so if I notice that my vocal has several db less 3K but several db more 5K, I'll start messing around with those frequencies until it sounds better in context of my mix. You have to look at it like a pro engineer taking a listen and saying, "Hmmm - sounds like there may be a bit too much 5K, and not enough 3K."

There has been a lot negative said about this type of program, but I couldn't disagree more.

AAMS has been one of the single biggest contributors to the improvement of my knowledge and the sound of my mixes!

Was busy with a 45 Minutes mix for a couple of days, and in between I found AAMS V3 on the net. I read that AAMS V3 could do 1 hour of mastering and especially ok for DJ work. Was intrigued and I just bought the registration update right away. There are even DJ References in the AAMS Database, so I used one on my mix. Though I try to push the music normally to the max, that is not ok, but we do that as a DJ. Loudness with a DJ is just the Volume Fader! AAMS V3 made my eyes go open about mastering even my DJ Mixes, it is worthwhile to do so, this software opened a new world is was interested in, but never had time. AAMS V3 is easy mastering and fixed a lot of problems straight out of the box.

AAMS V3 will become a tool of value now in my setup, and I think I will learn more than before.
Thanks Denis for creating this AAMS software!

Our own masters were sometimes worse and sometimes better than the AAMS stuff. The guy who mastered for free did the best job, but only after his third attempt. All in all, I thought the AAMS might make a decent learning tool because you could change all of the settings yourself. That way you could look at what the AAMS was going to do, and preview it, and then change the settings of the EQ, compression, stereo width and so on. It was interesting to hear the effects of changes I made myself.

I have gone to great lengths to self-master my various CDs out there in the void.  I have had AAMS for a number of years but never used it because I didn't understand how to use it ... because I never read the manual.  Duh. 
 
So, anyway, being bored, I read the manual couple times and watched the videos.  Listening to what it does against the various "references" it seemed that the "modern.aam" reference worked best for my stuff.  Choosing to use the 50 band EQ and 8 band compression, I fed it a few of my already "mastered" mixes and was very pleased.  Once I looked at what it had done to the EQ, I saw that I did have a bit too much low end in some of my tunes, etc.  Bottom line is that I agreed with what AAMS was showing me as deficiencies in my technique, and that the result sounded better than it did before processing.  So I'm kinda blown away I've had this and never gave it a try.
 
For example on my self-mastered song "Always Me", all of the EQ bands consisted of tweaks in the 1 - 2 db +/- range which seemed to indicate that I had generally done a fairly good job, and that AAMS was not going EQ-batsh*t.  However, it did choose a 3.7 boost at 56 Hz and a 4 db cut at 103.  So I listened closely to the 2 versions, and I had to admit that the AAMS version had a cleaner sounding low end, and that the kick stood out tighter and more clear.  The compression across the 8 bands was a gentle 2:1 with 1 to 3 db compress which is what you might expect from mastering.
 
I helped construct a million dollar studio (that immediately went bankrupt), and have been recording more years than I would care to admit.  I've treated my room to handle early reflections, and have bass traps in the rear corners.  I have sophisticated and costly plug-ins.  I've studied to make myself better at what I do.  Both me and my wife (who has perfectly flat 20 to 20,000 hearing) think that AAMS re-masters of my masters sound better than my masters.  Damn.

My band struggled for years (decades) with demo tapes and demo CD.
Now streaming music and internet is the main thing.
Still we did not and never got our Live Sound to transfer good to our fans.
Offcourse we have tried and used different studios and mastering engineers and sites.
Until i read the Basic Mixing resources on www.curioza.com.
Ok it takes some more time and understanding, i must say we did only put in the money, we did not care.
I quess we did not understand and i reversed the plans to allways have other outside people do this.
Now we mix and master at home! Computers are up to par nowdays, soundcards and systems are so good and cheap.
Software does the main thing, AAMS is now our main resource for analitics and sound correction.
From start to finish, we do now in our own studio (one single room).

Thanks for the software!

The ONLY difference between a “star” and anybody else is the size of their audience.
The bar has been raised significantly, people pay to hear exceptional music.
The bar on quality has been raised, everything has been done before.
Musician(s) nowadays are not the same as decades ago.

AAMS is software that is aligned with this and do it yourself.
For everything else Musically AAMS is doing everything you need.
It even may consider to make your homestudio even smaller with lesser hardware.
Tidying the costs even more, still having the bar high.

Yeah, Denis send me my track back and came with a nice sound.
I asked how he did this and he told me his website, www.curioza.com.
And the fact he did nothing but use his program AAMS.
I did not understand the software at all, sure it is over the top.
But now i feel comfortable and happy!
I use AAMS for to learn my mix and adjust it while i am busy.
And for the end track.

Let me say up front that I am not a mastering engineer.
I am a composer and sound developer.
I try every tool I have and tweak it to find new sounds.
Finalizing everything form tiny samples that last a tenth of a second to my own epic pieces.
I have learned a few things, Human Ears are good (hopefully), but get fatigue.
Computers and software do not. Not the fact that i rely on my hearing, i do use software like AAMS to control and the analyzers / charts to view what is happening.
My eyes and ears i use now!
To me this gives me a greater and better understanding of mixing and mastering.
And i do jobs faster and do not get so tired!

AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System - Mastering Tool.

Never underestimate how important it is to get your mix as sonically correct!
Know what sort of overall sound you are trying to achieve before you start mastering.
After all, if you don’t know where you’re headed you are quite simply never going to get there!
The mastering process cannot make a rough and nasty mix sound great.
It can, however, add that certain sparkle and impact to an already great track.

AAMS works but it only improves on what you put it. Fair enough, but if it ONLY IMPROVES than why do they give you so many different preset / impulse thingies. If none of them have the ability to make a mix worse, I question their ability to make a mix better. Does that make sense?

Brandon Drury

User Review 38

I downloaded this to see what all the excitement is about. For the record, my knowledge of mastering is limited, but I do know that you should get your recording to sound as good as possible before sending it out to an ME. So far, I'm most intrigued by the spectrum analyzer.  I've always felt that my recordings are lacking in a proper frequency balance, so this should be a big help.  Not because I want to match frequencies, but because if can hear that something's not quite right with my mix, this might at least point me in the right direction. My plan is to adjust the frequencies in the mix to keep them more in line with the suggested spectrum, and then listen to it from there, not to follow it religiously. I'm kind of looking at it as a learning tool rather than an automated ME. Incidentally, to check the validity of at least the spectrum suggestions, I had it analyze a commercially released song by prog giants Yes. Using the Instrumental Rock file for the reference, the results were virtually identical.

I tried AAMS V3 rev 003 based on the Started Video explained.
I do know a bit about mastering with plugins and an audio editor.
The AAMS V3 software is much more understandable and the results are stunning.
I think i can now revert back to what i like more, that is music and mixing.
I do get a very good sound from AAMS, so i think i will not master it myself anymore.
I think about nights and days behind my computer, quessing what is the correct sound ?
I think i will spend it on what i like most now, that is making music!
Thank you for AAMS!

Writing this user review for AAMS.
I do different kinds of music for productions.
I do have my own company and work mostly from home.
My homestudio got smaller in the last few years.
Simply said AAMS is a really great product for i do more and more with it.
The spectrum analyzer makes a good view and mastering is allmost allways spot on.
The new AAMS V3 is surely an improvement with the envelope curves.
I allmost never adjust things, sometimes a bit, but mostly AAMS is spot on correct.

User Review 21

We all know that mastering is an all important part of the music audio process. An audio engineer buddy of mine suggested piping my video audio through a program called "Auto Audio Mastering System" or AAMS. Provided him with a 48/16 stereo wave file for processing. The program material was primarily speech, music and ambient sound. Within the program, you can choose from dozens of presets. The program will then process your audio to these prescribed specs. We discussed how this process in "no way" takes the place of a talented mastering engineer. He uses it on audio projects that will probably never make it that far. The results were surprisingly good. The finished audio had a smooth, professional sound. Not just compression or limiting, but a combination of equalization, compression and balance that I thought greatly improved the audio. This is a standalone program, not real time processing, such as a plugin would provide. It took about 4 times the audio length to process.

AAMS is grazy good software. I am a user since 2009 and sill happy with AAMS V2.
Sound is allways greatly improved and i master all my tracks with AAMS.
The new version is even more awsome, because it sounds better and more subtle.
I love the fact i can now create my own sound by adjusting and taking clones.
If you do not know what this is ? This is the mastering software you need.
Not to think twice about that!

AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System is intended to assist musicians and sound technicians in creating the final version of their mixes, ready to be released to the public. The audio mastering process enables you to prepare a mix for being distributed by fixing distractions in tonality, volume, noises or distortion.
Getting accustomed to the application doesn't require you to be a professional mastering engineer, although some basic knowledge and some time is required to find out what each function does. The interface is definitely note the best we've seen, but it provides one-click access to all the options. It takes some time to set up your own reference master and this is done by allowing the program to analyze sets of songs with characteristics similar to what you plan on obtaining. Practically, you can give all your mixes the feel of your best song. AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System aims to help you test the sound quality of your audio materials. It analyzes MP3 or WAV source files and then uses them as a reference system for further input sounds. Alternatively, you can use one of the many reference files that the application comes with. The collection includes reference systems for a wide range of genres, from classic music and ballads to disco, funk, electronic and rock. AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System enables you to view the waveform display and the spectrum graph of the loaded songs and provides suggestions for the equalizer, compression and volume settings. Also, it can be used for digital signal processing, applying the necessary corrections to your mix in order to make it sound great. Thus, you can adjust fading and get better results by using a multiband compressor or a parametric EQ, change the master balance, normalize WAV files and more. AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System comes with a set of tools that can help you create your final CD, even if you don't know much about mastering. It allows you to correct obvious differences between songs and create a recording that can captivate the audience.

To Whom It May Concern, this is my personal recommendation for AAMS V3.
I have been using and testing AAMS V3 to be consistently pleasant.
AAMS V3 takes charge and is creative and communicates the benefits.
AAMS V3 will result in increased revenue, increase in profits.
AAMS V3 is an asset to your efforts, also extraordinarily helpful in all audio areas.
AAMS V3 has a leadership role in audio mastering, inspiring and motivating all users and testers.
I highly recommend AAMS V3, a team player and makes a great asset to anyone working with audio.

Except that I'm glad I bought the license. Thank you for creating this software. I would have never discovered AAMS by myself. The reference file I used was in the Rock folder. It had 1990-2015 in the title. Admittedly, I didn't audition many reference files, so I'm sure there are more suitable ones for my music. I like how you can create your own. I made one from a Soundgarden song I really like the sound of, and used it on one of mine. Very cool program. There are so many things you can do with AAMS. I haven't even scratched the surface!

My name is Diederich and i soly make music at home.
I had some good and bad times with my studio and setup.
I bought tons on equipment and speakers, studio walls and mixing desks.
I spent on computers and laptops, software and plugins / sequencers.
On wave editting tools and even more.
But never found out how to create 'that terriffic sound'.

Now i think AAMS is better and would do much gear away.

AAMS V3 is not a secret, like most other mastering services.
AAMS V3 tells you what to do and show you in text, numbers and charts.
In this way you can learn, hear and know how to get better.
You can even create your own exact sound or copy from others.
Combine sounds together and re-use them over and over.
Easy, Precise and Fast. Who else does this ?

AAMS is my secret sound tool, do not tell any others about it!

An easy-to-use mastering app that can yield excellent results. There’s currently nothing else like it!
Overall, it's a great mastering tool. It's a bit tricky learning how to operate it correctly, but once you get the hang of it, it's a great tool to use and the price is absolutely right! It's okay "out of the box" but once I spent several hours with it, massaging the controls and learning the ins and outs, I'm very happy with the results. With AAMS, I have better than good quality demos, bordering on downright professional sounding recordings, all for a price anyone can afford!

I have been using AAMS for several years now, first the free version, and then finally paying for the full version. The full version is worth the money, period. A lot of mastering engineers may look down at the software, but that is because they would be out of a job if they actually admitted how good AAMS really is! You may never need another mastering tool besides AAMS ever again! It’s just that good!!

User Review 54

Now before you go off the deep end, I just came across this and am still playing with it.
I was impressed with the analysis it does of your WAV or MP3 file and it actually seems to work.
It's got quite an extensive tool kit and a good assortment of reference audio files to bounce your source against.
I think it's worth exploring. It has a complete manual with it also.
I've mastered several of my songs with this tool and it is amazing.
There are reference files (over 200) that will master your song to that genre.
It can also master individual tracks, vocal, guitar, bass and there are reference files for this also.
You can also load up a file for just EQ or compression, bounce it against a reference file, and it will give suggestions for EQ and compression that you can then apply through whatever other tool you have.
It will produce a printable reference file that you can use.
Try it out and let me know what you think. :D
Master it with one of the @master rms. settings.
The @master ones seem to do the best job of not crunching out the middle.
Also, the reference files are definitely designed to beat up the loudness war and appear to be designed more to master multiple songs for use on a CD or album rendition.
P.S. Just my humble opinion but the auto mastered version separates the guitars and brings out the lead better.
It also set the loudness more along an AGC setting, keeping everything within a range.

This software is fantastic. It allows the automatic mastering of your music against the analysis of other tracks. Take your best song and master everything with the same feel (audio spectrum). OK, for your final CD, you may want to spend time in the studio, BUT before and even after, you may want to use this software. It does what only the best studio wizards are able to attain with many grand of equipment (and plug-ins).

I discovered AAMS has also a semi manual modes.
I realised it could be of a great help to anyone trying to achive ‘professional sound'.
AAMS is a good companion for a novice user at least.

AAMS is a great product!
AAMS is constantly focusing on innovating, simple not complex, to make a great product.
Participating and making a significant contribution in audio industry, focussing on important and meaningful.
Allowing to innovate in a way that others cannot,don't settle for anything less than excellence!
AAMS does extremely well in this concept.

WHen i mix a track and i have gone through the “happy period”, i leave it alone for a couple of days.
Return to your studio and, at low to moderate level, listen to a few current commercial tunes that are in a similar style.
Listen super-critically to these hit tracks and familiarize myself with how it sounds in my room and what elements i wish to reproduce.
Now that must somehow transfer and be kept by the mastering process, or at least be done in the same style.
I use AAMS for source / reference style comparisons, because i don't want to loose my mixing into mastering disasters.
This works very well for me and must work for other as well.
So i wrote this review to tell anybody having troubles between mixing and mastering, that there is a solution to this timestaking worry nights!

I am using AAMS, and it's been a huge help. I rarely match another EQ curve exactly, but AAMS certainly points me in the right direction. When I've got things sounding pretty good in the overall mix and I'm not sure why it's not quite right, I run an AAMS EQ analysis and compare it to a commercial mix. If my vocal or guitar isn't quite cutting it, I'll do an AAMS EQ analysis against an isolated commercial vox/vocal or guitar, and make adjustments accordingly. The usefulness of this AAMS tool is that it gives you a starting point, so if I notice that my vocal has several db less 3K but several db more 5K, I'll start messing around with those frequencies until it sounds better in context of my mix. There has been a lot negative said about this type of program, but I couldn't disagree more. AAMS has been one of the single biggest contributors to the improvement of my knowledge and the sound of my mixes.

I've mastered several of my songs with this tool and it is amazing. There are reference files (over 200) that will master your song to that genre.
It can also master individual tracks, vocal, guitar, bass and there are reference files for this also. You can also load up a file for just EQ or compression, bounce it against a reference file, and it will give suggestions for EQ and compression that you can then apply through whatever other tool you have. It will produce a printable reference file that you can use. Try it out and let me know what you think. :D

Have used last night the new AAMS version, and i have never heard of this before.
I tried different software and internet sites that do mastering.
Sure i am impressed, at first just quite flabberquested because i was thinking too much it is a hassle.
But this is not, when you are using this software a few times on a track.
Hear the sound and i believe this is software is worth it to check out.
I will test this more, but until now i am really impressed.
The sound is good, so i need to investigate more, because i do not believe this really can be done by software and my own computer!

I am certainly no Mastering Engineer, but I have been involved in tracking and mixing for the last 18 years, and a musician for over 40 years. Presently, I, and my fellow musician friends just record for fun as a hobby. Although my long-time friend and musician and I are working on a CD of some of the old cover songs we did in the 60's and 70's for posterity's sake. Out of interest I downloaded this AAMS software (I haven't purchased yet) and have been running a couple of mixed cover songs I have completed through this software. I used an original copy of the song as a reference and was surprised at the results. To my ears it sounded pretty well balanced and good enough for our project. My point is, everyone on these Forums are recording music for many different reasons, some professional, some semi pro, and some just as a hobby. Of course a professional mastering engineer could do better, but for those of us who cannot afford, or justify the cost of a Pro these programs do provide a decent service. And, we can learn a lot about the mastering process. What can be wrong with that?

User Review 13


Actually think it`s does a fairly decent job . The only problem with it is finding the right reference track. We use it in our studio for our "budget" low cost recording to keep the cost down for our customers and so far people have been very happy with the results . Engineers are going to hate it that’s for sure, well most will . Personally it save a lot of time in our studio as we have a lot of clients that come in record a few songs to backing tracks and don`t have a lot of money to pay me by the hour to master them properly, so this is a great alternative option to a) save our clients’ money b) allows us to take on clients on a tight budget and c)doesn`t cost a huge amount of money to buy. Finally , as you can load it up with wavs and let it get on with it you can get on and do other things making it a very useful tool in our busy environment. P.s. One more thing to mention. If you master a track yourself ,using Wavelab or whatever you use ,that’s going on a certain album you can create a reference track from that and then use AAMS to master the rest of the album using that reference track and for that is works very well.

I downloaded AAMS this weekend, read the manual and watched the demo-videos.
I am flabbergasted that you have made this Audio Mastering software.
This is going to be a HUGE aid in my mastering process.
I've been looking for an inexpensive alternative to Har-Bal and this certainly fits the bill!
Thanks so much for your generosity!

I do own AAMS and what it does is almost magic. It simplifies the mastering process to an almost child-like level (in auto). The reference files are ok...I'm having success with the rock reference. The ability to create your own reference files from your favorite CD is very cool. I'm sure in the future I will learn to master manually. For now, I'm saving cash and have a finshed, polished product that actually sounds good.

AAMS does a great job. If you are not a trained engineer, no matter if you use ozone and work a couple of days in one track, AAMS will ever deliver you a better master. Will AAMS deliver a pro master? No. Will it be a great master? Possibly no. Will it be a good alternative if I don’t have money or don’t want to spend money in a pro master by now? Hell yes. In the end of the day, the question is a balance between what you can do/ how much money you have/ how much time you have.

Our band tried it out for our demo recordings, we also had a guy to master for us for free because he wanted to use some tracks for advertising his new studio and two of us tried our own hand at "mastering" so we had plenty of versions of the same songs to choose from. In the end the AAMS seemed to make "neat" masters, not much wrong.

I am an elderly non-techy grandma, and it is becoming more and more difficult for me to learn and use new programs these days. AAMS software is exceptionally easy to use, and the free version did everything I needed it to do. I took on the job to write/direct/produce a 12 minute club skit for a competition, with no budget for studio time. I needed a Windows 7 compatible editing tool to customize our music. With the AAMS software, I did the job like an expert! The end product sounds professionally done, and the process was not at all intimidating. I am very pleased, and my club is in awe of my accomplishment. I'm not telling them how easy it was! One ps, the download somehow killed my wireless router, and I had to re-install the router.
Thank goodness for this.

The amount of styles as references is good, sometimes i tweak them into my own.
AAMS is very very very usefull for me, it does more then mastering.
But i take it will not be everyones tool, still afther a while AAMS software is easy.
It first it can mislead you into hardness or strange tool.
As the manual reads, just try a few single button masterings first.
And later on you get the grips more, you will find out this can be a lifesaver.

Sorohanro Selfik

Statement 5

Mastering, a form of audio post production, is the process of preparing and transferring recorded audio from a source containing the final mix to a final mastering result.
In recent years digital masters have become usual although analog masters are still around and sometimes regarded more rounding.
Mastering requires critical listening! However, software tools exist to facilitate the process.
Mastering is a crucial gateway between production and consumption and, as such, it involves technical knowledge as well as specific aesthetics.
Results still depend upon the accuracy of speaker monitors and the listening environment or accuracy of a computer calculations.
Apply corrective equalization and dynamic compression in order to optimise sound translation on all playback systems.

AAMS is a all in one solution!

Sounds like it might be handy for those home made projects that would never make it to the mastering studio anyway.
A bit of spit and polish for soundcloud maybe. Will try it out...
Edit-Tried it.. On the couple of tracks I tried it on it did a pretty good job.
These are a couple old tracks I had I was going to just post on soundcloud..
Certainly lifted them , gave them some clarity and heft.
Worth giving this software a try at least, next step is to make some of my own references..

AAMS is very interesting software that automatically masters your recordings. There's a freeware version and a pro version. I tried it out a few of my test recordings and most of them sounded much better. The free version adds 50 band EQ, 4 band Compression and Loudness control.... the pro version uses a 100 point EQ, 8 band compression.., and you have a choice of hundreds of reference settings from various styles of music. You can watch the video's and get started right away mastering your files on your computer. I was surprised by how much better my recordings sounded. I burned a few cd's to listen on my truck's sound system and was very impressed. I did a bunch of A/B tests and the mastered versions came out on top every time. It does indeed seem to work nicely.

I bought this before the price was reduced to $65, and I still don't regret it. No problems installing it or running it. The good reference master set up takes some time, but once that's done it's pretty much 3 mouse clicks. I definitely recommend creating your own reference master by letting it analyze some songs that have sonic characteristics (dynamics, stereo field, tone, etc.) similar to what you want your songs to sound like. I've tried a few cheap mastering services, and I can get better results myself with a multiband compressor and parametric EQ. But if you do understand mastering (even if, like me, you're not particularly good at it), and you're going to be mastering more than a few songs, then AAMS can be an indispensable part of the toolkit. It takes 100% of the tedium out of the process (if you've ever used a multiband compressor but you aren't a professional mastering engineer, you probably know what I mean). First time I used it I was mixing a cheap demo for a band, asked 'em what bands they thought had killer production, they gave me a CD with the desired amount of thump and presence, I let AAMS analyze it, used that as the reference master, played them the result and they were like "demo my a**, that's a finished product". Obviously, if you're starting with a crappy mix there's only so much it can do (you can't polish a turd), but AAMS can make a good mix sound phenomenal.

Fan of AAMS since 2008!
First i did use AAMS not so ofthen, but now it comes more and more.
Last from 2010 until now 2015, i use AAMS on all and would not even do without!
The guy who programmed this is knowing what he is doing and programs this in his software.
Straight up i buy the latest version AAMS V3 and why is not even the case.
AAMS software takes care of my worries and buzz for almost a decade, and i tend to use each upcomming version.
Even i know it is free software, but hey i depend on it!

I am needed of a program that can do audio mastering using 2 of my audio outputs.
I wanted to have music good and use my headset to mix.
I had and have absolutely no idea how to do this.
I have "stereo mix" enabled in my sound recording studio outs and record that.
I'm going to be streaming some games music and my songs.
What would be REALLY cool is if the program or utility could automatically adjust the level of one input if another got louder or quieter
...and if it was free.
AAMS does!

I compared my files of the Neumann mics Guitar recording A/B'ed with the original vs mastered with the AAMS software. The levels were about the same now, however the AAMS mastered track has more depth and a richer tone thru out the recordings and really shines on the last strum of the guitar! The EQ adjustments in AAMS seemed to have helped. I'm getting there. AAMS is good mastering software, i stick with it.

Just got this for 95 bucks and used it on a new track. I really only registered on this site to remark about it. it's awesome! would it be better to send your material out to a pro mastering house? probably, that's where real mastering happens. BUT, if you are going to track and master your own stuff at home - get this. learn it and use it!

Thx!

I hate mixing except when you hit those "aha" moments when everything has its own frequency space and it sounds wonderful.
Getting everything balanced frequency wise on your own stuff is always a bitch...
I hate the fact that i needed years of practice to get decent results!

Knowing there is this software AAMS that takes and analyzes what i do wrong and right, corrects it and throws a punch at it.
Now I love mixing!

Pfff, this software takes all Mastering of my mixes and the sound is way better then just dropping it.
First i mixed and mastered (turned up the volume and limit it), and i put it out.
The sound was good, but hey this software is something else.
It improves sound as EQ / Compression and Loudness / Balance.
I in a million years cannot understand that, i am a DJ, not a sound expert.
Great software that takes the controls over where i dont want it, and amazing!
Still i just use the DJ preset and one-button it!

For mastering this is what i do, and yeah i cheat a bit..
Unless you have a million dollar studio use automastering (AAMS) its way better if you can find a suitable match.

there is no limits with the AAMS program and you can analyze ANY audio you want.

I know this is heresy to an ME, but I kind of like it. I was worried that it might squash my files with over-compression, but no. I only lost 1db of DR using AAMS. The changes it makes to my files is subtle and, so far, pleasing. It certainly can be a substitute for the ears of a real mastering engineer, but for the home hobbyist, it's really an interesting tool!

User Review 42

I gave it a 4 since I didn't see a 4.46898764 rating. (smile). Perhaps like most, I was too eager to try this in auto mode - and figured I could successfully do so with little reading. NO GO! The files to be mastered must be in a certain format - he provides the tools to convert! Each "error" I have encountered was due to file format. It will mix according to "references" - and he provides dozens to start with. I have already used a commercial recording to manufacture additional reference. It made a particular original composition sound even sweeter. This doesn't replace that a decent mix needs to be input first - ie enter one with too loud of a bass drum then it may still come out as such. You can, however, listen to one of the tracks written in stages and edit them. I must admit, I can hardly wait to make my first of what I hope will be many donations - I plan to use it on others' projects when I become more proficient! I did get another type of error - out of memory - I have a work around. Since the program labels every phase of mastering on a separate file, simply use the last "good" file and continue the processing on the next step. If you have found one reference that you like for a number of files, they can be processed in batch mode.

AAMS already sounds realistically mastered enough to begin with! Being more reproducible, but I can still imagine many cases wherein AAMS could be a lifesaver, especially if your speakers/headphones are not the best you could get, then you could still be safe if your song sounds like a professionally mastered reference song through quantitative spectral merits.
How there are a lot of frequency bands! I wish I understood what this spectrum or EQ means beyond knowing that it looks cool! I will dig into it and Master AAMS!

Mastering your tracks can be a bit of a minefield and is often seen as the domain of the professional.
However, AAMS is the turnover and is way ahead to the pros.
If your tracks are just for demo purposes, a DJ set or even use on the net ?
You want to tackle the job yourself.
And giving jobs to experts will cost you more than you can earn ?
Yes you need a professional sound for a better price ?

AAMS is a really good solution! AAMS it with good sound on all systems.
And on the way you even get better understanding how to process music!
It is way cheaper, you can do this over and over, at simply no costs.

I have a studio and a lot of work for bands albums.
I do regular work for everyone, alike recording mixing and even mastering.
With the last few years i use AAMS and re-use AAMS on all kinds of music.
My expirience with AAMS is that it is not only a mastring tool quite well.
It helps to sort out mixing skills as well, the DSP-EQ and Spectrum is really a helpfull display.
Too much or too less? I do know i would not do without AAMS anymore.
What took me weeks to do correct, or i would never find the best earable sound!
Now this is over, AAMS points to where i must go with my mixes.
AAMS is to my satisfaction speed and keeps an interesting point of view to compare against.
Now i take alike recordings, analyze and batch to a new reference.
And use that to master the albums, faster, easyer and with better results than before AAMS.

Comparing Mixes and Music, I liked the AAMS mastered version better. The low end of the Original sounds a little boomy on my speakers. The AAMS mastered version took that away. The AAMS mastered version sounds a little compressed to me, which is good, sounds more professional, sort like a James Taylor tune.

It takes time to get a good master even with some of the best plugins and monitors. AAMS will give you a great starting point, and is well worth the money for those on a budget or musicians do not have the time for mastering. In my opinion AAMS is very good A+.A few people on the net have made the comment on the length of time it takes to run the auto feature. Well AAMS is nothing compared to the amount of time it would have taken to do a mastered version of a song at the same quality AAMS software produces! Unless your some kind of mastering wizard you can't compare. What impressed me the most was how the auto feature applies compression. Either way if you like it or believe it or not AAMS is a great software!

User Review 17

Mix reviews,...guess every one into different style of sound, I been mixing and mastering for few years now, used tools like oZone, T-racks, and also individual vst such as waves, one thing I came across was that the quality of a mix is very important for AAMS to work, when you use a reference file or load one form "e.g. a Roadrunner CD." When you mastering manually you can hear frequencies and just cut em or raise them, however lets be logical AAMS just applies the reference setting from your source file to your mix. With my experience it works very well when applied to a mix with perfect levels on each track.... and that is waht mastering is ment for!
AAMS is great for mastering purposes.

User Review 23

Deeply intrigued, I snagged this program for Vista (running on my Parallels) and am considering doing some tests with it to see if this is actually an improvement over whatever mastering chain I am currently running. I can't imagine the results are going to be all that great! I jumped on the Dynasone bandwagon ten years ago with the mindset that having a processor do "automated mastering" for me would be better than if I just attempted to do it on my own, but this actually sounds like there's a lot more involved under the hood. Also, it actually details its analysis of your incoming music with a text file, in case you want to apply its settings to your own plugs and just master your material without it. At the very least, it might improve my film stuff, where I'm on a tight deadline and can't afford to tweak a mastering chain. Anyway, I thought I'd share!

Ronald Brun

User Review 35

I tried it for fun, and while I agree that software like this can never replace good ears of an experienced mastering engineer, AAMS did a better job than I had expected, has quite a few tweakable parameters, and can even be used in a sort of hybridized fashion by disabling some or all of the automated features. As much as I hate to say it since I do some mastering work, this may be a great product for the "weekend warrior" musician/engineer who wants a quick "finessing" before offering their newest tunes to a friend or at a party. And now that it is free/donationware, it may entice more people than ever to not pay for better mastering until they think they are ready. I know that this should be a good thing, making it all accessible, but there is a part of me that is afraid that software like this, while being ok, it may also lower the standards for some people of what is "finished". Once people are convinced that what these software's do is "mastering", then the desire for a better job can be diminished..... Or am I just being paranoid and self-serving.....? Anyway, it did a better job than I had expected, and for some reason this bothers me...lol.

User Review 58

First of all, let's start by explaining what exactly mixing and mastering is. The first term, mixing, refers to the process of putting multiple layers of audio together to make one final track, or to musically modify an existing track.
The second term, mastering, refers to the process of optimizing the final track using all sorts of different mastering elements such as compression, equalization, stereo enhancement and more.

AAMS does the Mastering part very well and improves Mixing skills!
Recommended Here, I am a AAMS user for 8 years now.

I’ve worked as a professional mastering engineer for over 20 years now, and my honest opinion is that with the technology available now, the answer is “Yes”.
Of course, as a mastering engineer I’d always recommend you take your music to a pro!
But I also realise that you may not want to – perhaps you want to learn how to master yourself.
You may not have the budget for mastering – or maybe you even want to learn how to be a mastering engineer yourself.
And, it’s all free !

Some time ago i had reviewed AAMS V2.5 Rev 006.
The main troubles where the limit on playtime 10-15 Minutes.
I now tested AAMS V3 and the playtime increased on the Freeware Version to 25 Minutes.
And on the Pro-Version to over 1 hour!
That is a good thing! Tested it for quality and next day gone for the pro-version of AAMS V3.
AAMS V3 does read more audio formats, so that is a good improvement!

There are books and instruction manuals on how to correctly equalize, compress and master your music, but it all boils down to what sounds good to you. The overall sound of your song is what is most important, not the exact process you took to get there. The single most important thing is to listen and trust your ear. Download AAMS Freeware and make one master with it, test your ears and decide...

If you've got a good set of ears and an open mind the results are clear!

I used the stock "rock" profile and it tightened up the bass very well and tamed the harshness.  So far so good. I REALLY like that it gives you a text file detailing all of the (M/S) EQ changes and multiband comp settings.  I had no changes greater than 2db so at least I know my mix isn't completely whacked out.  I'm going to go back and try to re-balance the mix with these EQ suggestions in mind. Even if I don't use AAMS to "master" it could prove to be a very useful tool. Thanks for the heads up Smurf! I'll definitely check out AAMS. I have to say, this concept seems to fall in the "too good to be true" category for me. But I'll try it

Can anyone tell me if the AAMS wav file that results after processing has the suggestions in the .doc file applied ? I ran a song of mine through it and it does sound different, sure it is better. Just wondering if you're to then go through and try the suggested tweaks, or if the wav file that results already has the suggested tweaks applied. Yes and yes! Thank you and thank you!

After working with AAMS on and off for a couple weeks, I've found it to be fairly useful in its spectrum analysis. I wouldn't let it auto master anything, as the results were usually pretty bad. However, I had it do the analysis on a mix that sounded pretty good, but wasn't quite there yet. Rather than just letting it do the mastering, I went back to the mix and applied some of the changes to individual tracks from the spectogram after analysis. This has made a substantial improvement to the mix. It's not quite pro yet, but it's a lot closer than it was a week ago. It certainly pointed out some frequency things that were problematic that I wasn't catching. I also had it analyze a few different commercially released songs to compare the spectra.
In the same genre, it was surprising how similar most were. There were certainly some differences, as we would expect, but not as many as I would have thought. Given that there are differences, I'd suggest adjusting the frequency balance of the mix according to the spectogram, then make the mix sound good again by ear. Great learning tool for a mix, and later on master that improved mix from learing tool AAMS and make the final master with AAMS.
Works Great!

Pros: I was not sure if this would work, but this program has truly taken our quality to another level.
Cons: To be honest, for what it can do I don't think I'd change a thing except maybe make the process faster. (But it is very quick already)

AAMS is ready to replace compare our highly skilled mastering engineers. It (or any similar product) probably never will be. But it has a value outstanding. I've used it, and had success with it. I even think it did a better job of mastering my band's album than our mastering engineer's first attempt (we were getting the album mastered at around the time I was trying AAMS out).

User Review 40

I tried it for fun, and while I agree that software like this can never replace good ears of an experienced mastering engineer. AAMS did a better job than I had expected, has quite a few tweakable parameters, and can even be used in a sort of hybridized fashion by disabling some or all of the automated features. As much as I hate to say it since I do some mastering work, this may be a great product for the "weekend warrior" musician/engineer who wants a quick "finessing" before offering their newest tunes to a friend or at a party. And now that it is free/donationware, it may entice more people than ever to not pay for better mastering until they think they are ready. I know that this should be a good thing, making it all accessible, but there is a part of me that is afraid that software like this, while being ok, it may also lower the standards for some people of what is "finished". I felt the same way the first time I tried the ready-made presets of both IK Multimedia's T-Racks and Izotope Ozone. Once people are convinced that what these software's do is "mastering", then the desire for a better job can be diminished. Or am I just being paranoid and self-serving ? Anyway, it did a better job than I had expected, and for some reason this bothers me...lol.

Super! I was impressed by the report function that actually lays out what it is going to tweak. Suggestion, just for a quick take, take one of your songs, use the auto master a WAV file and when it asks for a reference load the @master RMS.aam. It is simply amazing what it does (it will take several minutes to run through the whole process depending on your computer's speed and ram). You can then look at the report to show you what it did.
When you play the mastered file you will really hear the subtle differences. When you get more into it, some of the options are tremendous. It has a 100 band EQ - amazing. :D

Mastering is one of the most important links in the chain of music production.
Yet, it is probably the least understood and most abused!
Ask a mastering engineer and he says he does with his ears.
Some others have all kinds of plugins in a chain.
Ask me and i do mastering with AAMS!
If you are a Pro, consider your thinking and do try this tool!
If you are like me, amateur believing in pro, you cannot disregard this tool!
It has too much value to leave AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System alone!
AAMS V3 now has outstanding value!

User Review 137

I still haven’t had enough time to fully understand the depths of this beast. What Denis has created is an EQ like no other! It stands shoulder to shoulder with the best mastering EQs on the planet! And not to begin what this L+mid+R EQ does, balancing perfectly left, Mids, right out. The multiband compressor I don't even try to describe. Balancing and Loudness are done tastefully. In the end the sound that you prefer can be created or edited by adjusting the reference. For a mastering software the price is very completive and support exceptional, mainly because the competition lies so far behind. For many busy Mastering Engineers keen for a return on their investment this may just be the deal breaker. It’s a solid work horse that you and your clients will enjoy! And you don't even have to tell them what you are using!

I do videos"for SoundCloud" and "for YouTube".
I follow in AAMS the recommended best practices for Mastered for iTunes though, which (in my view) apply to any lossy format.
So i setup AAMS DSP-Loudness for dynamic range to be -10dB.
Such as avoiding clipping and distortion, and keeping peaks below -1dBFS.
Benefit to improving your sound on SoundCloud and YouTube, is that you will be achieving better recordings mixes, too!

AAMS is great in our studio now, and I've already used it on many masterings. What can I say -> it's wonderful! I can hear the differences much better, so the imaging really moves a big step forward or whichever direction one chooses, but I also love the EQ on it as well. Very very nice indeed! But, like I've said, I've only gotten started, so there is a lot of experimenting and trying out ahead of me. Once again - great tool!

What sets AAMS a part from other software or plugins / hardware is total devotion to customer satisfaction.
I am involved in the tools AAMS has, we are never finished until totally satisfied.
AAMS makes it very easy for newcomers and for the highly technical approachers!
Both can do wonderous audio jobs with a feel for balance and loudness in your audio you input.
Simply put, if you treat mixing and mastering as separate stages, your tracks are likely to sound much better.
AAMS will blur music into one seamless process.
Begin to understand why a separate mastering tool is such a good idea.
Well Done!

Well the AAMS software Pro Version, has 200 different algorithms to choose from. So you can pick different styles of processing for your specific song. It's not a one size fits all type of deal. You can also create your own algorithms and save your sound for other recordings. It's interesting software, I've never heard of anything like it. I like the idea that I can master a whole song or just a track if I want. Today in my experiments with it, I mastered a short vocal track, just to see what it would sound like...I was very impressed. The track came back with some nice EQ and Compression and was just a tad bit louder.

I am a DJ on tour, i tend to record some of my performances in 1/2 hour or 1 hour mixes.
Mastering was a hassle and quality let me down for ages, several tracks DJ Mixed together means taking care of all.
A job i tend to do with some EQ and Loudness. But i felt it was not there, it needed more.
Years ago i used AAMS V2 but was limited by playtime.
I found out by a kind email of Denis that AAMS V3 can do longer playtimes now (tested over 1 hour).
So this exites me to use AAMS V3 for the last few months.
I even stopped DJing for a while because i wanted everything re-done in AAMS V3, it is such a great tool now for DJ's!
Now i am on the road again and i know i keep recording mixing my stuff, so i can later on put them on streaming services.
The quality with the normal House and DJ references presets are good enough to blow my mind, i never could do this.
It would take too much time and still i suspect i would not reach the quality AAMS generates.
One reminder, what you put in must be of some quality, what comes out is of even more quaility!
5 Plus awards here for AAMS and Denis for fixing the maximum playtime!

AAMS is powerful audio software with which you can do a mastering of music pieces.
Very precise changes of EQ and dynamics of signals! With Tube Compressor and Loudness.
The ability to record my dj mixes which is all I really need so ideally a free program.
Tonight we are mixing drum and bass which is our prefered genre.
It helps me in my music career... i am so greatful..
and i will advise every musician or instrumentalist to try because it is the best!

"Best $112 I ever spent". Give it some time to analyze a CD that has dynamics, stereo field & other sonic characteristics you want, then use that reference on your own songs, the results are stunning. If you understand mastering enough to tweak the settings it's even better.

User Review 53

Consider it a learning tool.
It has potential to be something offered within a DAW as a simple way of learning about mastering and the types of adjustments you make.
Within this software are some really amazing individual pieces.
The EQ tool alone is cool! And it doesn't force you into changes it just makes suggestions so you can tweak it any way you want.
I,m happy with it. :D
Okay I finished the stems (well except for one track I have to fix the mixdown on) and this solution worked.
When I loaded all of the mastered stems into a pro tools session and bounced them again afterwards as one track...
it sounded exactly the same as the original master so success :)

I'm glad I bought the license. The reference file I used was in the Rock folder. It had 1990-2015 in the title. Admittedly, I didn't audition many reference files, so I'm sure there are more suitable ones for my music. I like how you can create your own. I made one from a Soundgarden song I really like the sound of, and used it on one of mine. Very cool program. There are so many things you can do with AAMS. I haven't even scratched the surface!

I love your product AAMS. I believe you have gone into uncharted territory and have demystified the "art" of Mastering and have made it a "science". You Sir, are miles ahead in the Mastering business! Anyway, I would like to help your project by correctly translating the Spanish info of your program. It seems the translation was done with a generic translator, and needs some refinement. I am a United Stated military retired veteran linguist, so rest assured your translation would be the best. As soon as I get some money, I will also make a donation, but in the mean time I can do a free proper Spanish translation. What do you say?

AAMS V3 mastering process brings out the depth, warmth and energy in your mixes which is what makes music fun to listen to.
AAMS V3 Audio mastering also aims to reduce aspects of your mix that listeners might not enjoy so much, such as noises, harshness or loud transients.
AAMS V3 having your song professionally mastered, your mix will reach its maximum musical potential.

User Review 51

I remember trying to use AAMS a couple years ago.
I liked the idea behind it. But I couldn't get it to do what I wanted, so I tossed it.
Now, I have been recording music for 30 years, so I trust my ears completely.
But not everything can be done "by ear", especially mastering.
What is important is how well something translates to all systems.
Certainly not the same art as mixing!

I recently came back to AAMS to give it a shot.
So what I do is take my final WAV and load it up in AAMS to render out a source file.
I then load that file up as the SOURCE for the program.
Then I choose a reference file according to what I am looking for.
In most cases, it is MODERN. Once that is loaded, AAMS shows me the preconfigured curve for a modern sound.
It compares it to my source file. I finally load up my WAV file under the EQ tab and AAMS automatically applies the changes on the fly.
Following the directions of the manual, I eventually render out a new EQ'd copy.

IN every single case, my files come out perfectly mastered to sound awesome on any system great or small.
This may be dependent upon the idea that I mix my material very well.
But the big question to ask here is "Can we actually rely upon the AAMS reference files?"
I truly believe we can. We can pick a few different ones to use and eventually we will come to know which ones work best for us.
But still, AAMS is dependent upon how much work you did beforehand.
After all, mastering is not the major part of making a demo. The hard work comes before that.

So i found this one by google and downloaded / installed.
I read some forums good or bad talking this software.
Read also a part of the beginning of the manual, but hey i am soon starting the software on windows.
Put in some stereo tracks, choose some references styles out of the database.
I get a cup of coffee and i waited out the results.
Listened and compared to the original tracks songs, i am very happy what does come out of AAMS mastering audio ends.
I have to take a good look and spend some more time with AAMS software to understand what it is doing.
As for now, really happy what does come out of it.
It is al lot better than i did before with plugins and other software.

I do think in all those years my understanding of music is fine.
My mixes sound good while i mix.
But mastering was not something i did like at all.
Spending time on mixing and hearing gets fattique, it is painstaking.
And comparing on different speakers, mixing with headphones (i have a wife) is rude.
I found AAMS on the net and 3 months later i got the pro version.
Still happy with that, surviving is one thing, surpassing is another.

Anyway to AAMS. Having tried it on a 'decent' mix (corrected in harbal) it did quite well, I'd say it actually surpassed myself 'pretend mastered' master from Wavelab in overall depth and involvement. However it wasn't perfect and did sound a tad overdone in some areas. Surely spending more time with the tool and disabling / toning down those components would help. I do like your advice on choosing the best mix for the album as the reference (either AAMS or manual) as I'd not read that before! And sure sometimes I have mixes that sound much better overall than others.

I am a first user of AAMS V2.0 when it came out, that is a few years ago.
Since then i use this good tool on and off. Mostly for mastering purposes.
Sometimes i like to fiddle around and listen mixes for pre-mastering, just to hear what can be better.
AAMS allways will point out where to go and where the sound sits / gets better.
Mostly this is EQ L+R based, where i was years go suppriced with results of AAMS.
Still i am managing between manual EQ and AAMS DSP-EQ, trusting my ears was before AAMS my thingy.
But now, i know AAMS can point out differences and i can hear them, i would never find out.
So really in all 5 years or so, AAMS got way better and has taken over some or most part of the finding out parts now.
It is a workhorse and makes me more concentrated on the sound of mixing, instead of worrying how my mix would sound as mastered.
So i give AAMS the thrust now, because to me AAMS has proven itself.
I am new to AAMS V3, but most parts are still the same.
Something is better, the sound got increased to again a step better.
But i have to see what is new, (user styles tweaking> intresting?!).

Keep up the good work Denis.

I asked him how much work it took and what i should pay him.
It's Free he said. Sounds good in money, but the sound was greatly better.
I do not use AAMS but he does, and each time i send him my tracks or DJ timed mix.
He send me back the completed and editted / mastered versions.

From Poland in my homestudio i work on mixing for myself.
AAMS website and AAMS software is learning me and mastering my tracks.
Nice sound from my mixes, aams makes better stereo spread and balance.
The loudness could be harder but i never did adjust anything.
Working on complete sets of albums for streaming or CD, helps AAMS me to get things together.
I do not understand the compression of AAMS, but if tracks are not compressed, things can be tough.
So in my mix i try to compress to have good levels on each track.
That works better for mastering, and AAMS is the same.
Enjoyed this much!

I have been using AAMS since the software came out.
It has been the main software for getting the mastered sound i like and need.
Mostly i work with my own presets, somehow created with AAMS V2.

it has been a welcome addition and hope to get other users see why.
AAMS is so important, i cannot even imagine doing the job without.

I payed way too much on the net for my music to get out, and still not happy.
WHy my sound was not so good? I really do not know until now.
The only thing what did it right was a program called AAMS.
I redone my MP3's of my music and put it back in the same place.
I can hear myself that this works better and sound overall good / fantastic even.
So happy now to record and finish on my laptop.

The world of music has changed.

Decades ago, if you were a musician, and you wanted to record an album,
You and your band played your asses off in bars and clubs every night,
And prayed that some bigshot producer in the audience who would impressed enough to give you a shot.
But not anymore.
Today, the trend in music production is shifting more and more toward home studios.
Great music is being produced all the time in bedrooms, garages, and basements by normal folks like you and me.
Record a song, post it online, watch it go viral..
and you’re famous overnight.
While it’s not that EASY, it is that SIMPLE.
But before any of that can happen, you must first know the process of how music actually is recorded.

On this site the Basic Mixing I,II,II course is worth reading and it is free!

The use AAMS helps you for Mastering and fixing your mixes.

AAMS V3 - Is highly recommended. Mastering is easy and with the user controls for Reference Spectrum and EQ Spectrum, i can now adjust the outcome to my likes. And even save a reference preset for the next time! Mastering is running up to 1,5 Hours of music and that still got mastered perfectly. Now like me doing all kinds of mixes and DJ stuff this is a welcome upgrade from V2 to V3! I am glad to use this software for many years and the improvements are very welcome here. Thx Denis!

Statement 2

The mastering with AAMS can give your music the soaring highs and booming lows it needs to compete against all the other releases out there.
Every major label release is mastered to prepare it for radio play and retail sale.
In the studio you record one song at a time, resulting in songs that all peak at different levels and have different EQs.
As AAMS mastering can unify your album with skillful use of EQ, gain, and compression to give it a consistent sound.
From track to track. AAMS also pumps up the volume of your overall album.
So it’s as hot as can be and make it sound unbelievable.
With music mastering with AAMS you can get the professional sound you want at a fraction of the cost.
You’ll get the same exact treatment that perfectionists such as commercial tracks.
A fresh pair of ears can be the difference between a good sound and a great one.
A real advantage of AAMS is that an unbiased sound has determine how to get the most out of your production.
After you’ve spent weeks or even months in a recording studio listening to your CD over and over again,
AAMS can put the project into perspective for you, and let you know whether will benefit from audio post production.
After all, you only have one chance to make your music sound its best.
The choice is up to you.

User Review 22

I also use AAMS & think it is well worth the price. I mainly use it for its readouts on all the various EQ & compression settings, and then go back & make adjustment based on that...AND you get 21 days to try it out...cannot beat that! There is a standalone program that I like to use a lot, I am not good at the final stages of mastering the finished product, and this program takes a lot of the guess work out, as it is fully automated.

Mark

Statement 3

Consistency across an album.

Consideration also has to be made for how the individual tracks of an album work together when played one after another.
Is there a consistent sound ?
Are the levels matched ?
Does the collection have a common character ?
Tracks sound good in sequence and in relation to each other ?

The goal is to reconcile the differences between tracks while maintaining (or even enhancing) the character of each of them.

User Review 151

Have found this on the net somehow. Tested AAMS and was stunned! Why did i never see this software before. Anyhow it is actually mindblowingly good. It surpassed all my expectations. The sound is so good and cleared, the balancing is amazing. I dont even understand the compression, but it is so good i never heard this before. I surely recommend AAMS software to anyone. And if you do have hassitations, set away your pride and test AAMS before it tests you!

User Review 127

AAMS brings home mastering with easy and quality, but is not a magic bullet.
If you hire a mastering engineer because you think they can make your music sound radically better,
or cover up flaws in your original mix, you're going to be disappointed.
Even so AAMS helps to point you in the right directtion.
AAMS can make single tracks stand out in audio sound quality!
AAMS can make a disparate collection of tracks into a coherent album!
AAMS finds an acceptable balance between loudness and sound quality, cut an acetate where needed.
AAMS can provide a fresh perspective on your music, and even point out areas where you might have gone wrong.
AAMS ultimately lets the artist, producer or recording engineer in control but has responsibility for the way audio sounds very well.

Hey guys, Recently I discovered AAMS (Auto Audio Mastering System). This standalone software-tool claims to be able to master a wave-file with a single click (based on a reference). I tested it out and it works extremely well! It can lift your track, correct some eq-mistakes you made or add depth and body to a source. And... it's verrrrry cheap!

User Review 44

AAMS V3 just tested and i am a previous owner of AAMS V2.
AAMS V3 just got even better, now i see i can adjust the reference to my needs.
More bottom end? Highs? Mids? It is true, sometimes i needed this to do in DSP-EQ in AAMS V2.
Now in AAMS V3 this can be done directly on the Reference File and save it again.
This makes control even more precise and the function to save for later use is truely amazing stuff.
Mostly for my own collection of House music styles i just need two references, one for slow and one for fast music.
But that is my own case. For users this is controlling your own style and save it for later use.
Mastering now comes even more easy and really i am working AAMS V2 for years, this AAMS V3 feature is working it!

Thx Denis for making such improvements to really save a reference as your own style and use it again and again!

I never heard of this, I grabbed a download yesterday and had to try it. Spent most of last night on it in fact.

Thanks for the link, I'll throw the devs a few $ asap.
And I agree with Richie, it does a good job.

Gave this a go and,
It's not just an automatic process, you can do all kinds of stuff manually too.
Not bad, I tried it on an unmastered wav I saved for testing, made it louder and the lows are more pronounced as before it was thinner and edgy.
Makes it a lot easier to hear on my cheap speakers, I think the multiband compressor is boosting the lower mids.
I must say it's pretty awesome!

Hi there Denis.
First of all what a good program you have made.
I can see the many hours of programming time into it.
It surpasses everything i used in the past with glory!
After a few months working with AAMS, i do not think i could do without.
I changed the way i think about mixing and mastering.
And it did something to not trust the ears allways.
Offcourse someone can reconize A and B differences.
But i have seen and hear it becomes so subtle!
AAMS does a excellent mastering and helped me rethink my mixing and mastering experience.
Go for the pro version, because there is options that can style you your own music!

After 3 albums of mastering my own material, I decided to heed professional but be in control.
AAMS was the best decision I made.
Commercial loudness without losing musicality and deft use of EQ created a smooth, transparent, professional sounding disc.
Don’t ruin your work with your own tired ears – Pass it trough AAMS!
AAMS have made my music spring into to life with warmth , clarity and punch.
Just goes to prove you can’t always do it alone for that smooth full sound we all crave.
A superb , friendly service and great value for money.
I’ll definitely be using AAMS for all my future projects.
Many thanks!

This is showing you how to get a better sounding recording of your mixing.
Using AAMS free software that you can download.
You can use the Reference Adjust that come with it so tweak your audio.
AAMS is so easy to use and you can also play around with it to do your own tweaks.
Save Reference and use for other projects of audio, saves time and irritations.
AAMS Good sound copyer! Results everytime good.

I was searching a pro audio forum one day trying to find audio software. They recommended a piece of software that i never heard of called AAMS ? I tried the freeware and quickly purchased it. The results are so perfectly musical! AAMS gives me the perfect sound every time. I cannot say enough about the value and quality of this software. Good work Denis!

AAMS V3 somehow understands the imperative role of quality mastering, especially for independent artists and self-producers. I recommend AAMS V3 to anyone who wants the advantage of a super professional, quality sound. And if you want to be in control this is the software package for you!

I did buy the full version for Batch Mastering and creating own references.
The user references when you take some time to inverst in adjusting, will save time later on.
With a self created reference in AAMS, we re-use our sound on several tracks or even whole collections of tracks.
AAMS V3 rocks!

I am a proud user of AAMS V3 since 2015.
I was years on using AAMS V2 with good results.
Now in AAMS V3 i can tweak the reference and creating my own sound!
I did that and now i don't need outside the box thinking anymore.
I just use the reference i made and re-use it.
This works so well, saves me so much time.
AAMS V3 does all mastering for me, and it's really cool!

  • Greatest & soo fine & easy use over for me, i have too many offers to create my first song with new tracks to be good & adding a lot of track.
    Worked the bone with AAMS and got it fast and loud and very good sound quality. Amazed of this technical software that does it all for me.
    Imports most formats and now batch functions to just wait and out comes the full albums mastered! You don't have this ? You are behind in audioland!

I like to add to AAMS satisfied customer list!
Always had quality, professional job from AAMS.
Thoroughly professional mastering job very quickly (working to a tight deadline).
I really cannot recommend highly enough.
Spent a fair amount of time searching for a reputable mastering service that wasn’t going to break the bank.
I was a little fearful about making the wrong decision, but as soon as try AAMS, I calmed down.
I have played the AAMS masters of my album through both on ‘Quiet Mode’ and with the volume 'Cranked Up'.
I need to move on to sorting out the ‘Reference Duplication Process’ and hope that proves to be as painless as AAMS Mastering allready is.
Either way AAMS sounds awesome, i really cannot recommend this software highly enough.

I downloaded it last night after not knowing a thing about it. All I can say is "wow"- kinda. It is really cool to see what it figures out, but I'm reluctant to commit to any tool that my ears aren't surgically attached to. That- and I have a really good relationship with a very, very good mastering engineer and I can't see that changing. BUT- very cool tool. I like it and will probably use it from time to time. But how good is this program at making tracks translate to a variety of different types of speaker systems.. Or giving a particular style of music impact and vibe..
It might be a good tool, but can't work every time.. You need your mixes also to be rightfully done.. Before inputting it!

I am proud to have provided artists and record companies with affordable AAMS mastering software for the past decade (+plus). I understand the budgetary limitations facing the independent musician, because i have been one for more than 28 years. AAMS processing chain has been carefully chosen through trial and error. AAMS V3 is the result of many years collaboration between me, other mastering engineers, producers and AAMS users. And i compiled a versatile and precise arsenal of automatic tools that allow you to sculpt great sounding records from any source with a few single button clicks. AAMS is here to deliver the best sounding mastering software possible for every one, and give you that chance.

I only messed with one song since getting the key code, so I don't have much to report yet, except that I'm glad I bought the license. Thank you for creating this thread, Mike. I would have never discovered AAMS by myself. The reference file I used was in the Rock folder. It had 1990-2015 in the title. Admittedly, I didn't audition many reference files, so I'm sure there are more suitable ones for my music. I like how you can create your own. I made one from a Soundgarden song I really like the sound of, and used it on one of mine. Very cool program. There are so many things you can do with AAMS. I haven't even scratched the surface!

Words from Author

Words from the Author of AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System

The programming of AAMS Started in mid-2004.
At which time I had done enough manual mastering to see that some aspects could be automated.
At first the AAMS V0.5 Beta program was only creating suggestions for EQ, Multi-Band Compression and Loudness.
This information was only displayed in charts and text, documents and could be used to set up external equipment like plugins or outboard gear.
I could listen each time AAMS calculated suggestions and confirm that it really did speed up the mastering process.
AAMS V1.0 was released on 01/01/2005 and soon a user base was established.
The information back from users confirmed that the suggestions where quite good and helped most users very well.
So for AAMS V1.5 I had to speed up the programs calculations, after some heavy DSP-EQ coding and reprogramming was done.
AAMS V1.5 was released with its own internal Player and DSP-EQ.
The DSP-EQ had a natural sound and worked correctly for most users, so the programming for DSP-Compressor and DSP-Loudness could
continue.

Now days AAMS V3 has got its own completed internal Mastering Rig! With the combination of DSP-EQ, DSP-Compressor, DSP-Loudness.
You can complete a quality mastering job within AAMS with ease and way less effort than doing things manually.
Including the user can now create, analyze and adjust and save the Reference Spectrum Preset as needed, therefore creating your own sound.
The AAMS V3 database is updated and renewed, so many users will find what they need in our software.
I have a good understanding of mastering and AAMS contains those ideas, with the main goal to provide easyness and quality.
AAMS users also have a lot to say and have good ideas, so if you have something to add your ideas will be listened to.
I do hope you have as much fun as me using the AAMS Program.
We do make a lot of work making AAMS a good and steady mastering alternative and I know AAMS can make a good sounding master.

Music production in my country is tough.
High Quality is needed for low prices.
The amount of hours in the studio or even at an home studio is money spend.
AAMS is a timesaver, does a fairly good job and is fast easy.
Get more time into mixing then mastering, AAMS does the mastering 4Y!
I am very satisfied in how AAMS shows results and the main thing is quality sound.
A+

It's wonderful!!!
I was able to master a 50-track album in one sitting (lots of short pieces).
And I used my own reference file too, to get the exact results I wanted.
Thank you for creating such a useful piece of software. It saved the day!!!

I was new last time and searched a tool to get my music collection sound better.
I have old music, new music, everything sounds ok, but i have recorded from tapes and tracks to digital.
I use MP3 as a main format for my collection.
Somehow i found the website AAMS on the net, read the manual a bit.
The batch mastering function i have put some bad MP3's in.
What AAMS creates of them is allready way better and returns the mastered MP3 straight.
Ok takes some waiting time, but on the side of improving sound it works pretty well.
I do think on Commercial music, but on my collection of commercial music where it sounds bad.
AAMS can improve the sound of MP3 and is worthfull tool.

Very cool! I just tried it on a file that I did when I hardly knew what I was doing. Always felt the tune was a good idea but needed a "little something." Worked fine. Guess I'll have to listen to both again in various environments. I'm not experienced enuf to know if I could do better?
Thanks for bringing this AAMS to me.

The Stingers (Rock)

We have tried the following comparison with AAMS V3 and our own mastering attempts. Our own mastering attempts where good for just a few tracks. But when we listened to all songs tracks of our album, we got lost in the sound differences! It was almost impossible to get all our tracks of the album sound good, loud and together, with our own mastering. Then we passed our whole album trough AAMS V3, just with the simplest Rock Reference. We have listened to our whole album passed through AAMS V3 like 10 times, we were so surprised by the way better sound, and the coherence of all tracks is much better! It is so hard to do this!
Thanks!

Simply put, mastering is the process of preparing and organizing your music for mass distribution.
Mastering is both an artistic and a technical process so in order to understand it, you need to examine it from both perspectives.
From an artistic viewpoint, there are usually a number of things that can be done to improve the sound quality of a recording.
When I say "improve", what I really mean is that the audio is being modified in order to make sure it translates well in the outside world.
I never have borders to do so, i use everything and test all for better.
I tested AAMS before and now tested AAMS V3 again. I use AAMS for all kinds of purposes, mixing and mastering wise.
This is one of those tools that is too good to be true, but when you use it (like me), you will use it again and again.
The sonic details AAMS can improve on music is outstanding and one of it's kind, i never found software alike this.
A one of a kind troubleshooter and buddy! Surely i will recommend this, Denis!

I allways had a problem mixing and mastering my tracks.
Maybe i did have no knoledge enough but hard to learn to get a good sound.
Listening to best commercial tracks, my mix and masters where rubbish anyway.
I use AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System for 2 years now and i have learned so much.
I read the Basic Mixing I,II and III (Resources on the site) and have implemented that.
Also i cannot explain here what i have learned, but looking at analysis in AAMS can be helpfull on the mix i am busy.
Frequencies correcting in the mix returning is my thing.
Ok that takes a bit more time, i do not do one button mastering in AAMS.
My tracks and music have improved to the fact that my friends and my band say it is commercial ok.
Before that never happened, AAMS is the best software for this.
Mix and Learn, Master and Learn, improve.
Finally the end master with reference preset, allways comes out perfect this way.
I recommend to anyone! Even the disbelievers, try it its free!
