Tell us your master chain!
« on: January 06, 2016, 04:15:17 am »
Reveal your secrets to us! Tell/Show what goes into your master channel when the time comes to master.

For me, I usually run a Fab Filter Pro Q2, and then a couple of modules in Ozone including the Imager, and the Maximizer, sometimes the Dynamic EQ, then I usually have Voxengo Span at the very end to check the levels.

L2 Limiter. I'm still deciding whether my tracks are worth proper mastering.

EQ > Tape Saturation > Limiter. I usually don't use compression during the master because I compress the mix before hand.

The Glue -> Invisible Limiter is my usual chain. OTT is sometimes fun to throw on at 5-10% wet if I need more sustain or want to make the mix sound a little more colored. I've also enjoyed using Waves NLS Bus for its drive knob to add a little saturation and cross-talk emulation, and the Slate Digital plugs sound great too (esp their Shadow Hills comp and the Focusrite Red 3 emulations).

I never EQ the master bus, recently my master bus usually looks like this:

ozone maximizer (loudness)>oxford inflater with the clipping off (for filling in harmonics very slightly)>camel phat with everything off (to bring it back to 0)>oxford limiter (for a bit of extra loudness + slightly filling in harmonics again and limiting obviously)

Do you find oxford better than any other Limiter ? Like Uad one L2-3 , Slate Digital Sonnox etc ?
