Mastering session. song; The Epilogue artist; Crosses

Quick video so folks can see the studio, and get a chance to hear the subtle difference mastering can make to an already great song and mix.

  1. i see the Massive Passive at the 12k.. What model Chandler is that? I dont
    know which model of the weiss your using to make eqs cuts and thats
    definately not a digital limiter.. Clipping some A/D converters maybe as
    well? ???

  2. You’ve still got the goods old friend. Miss you man. You’ll be hearing from
    me soon, I have a project coming your way.

  3. Awesome work sir! Love it! And I can’t say enough about your room and those
    Focals!!! Wow! I had a couple of questions about the order of the
    processors in your chain. It was great to see the order of the processes,
    but what about the actual order of the chain. The first move (after
    listening of course) was the MMP sweep for clarity. I see it was insert 2
    of the Backbone. Interesting it looked like only one side was being
    modified, so I can only assume either you did the other side as well, or
    you were working in Mid-Side and this was a Mid only move. Then there was a
    little dynamic work, just a touch. Was the compressor before or after the
    MMP in the chain? Next was your mono check, and that’s where you used the
    Weiss to clean up the lows and low mids in the center. Then you smoothed
    the edges of the sides, also with the Weiss. I only saw the Backbone and
    didn’t see a digital switcher (i.e. Crookwood), so where is the Weiss in
    the chain? Is it between the DAW and the DAC before you even hit the
    Backbone? Or are you using a separate AD/DA to put it in the Backbone?
    Lastly, you use your custom limiter. I assume its between your Backbone and
    your Lavry AD, since it seemed like you pushed the outputs of the Backbone
    into limiter. Just some questions on workflow. I also know that things work
    differently for different sets, but just looking at this example, I was
    just curious about the actual signal flow as a function of your signal
    processing. Thanks again for sharing the experience!

  4. great video! I finally understand what mastering is! Plus, Crosses is one
    of my favorite bands <3 did you master their whole stuff or was that just
    an example?

  5. did you do a -5db shelf out of the mono signal …… of out of the
    side…. why did the low end not go away … or was it set to dynamic
    ……. or did the limiting bring back up the low end …. explain please
    …. finally what rms did you shoot for …..and finally finall …low cut
    or low shelf ??? and why do people use linear phase eq which I have tried
    but it causes hugh pre ringing

    Lots of questions there but you look like you are willing to interact so

  6. Its interesting looking at the meters on the DAC and ADC. Especially right
    around 2:30 in the video towards the completion of the processing. Looking
    at the DAC and ADC, it looks like a huge difference between Left and Right
    Channels, although listening everything sounds really balanced from a
    stereo perspective when you listen. So it would logically seem as though
    the complete system is in Mid Side somehow, but being decoded back to
    stereo somehow, maybe after capture. This is really interesting because it
    would almost seem that the analog chain is being fed Mid Side information
    and the program is also being captured in Mid Side. The Manley Backbone is
    set to stereo and unity all the way across. Eric, can you help me figure
    out what’s going on there? If its a technique you’ve worked out and are
    reluctant to share, I’m cool. Just something I observed.

  7. Very tasteful, interesting, informative, musical. It’s really a fantastic
    demonstration of approaching any given piece of material what it
    subjectively needs to sound more like… music. To enhance the experience
    of listening on a psychological level. I always watch this video because of
    the creative flow that you dive into with your process. There’s no strict
    and annoying textbook or super-surgical approach. You listen, react,
    respond, just like having a wholesome conversation with another human
    being. Your technique is a true performance in itself, in the most musical,
    transparent, and subtle way possible. It is simply something you can only
    really feel, and feelings are everything my friend. I will throw in- huge
    fan of Crosses and all of Chino’s projects! Thanks for this video.
