Lost Dream Mix2 by Bats Brew | Free Listening on SoundCloud

this is a mastered file. it's not very hot,
comes in about DR10, -11 LUFS.

first one i've mastered out of the 10 songs total on the upcoming album.

i'm toying with some plugs i don't normally use,
figured, why not.

maybe it's hard to judge 'mixes' with 'mastered' files,
i dont know,
ideas?

i can always post JUST the mix.

this is my 'floyd' influence showing.

a note on MASTERING,
for those who are into it...


so, when i mix, i mix into a master bus at K-18.

then, out of the master bus, i got to the MAINS, and i output there with a -2db true peak, and an RMS of about -14 LUFS.

that becomes my 'high def' file, at 24 bit/48khz.

if anyone ever wants a high def file, that's what they get.



then when i master for CD, for my own music, i target a DR of no more than 10. typically 11.

that is very conservative.

if i random poll the most recent pro cd releases,

here's what i get: DR= DYNAMIC RANGE

Santana Africa Speaks 2019 DR 04

Miley Cyrus She Is Coming [HDTracks 44.1/24] 2019 DR 05

Thom Yorke ANIMA 2019 DR 05

Weezer Weezer (teal album) 2019 DR 05

Megadeth United Abominations (2019 - Remaster) 2019 DR 05

Black Mountain Destroyer 2019 DR 05

Cardi B Invasion Of Privacy 2019 DR 05



It goes on and on and on.....ad nauseum



DR 05 seems to be the current target.



HALF the dynamic range of my masters.

half.

LOL



i think i'm ok in the loudness wars.
