Hi!

I’ll surely try it but what would be your tips and tricks using Streams to master an album?

Thanx!

Mastering is the one thing I'd rather do in DAW than in Euro tbh...

Streams is surprisingly good at compression and limiting. I’d use a light hand on the compression, especially the make up gain. I mostly used Streams as a limiter, and that was effective at finishing off a lot of modular recordings.

there are a tonne of free VST's which would do a heck of a better job than an MI module :/ Eurorack anything - at any price is not what you use to master anything.

Try VST's by:

*Variety of Sound (the Baxter EQ is a brilliant clinical eq, as well as the Fairchild 670 style comp, Ferric TDS (tape machine emulation))
*Stillwell Audio (not free - but the plugins nag you to pay, technically you can use them as long as you like - but the license is pennies..
Event Horizon is an utterly brilliant limiter. I love the clipper. i use it on everything i do.
