Reference by Mastering The Mix?

Post by LamarPecorino » Sun Dec 30, 2018 5:24 am

Has anyone used Reference by Mastering The Mix? It is a low-cost alternative to Izotope Tonal Balance Control.
Onward and upward!

I haven't used them, but it reminds me somewhat of the spectrum matching eq's. Here's a perspective on the izotope plugin:https://www.pro-tools-expert.com/home-p ... ol-plug-in

I'm not saying they can't be useful in analysis, just perhaps not necessarily practical and could send you going down rabbit holes you might not otherwise pursue. eqing or affecting something that is not there in the first place is next to impossible.
I'm thinking of the old mic modellers as an example. You aren't going to turn a cheap dynamic mic into a neumann. You might get there tonally, but convincingly?

Imo, it's more about what characteristics that you like about your references, and trying to choose equipment and effects that are most representative of those qualities.
