Whenever we change a parameter from an eq or a compressor, we change the overall output of a track. Keeping track of these levels can be very hard, in-fact its something even the most recognized mastering engineers always keep strong focus.

We mention room acoustics, better monitors etc. as being important for a good mix but forget the fact that we also fool ourselves while adjusting fx. Same goes for creating guitar tones, how loud you hear affects your perception thats why for guitar I always recommend a backing track but we can't use that trick when mixing individual tracks.

Here are some freeware's you guys can find, keep in mind they're as good as payware stuff;

Melda plug-ins needs a quick analyze for auto-gain but you can do more aggressive shaping with them while TDR stuff to me is more about gentle approaches.

Had just a moment to review but it looks promising. Sad it's being found month after I've bought a license for Waves F6 which seems to be very efficient and user friendly...at least for me....and the price was very cheap for a Waves product....considering it was not a Black Friday sale.

No problem, you're professional and can live without auto-gain biggrin.gif I hated waves back in the day but not so much after they finally reformed themselves. I haven't tried the F6 but they're a company today making products I can blindly suggest to friends.

But do check the over stuff from TDM, I really like their Kotelnikov comp. . As for Melda, the free auto-pitch alone is worth the download wink.gif

There is a lot of great and free or at least affordable stuff out there these days. I'm not realated to waves that muhc but a few plug-ins simply work for me....it's like I do the adjustment and hear what expected. Sounds simple but it's not so obvious. X-click is a great plug-in as well. Waves prices were usually ridiculous...I guess these days they realize that these products are quite long in the market and lot's of competiion has grown. I got some plug-ins for 29 Euro each while some of these were up to 400$.

I was considering getting and API compressor by Waves but in Cubase 7.5 there is very simlar and nice wroking Vintage Compressor so I decided to save some money wink.gif

Waves is having a compressor sale this week, all Waves compressors cost $29.
That’s a steal for the API 2500 compressor. I use that quite a bit myself, but if you neeed a buss compressor for your mixing/mastering I’d reccommend the SSL G-Master Buss Compressor (also $29 this week).
