Rough Landing - my intense synthwavy/acid track + mastering in NS2 tips
Hello dear Nanostudio community
Here's my latest creation, I hope you'll like it. Please share any feedback, constructive criticism,... Always valued and greatly appreciated!!
Listen to Rough Landing by Tales from Within on #SoundCloud
I also have some findings to share:
This is the first track of mine where I managed to do all the post production steps fully in Nanostudio 2. What you hear is the mixdown straight from Nanostudio, without any further mixing/mastering in any other apps. This greatly simplifies the process for me. So far, I've always had to export to Final Touch to adjust dynamics, maximize, etc. and get a decent result... No more! 😃
The very essential auv3 plugin that made that possible for me is "Bark Filter" from Virsynth.
It is at the same time a multi band compressor, filter, limiter and maximizer. I find it extremely useful and easy to use.
For a quick start, I can recommend to put it on your top main "root" group track, and use the "triple band" preset. Be sure to enable compression, limiter and auto-gain. This should provide and excellent base to start your mastering process.
