Point Blank – DIY Mastering – Loud, Bright and Balanced Tracks with Free Plugins

In Point Blank’s latest weekly spot they explore how to create loud, bright and balanced tracks with an array of free plugins…

Many modern producers face a dilemma. You’ve heard it time and time again from DJs and producers alike to test you tracks in the club, not just for the mix but the arrangement and crowd reaction, but how can you get your track to the sound and level of the other tracks in your mix without paying for them to be mastered? But you don’t want to master a track over and over again every time you make a change and want to try it out.


Or if you’ve done a quick edit on the way to a gig and want to play it that night, you don’t have time to wait for it to be done professionally. So what’s the solution? How can you get the loudness you need with some basic plugins in your DAW? Our latest Friday Forum Live was dedicated to this exact topic and over almost 60 minutes, we showed you how to get your tracks loud, bright and balanced so they feel at home alongside the other tracks in your sets, or if you want to give away a free download or submit a remix for a competition.
