Hey guys!!

Just trying to master my own stuff (I know paying for mastering is obviously preferable)

You must first login or register to see more!

 

Just wondering if anybody could give me some tips on how to make it sound 'better'

 

Cheers!!

The mix sounds really clean, and that is preferably the most important thing to make a good master.

Use a reference track, a lot of masterings plugins have this built-in their feature. But either way, try and match the dynamics, transients etc, with the reference mix, there are a lot of ways to do this, but multiband compressors, limiters, and EQ'ing is probably the best way to do this.

 

Here is also one tip, put the master in mono, and try to get the synths/instruments, etc  to sound like they would do in stereo. There are a lot of tools that can help you with that, but don't overdo it. If you're working with a lot of synth layering, simple panning can help with that. 

This is probably the simplest one https://polyversemusic.com/products/wider

And always check your mix/master on a lot of different systems (like your phone, laptop etc, P.A, car speakers etc) one of the most important things to why we need mastering is just to make the listening experience good on preferably most systems.
