Many musicians forgot the importance of mastering. No song should be published without professional mastering. When I say professional, I mean done right. To get the best results, you’ll give it to a professional (if you have the funds) or you could give it a go yourself. But none of the option mentioned above is as easy as Landr.
Enter MixGenius’s LANDR, a new online service that’s billed as a drag ‘n’ drop mastering solution. Simply upload a track, and it promises to automatically master it and send it back to you.
The system is based on MixGenius’s custom algorithms, which it says have been developed over eight years of university research, testing and tweaking based on feedback from trained audio experts.
LANDR is smart and getting smarter and that the system is built around an adaptive engine that ‘listens’ and reacts to music, using micro-genre detection to make subtle frame-by-frame adjustments selectively using tools like multi-band compression, EQ, stereo enhancement, limiting and aural excitation based on the unique properties of the song. Basically, the more we throw at LANDR, the better it gets.
