Unfortunately the licence fees for a Dolby encoder cost more than a full Cubase, so it is non-trivial cost-wise to even experiment. I have been looking at alternatives without much success.

I think that the most important step in mastering things yourself is to 'wear a mastering hat', so you may need some time to 'forget' what it sounds like, 'forget' what it took you to get it to that stage, and 'forget' your personal emotional investment in it. Let what the track requires to make it work dictate what is to be done with it.

Patanjali wrote:While a brickwall limiter is mainly concerned with the very maximum level, a maximiser works over an adjustable band of levels, which can dramatically alter the dynamics of a mix. Until used to what it does, you may want to do a few try-then-listen cycles, and with others if possible, so that you are happy with the results.
foolomon wrote:This is the part I've never really understood. Do you mean there's a window of frequencies to which it is applied? Or does it work with all frequencies but at different "strengths" depending on the frequency? If the former, is it fixed or does it vary based on some RMS algorithm to find the most prominent frequencies at any given time? Etc.
