AAMS (Auto Audio Mastering System)

WWW.CURIOZA.COM / WWW.SINED.NL

I gave it a try and i must admit its really not bad for an auto mastering system.

You load your rendered wave file, select a reference file (mastering preset) and it takes about 5 - 10 minutes for the whole process to complete. Give you a logfile afterwards about what actions where taken.

Here is example of logfile :

=======================================

Personally i tried some presets (The normal master preset seems to be very nice).

I think this is a good program for those who don’t know how to master manually like a studio expert, but still want to have decent sound in the final stages.

Of course many believe that mastering should be done manually and not automatic.
