Mastering VSTi's and Programs.

I’ve got a couple songs finished that would sound alot better with a little bit of mastering. Problem is that I have no idea which programs are usefull. There’s a studio near by that charged 100$CAN a hour, but that is a little rich for my blood right now. So if anyone could point out some usefull programs that would be appreciated.

The two main products that spring to mind are Izotope’s Ozone plugin and T-Racks. Ozone is a Direct X plugin while T-Racks is a standalone program. I have some experience with Ozone and can say that it really does improve your sound greatly. You still need a lot of experience to do the same job as the studio down the street but even with the presets that come with the program you can make your song sound a lot brighter and louder:…ne/directx.html
