Master Match

Postby jimmyjames75 » Sun May 19, 2019 11:08 pm

Trying to find really detailed info on this thing, and there just is not any. I own Master Match. And I think it is a pretty amazing tool. The manual says to use it last in the chain. Though I have found this to work most of the time unless I am using the "Inflator". Then that goes behind Master Match.

There is a brickwall limiter built in master match. Is there any tech specs on the the settings for the limiter and compression on this thing?

Do you guys use a compressor and limiter AND master match after that? Or you folks dumping the their limiter? Are guys dropping the compressor as well when mastering with master match?

The Level matching works on a % out of 100. After pressing the "Match" button. Is the volume suppose to be identical to the source? And what happens under the hood when we increase that volume? If MM (master match) set the volume to 75%, if we increase it to 85%, what happens?

is there anyway to tweak any of the settings for compression under the hood on this thing?


TLDR; If you use Master Match, do you drop your compressor and limiter when mastering? Do you always use it last in chain? Is there any tricks for Spectral and Level matching?

I use the Stealth Limiter before it with no issues and I raise the volume level on MM to get the level up where Iwant it.

Do you not like the limiter in MM? Or just prefer Stealth Limiter? From what I can tell, MM has a built in brick wall, and it is set to 0.03 db. And that is fine. I don't like to go higher than that anyway.

I wonder if I used MM, and backed off the volume so the limiter in it was not clipping any notes at all. Then used a brick wall that I can adjust better?

I am enjoying the T-Racks stuff for mastering and using a few of the tools. This MM is a really cool tool! The best I have tried for EQ matching. Just the volume/limiter thing is weird to me.

I wonder if 50% volume or 0% volume will bypass the limiter in MM all together??????

It seems to me the limiter in the MM isn’t enough....the Stealth is VERY transparent and I don’t feel the MM is.....I like to use it as the final eq tweaker. My workflow goes from LMC to Stealth to M.

Now if you use reference tracks mastered by Lurssen Mastering in Master Match in this workflow, will the world fold in upon itself?? :) Lurssenception

i really like this idea. I am going to try this next. I don't own the Stealth Limiter, but I have a Limiter that I do fancy. This might be the secret for me using the MM tool.
I do have the T-Racks Brickwall limiter. I might try that as well.
