In this free video tutorial, with the support of our friends at Nugen Audio, Production Expert team member Marcus Huyskens demonstrates how to quickly and effectively use Nugen Audio’s MasterCheck Pro to aid in the process of creating a Spotify master from a previously rendered broadcast mix.
Quite often these days, as engineers, we are required to deliver multiple or different masters for a specific track. You may have a general purpose master that will get sent out for creating CD’s, another one specifically for using in a broadcast mix, and yet another meant for a streaming service such as Spotify or Apple Music.
Each one of these platforms can require a different deliverable spec with regards to its true peak level, and program loudness range. In addition, these masters may even possibly be ‘adjusted’ in the downstream to fit in line with a specific requirement. So needless to say - it's within our best interests to make sure we hit the target thus avoiding any unwanted surprises.
