Good idea  Smiley

The effects are arranged in the order they were applied.  The settings I used to approximate the tonal and dynamic qualities of my reference recordings are pictured in each screenshot.
(the last effect is a "fast look-ahead limiter", although no title appears on the screenshot)

Hey Oren,

Do I have this right then, that you determine these EQ settings by looking at the reference waveform?

BTW..I have heard it said a lot of times that you should have a reference track to listen to.

Your approach of looking at the waveform is a new insight for me and I think it's going to make a big difference.

Thanks a lot for sharing this.    wOO

Cool

With Audacity, the EQ settings are determined by ear, because there is no frequency waveform available, like you have in "Audition". The waveform we see in Audacity is amplitude.

Loading the reference tracks into Audacity along with the track being mastered allows me to quickly and conveniently listen back and forth for comparison, while tweaking the EQ.

Yes, a combination of looking at the waveform and listening to your monitors yields the most accurate results. I think the ear should be the final judge, however.

Thanks for prompting me to clarify.... Wink

I find looking at an audacity waveform is very revealing. You see the dynamics very clearly, whether you are at or past the clipping threshold, and how balanced the overall level is left-right.
