not how loud you make it, it´s how you make it loud"
eigentone - analog mastering approach
fine tuning through equalization and audio level compression, eigentone´s
mastering approach is about reducing the finalizing audio process through
these steps and finishing it with a pure analog signal flow.
appogee´s AD/DA converter delivers accurate and clear audio conversion
for the following analog processing units.
one could say the handmade analog console from gernot axmann is the heart
of the eigentone studio for recording and mixing, but specifically the
preamps and particularly the filter unit are not to be underestimated within
the mastering process. the main focus of course is the manely "massive
passive" tube EQ. Just running through is improving the sound...no
better starting point to get to this indescribably natural and organic
fattness and incomparable tranparency for the final mastering with this
extraordinary warm and musical EQ. last but not least the focusrite red3. through
its discreet tube compression from the "massivo" the red3
gets excellent assistance for audio level compression. ...very helpful
with letting the red3 act for the delightful tightness without loosing
any of the dynamic diversity of the source material.
this entire mastering process would not be possible without a pair
of intriguing and precise speakers. the activ PMC aml1 monitors are the
right choice to let this workflow be an absolute audible pleasure.
