DIY Mastering shootout

DIY AI Mastering Shootout: Soothe 2 vs Gullfoss vs Intensity by Zynaptiq, along with Magnetismus 2

My last album was mastered professionally and I was happy with the results, but for this one, I wanted to take a look at a few DIY options to try and personalize things a little bit more. In this video I’ll be taking a look at and comparing a few tools that can make a finished mix sound better – whether it’s by removing harsh frequencies, fixing dynamics problems or adding character – in particular – I’ll be exploring Gullfoss by Sound Theory, Soothe 2 but OekSound, Magnetismus 2 by Tegeler and Intensity by Zynaptiq:
