LANDR – Should Your Master Your Own Mixes


LANDR Mastering

Landr has been recognized as a leader in the home recording industry. As an innovative service, it makes it easier than ever to create, record, edit, and manage your audio recordings. The new version, Landr has been completely redesigned and is even more user-friendly than before. The new software is especially helpful if you are just getting started with recording audio, since it comes with an extensive manual that walks you through all the steps. With Landr, the process of recording a live performance becomes as easy as it would be with an acoustic guitar. They have 3 sign up entry levels, learn more about the pricing on their website.

The reason is that when the original mix was used, there are many flaws that were introduced when the two mixes were compared side by side. With the Landr-mastered version, these flaws are totally eradicated, making for a truly stellar product that is worth all the money that has been spent on it.

There was a moment when I was listening to a track from the album called Border I will Meet You at the Border. It was amazing because all the instruments sounded like they were part of one composition instead of two separate ones. The drums were pounding and the guitars were sounding like they were right there next to the lead vocalist. All in all, the overall sound quality of the album was truly inspired. After listening to it over, I really wanted to get my hands on the LANDR software.

However, like any good entrepreneur, I quickly discovered that it wasn’t going to be as easy as I thought. Upon further digging into the land situation, I discovered that there were actually two different companies that made the mix. These two companies, Capitol Records and Rawlings Records, were not included in the mastering process that was used to create the mix. As an unhappy consumer, I immediately knew that this was going to be a problem, but how did I know?

Well, I didn’t really know anything about how the original mix came about, but my buddy kept insisting that it was different somehow. The problem with his story was that he didn’t exactly explain how it was different. The way he told it, though, made me a bit curious. So, I flipped back to the original mix to see what was going on.

The first thing that I noticed was that the first verse (which is probably the best part of the song) sounded a little bit different than the second verse. It also sounded a little bit different than the bridge. So, I took a closer to listen and listened to both the verses and the bridge. Both versions of the song made me a little bit excited. It looks like someone had spent some extra time when recording the stereo image and slowed it down a little bit.

After listening to the whole song through, it looks like someone may have mixed some beats from a scratching machine and cut some high frequencies in the music. That’s a lot of potential energy that didn’t make it onto the final masters. But, it looks like those problems were resolved by making the flip back feature. Those little extra tweaks sound like they may have changed everything.

At this point, you are probably asking yourself, “Is it worth buying a Landr soundboard?” Well, like anything else in life, if something works for you, then you should buy it. If it doesn’t, then don’t even think about it. This is not to say that a good soundboard won’t help you make your demo’s sound better. It will, but it will not be worth the extra money that most professional mixers pay. So, in short, if you are going to buy a Landr soundboard, then consider the cost of mastering it to be the same as buying the original mix that you would buy in a store for a few dollars more.
