Mastering Suite for top audio characteristics

Professional tools for an even more professional sound. Here are some of the things you'll find in MAGIX Samplitude Music Studio: A StereoFX module, a multiband compressor, a 6-band equalizer, a limiter, and MultiMax.

6 Band Equalizer

The parametric 6-band equalizer lets you set volume for individual frequencies, giving you the freedom to play around with the sound of your song.

Multiband compressor

Produce music at a volume similar to the latest chart and radio formats. The multiband compressor splits the input signal into individual frequency bands which can then be individually manipulated in terms of compression strength.

Simple mastering: Auto Mastering

Mastering is one of the most demanding and specialized aspects of music production and requires extensive experience with the perception of sound. Auto Mastering analyses your audio material and finds the perfect sound settings for your song.

Marker Manager

The Marker Manager increases interface clarity for album production. It enables you to filter and edit a whole range of markers like track or pause markers in complex mastering projects.

Album production

Before publishing extensive mastering sessions, you can edit MP3 ID & CD text data right in the project and export all songs as individual tracks.

Sound analysis

Visual sound analysis

It's a good idea to use visual analysis tools for mixing and tidying up the frequency range or, for example, finding masked frequencies in the stereo field.

You get a vectorscope, spectroscope and spectrogram, among other tools.

Peak meter

The peak meter shows your production's peak level.

If certain values are exceeded too often, you should lower levels for the corresponding cause or lower the frequency range. This gets rid of clipping in your song.
