MASTER X3 is the virtual incarnation of the TC Electronic Finalizer, the standard mastering processor in the pro audio field. MASTER X expedites the mastering process by integrating several phases of mastering into a single, easy to use interface. It features multiband processing with expansion, compression and limiting separately for each band. High quality uncorrelated dithering is included as well.
The intuitive user interface features many new ideas to make the critical mastering process faster and easier. The overall processing characteristics are controlled via "Target Curves" that simplify the handling by providing a global processing style for all bands in all modules.The interaction between the bands can be fine tuned by applying "Target Factors" which determine the frequency focus of each processing module, significantly reducing the number of required user parameters to set this complex process up. "Soft Clipping" even provides "analog" sound whenever desired.
