I was playing around with a solution called “LANDR”, where they master your songs for you, automatically. I’m still learning as I go, with this recording, and mastering is another part of the puzzle I don’t (and may never) have a handle on.
Still – I wasn’t overly impressed with what I heard. Don’t get me wrong – it sounded nice, all things considered. But my remastered version wasn’t far off, and might even be a bit better – softer anway. I think the issues with the song stem from recording first, mixing second. Meaning I need to improve my skills in those areas. THEN, I can work on mastering.
BUT – since I was experimenting, I thought I’d use one of my fav songs from my last record. It turned out slightly better than the original – if nothing else, it’s a bit louder. But I think my voice in particular sounds a bit less “harsh”, especially when compared to that of Abasa’s Asake, who has a voice like BUTTER, I tell you… I always thought mine sounded a bit like nails on a chalkboard, when put right next to his – and I don’t typically hate my voice. So – this master is a bitter softer, and I “think” better. May just be me.
So – it’s FREE, as usual. And if you enjoy, that pleases me. And I will stick to doing my own masters for now. 🙂
