Noise Reduction & Consistency

Mastering is the final step of audio post-production. So what is the purpose? Think of mastering as the glue, varnish and polish that optimizes playback quality on all devices from tiny iPhone speakers to massive dance club sound systems. If you are doing work for the ACX, you must know how to meet their requirements!

:D Thanks!

I would love to have someone else do my mastering, but I think that probably it would be best if I buckled down and kept learning to do it for myself. That way wherever my journey takes me, I'll have the education under my belt. But thank you very much for the generous offer; that is so very kind. I am sorry I gave way to complaining about it! (But if I change my mind, I'll let you know. ;) )

No problem at all and I complain everyday! If you save your template with Reaper, then set up your default plugins, it will make your work flow go very quickly. Set one for recording and one for mastering. Then you should not have any :scared-eek: moments.

Is the beginning of the tutorial video you posted a few days ago a setup for recording, for importing files to master, or both?

I could also potentially set up different templates for different platforms-- like one for Librivox, one for the textbook narrations, another for ACX, etc.?

Absolutely! I have one for the ACX, Podcasting and Music. I have three different types for Podcasting if I am doing an interview. Sometime I may add a different plugin some where in the chain. If I like it better, I will save it into the template. Sometimes I just need it for a single purpose, so I will not save it into the template.
