  • Automatic Reference Mastering Website
    1 project | | 9 Mar 2022
    I made an automatic mastering website ( using the open source software Matchering (all credit to them). I have no users for the meantime, so I'd be happy to get some feedback ! How it works: 1 - You upload your song 2 - You chose a reference for mastering from the catalog / or you upload your own 3 - That's it ! Download the result. The matchering algorithm tries to match frequency response, RMS, peak amplitude and stereo width. The goal is not to replace professional mastering, but rather to offer a quick way to get your demo, or home recording in the same ballpark as commercial songs. Is it free ? - The link below gives out 5000 credits to the first users to claim them - After that, I plan on offering 2-3 free masters per week. Users that need more intensive server use can purchase credits Try it out: Have a nice day,

    Re: Matchering (, here is a little more information. If I recall correctly there is a docker-ized version so you can run it locally relatively easily if you are willing to learn a couple of bash commands. I have not played with it a lot and it is separate from the DAW.
