Two cool (and free) mastering VSTs

Upstereo,
A stereo expander. Use sparingly. Remember, a little dab will do ya.

Limiter #6
A good limiter for Mastering tracks. Start with one of the mastering presets, then tweak the controls to match the limiting you are after.

I like to plug a power strip into itself. The current loop generates infinite free electricity!
I've come up with a solution that I honestly think works out best for one of both of us.

I picked up the upsterio one. I like the eq interface and the ability to add points to trouble area. The punch and sizzle controls are nice, the wave phase shifter is way touchy. I'm going to try it in group points next song to see if I can make mono and stereo pronunciations more effective. Thanks for the heads up!

Hmmm...Not sure which one you got, Vern. There were several free ones. The Upstereo plugin only has Gain, Air and Bass controls, along with the stereo width, slider.

That one, air=sizzle. Mac version. In the EQ section at bottom, right click on a section that's heavily colored. It will add a point. Do this to either side I.e. 100 and 125 hz, and you can make a shelf. Best thing it's all right there, reduces the need for two monitors.
