Last night I spent more time using Har-Bal and then finished up with the mastering chain you suggested. First of all, Har-Bal is just amazing! I can’t believe how much of a difference it makes. I thought my mix was decent, but Har-Bal makes it possible to dramatically improve what I originally thought sounded decent. And I know I’ve only scratched the surface. I suspect the more time I spend with it, the easier it will be to get the mix just the way it should sound. The two songs I worked on last night sound better than anything I’ve done without professional mastering. I’m not a mastering engineer and don’t think Bob Ludwig has anything to worry about, but Har-Bal makes listening to my own mix very listenable. Congratulations on creating a fantastic program. I know I said this before, but I will enthusiastically tell everyone I know who does any recording about Har-Bal. It’s so rare that a program does what it says it will do. Har-Bal does!
