AAMS can make a fully automatic master from your mix-tracks and your input audio material, this wil take some instructions and processing time only, the user has got few things to do, expect waiting for the finished master comes out.

When will people realize that presets and automatic features are always inferior to listening?

A couple years ago we were having asian food, and the fortune in my cookie read:

"You will be rewarded for being a good listener"

One fortune that actually came true.

Simply put, dumb s***.

Not the tweaking of eqs and comps is counting, it is the SOUND of the eqs and comps itself. Costed me a year to find out.
You can fiddle around with your eqs and comps forever, even have golden ears, if the gear does not have THAT official sound built in you better forget it from the start. I think no one can describe this sound, but you recognize it immediately if you hear it. And for sure HarBal or whatever does not have it.

What's on the list of Official Gear? Maybe we could itemize a "list".

Might be interesting.

1. EQs
2. Compressors
3. Limiters
4. Monitors
5. Converters
6. Power Amps
7. Digital Processors
8. Analog Machines
9. DAW
10. Room

I never go for the Official Sound myself, just a sound that the client & I like.

They say the heart of Rock & Roll is still beating, which is amazing if you consider all the blow it's done over the years.

"The Internet enables pompous blowhards to interact with other pompous blowhards in a big circle jerk of pomposity." - Bill Maher

"The negative aspects of this business, not only will continue to prevail, but will continue to accelerate in madness. Conditions aren't going to get better, because the economics of rock and roll are getting closer and closer to the economics of Big Business America." - Bill Graham

Today many people want to control their recordings from beginning to end. They want to do it all. They want to do their own recording, mixing. mastering and in some cases the art work and the printing, burning and shrink wrapping of their CDs. Many people do not know how to do all of this so they buy programs or equipment to enable them to "do it all" They spend big bucks in an attempt to save money or to have the ultimate control. It is human nature. When some product comes along that promises to do it all many people are willing to lay out the cash for it. Witness the number of people that have purchased HARBAL or a T C Finalizer. It if floats their boat and gives them what they need I say let them be happy. Don't rain on their parade. They are content in their ignorance of what really matters but so be it.

The thing is.. People who buy HARBAL or any other automatic mastering thing.. I'm not so sure they wouldn't be good clients in the first place.

My clients want my view on their sound and seem to be happy with it.
