I'm Paul, one of the creators of http://www.InstantSongMastering.com. I want to thank Chuck for posting a link to our site on this forum, and I want to thank everyone for your valuable comments and feedback. We understand that our instant mastering service works better for some tracks than others; and we have had many satisfied customers. We just launched the service a few months ago, and we are constantly working to make it better.

We welcome any suggestions you might have for improving the service. I have set up a special email address for this purpose:

Thank You!


Hi Paul, did you read my last post?


I'll be frank. It looks to me like your web service, at this point in time, is either broken and/or a scam.

When I tested it, it didn't actually do any deterministic processing whatsoever, it only introduced some harmonic distortion, both on the "master" and on the file that was misleadingly labelled "before", suggesting that this is down to bad DSP rather than intention.

Then, there's the issue of the "before" sample presented for comparison being attenuated by 2 dB, meaning the (otherwise unaltered) "master" will sound exactly 2dB more impressive - in your player only.


Do you understand the implications from those two observations? Is there an explanation for this?

It would be cool if you could add extras ala cart.

How can it master a track without looking at a spectrum analyzer? Rolling Eyes

Good luck with your service.

All i can say is, people who are willing to put their music through that javascript, i have no desire to work with.

Andreas Lassak, a member and co-admin at my forum, did a before and after test of the services results, complete with level and spectrum analysis. Very interesting. His results are posted here:

Same thing I found when I tried the "service".

The really interesting thing is though, that while the "after" sample doesn't change (besides added distortion), the "before" sample presented on their page for direct comparison is attenuated by 2 dB...

That's the brilliance of the scam.
