"AfterMastering" the new audio technology?!?

(1/3) > >>

thought everyone might get a kick out of this. . .

i had a client call today and ask if i could give hi-res files to him after our mastering session.  i said, 'no problem.  i can give you whatever you need.'  he then went on to tell me why he needed them.

it is this "revolutionary new process called after-mastering" that [his friend in LA] could take mastered files and make them "considerably louder without affecting the sonics, headroom or compressing the audio more."

i told him i was interested in hearing the results. . .

Ruairi O'Flaherty:
Can't find anything online about this but I met an artist at NAMM who had their cd single mastered with this process.  We took a listen in the PMC demo room and the track I heard sounded good.  It was incredibly hot but didn't seem nasty. Of course it was a good mix but I'd be curious to know what it is. I'm guessing it's a Slate style process...


Waltz Mastering:
Louder than loud... please report back on this.; )

...also curious, cause I get slightly more request to bring it down a notch over bring it up a notch.

Can things really get louder than they currently are without falling completely apart?

here's a tidbit :

AfterMaster Music Mastering

In late 2009, after four years of development, Larry and his audio engineering team, Shelly Yakus and Ari Blitz, unveiled AfterMaster, a revolutionary process for the mastering and AfterMastering of audio recordings. The proprietary (patents pending) AfterMaster hardware and software process creates a final audio master recording with a loudness, fullness and clarity unachievable through traditional mastering techniques. The first major music releases using MyStudio Masters "AfterMaster" process were Janet Jackson's "Make Me" produced by Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, and Lady Gaga's multi-platinum "Telephone."

Shelly's been around a while and has a clue, so there may be something here.  Don't know Larry.

the plot thickens :


Larry has a bit of a checkered past but here's some more on what we're interested in.  The first one reminds me of Recording Studios of America, which set up cassette tape recording studios in malls. joy...
