Title: Which mastering compressor are you?
Post by: 24-96 Mastering on February 10, 2010, 10:08:00 am
In case you didn't come across it yet and have some time to waste: I made a Facebook quiz that determines which mastering compressor you are. It's scientifically proven to be 93% correct and 99% irrelevant. Have a go at http://apps.facebook.com/which-masteri-bgcfhj/

Enjoy!

lol.... that's freakin' awesome. Well done.

I'm generally not a fan of the apps on facebook.... but this was too good to pass up.

I was an API 2500.....

It says I'm a Weiss DS1. Funny, I thought I'd be analog....  Confused

It told me that I should have the Manley Vari Mu. That is the one I really would want especially since it now comes standard with the HP filter.

Error message.  It told me I'd be a good President of the United States!

Well... I'm sure I'd be a better one than the one we have!

Manley Vari-Mu.  Wonder which models are on the list for selection?
Is there a 'ride the master fader' and/or 'don't use one' option?

Thanks for the app.  Of course, now you will have requests for all types of gear.  Which patch bay are you, DI box,....etc!

Was that have or had???

At the college I worked at one of the professors said "it is the job of the new president to make the old one look good" I guess the same could be said about national politics.

The models are:

API 2500
Crane Song STC-8
Manley Vari-Mu
Pendulum OCL-2
Requisite L2M
Tube-tech SMC-2BM
Vertigo VSC-2
Weiss DS1

Plus there's a crazy distortion box fun result to cover the crazy answers too...

I've already got some more planned. "Which mastering EQ are you?" is an obvious one to do. "Which audiofile tweak product are you?" is another one I'll definitely be making (looking forward to that one...).
