*FL STUDIO USER MANUAL – “32-Bit floating point is the native format of FL Studio’s mix engine. Render to 32-Bit float when you intend to continue mixing or editing the file in another application (wave editor or DAW) that supports the 32-Bit float format. 32-Bit float provides more precision for audio processing and so will ensure the highest quality is preserved during post-production activities.” – Recommended by all Mastering Engineers in the World*

Я Простой не says:

Hey Asher!Thanks for video!!!But 1 question…
Why when you mastering you putting all plugs in insert 1 but not to the masater line?

A U R G H O says:

idk in premastering you just used limiter to lower the volumes, but in gain staging we do all buses(drums, vocals, Imstruments,bass) and other tracks to go low about -6db and then do bounce to audio for premaster, any differences?

Chris Dog says:

So mastering is just making a song sound louder without it distorting? I’m flipping between the “before” and “after” but boosting the “before” volume so they are the same loudness and i can’t tell a difference between the two. (listenning on KRK VXT6 with 10S sub). Not knocking the mastering, you obviously know what you are doing, i’m just trying to figure out what i should be listening for. The sound of the track itself doesn’t significantly get changed right?

auronsword says:

you are the best man !!

AfroHit Musica says:

Thank You

Dean Christensen says:

I see you exported to .wav. But how did you re-introduce the .wav file back into the new project? You didn’t explain how you did this. You just said here it is. How did it get there? THX

Titan says:

This video helped alot! thank you

Utol Music says:

Thanks man! Will try this to make my music sound better!

Melita says:

Why add a limiter and turn down the gain over just adjusting the master volume?

Shaun Hedger says:

i might have seen you on breaking bad

Herbert Santineer says:

Siddharth says:


Praiselyson Lyngskor says:

What is mastering? Let me google it??? Damn i”m out of here

tjofi says:

Do you mix in mono? And do you mix with the limiter being set to gain: -8dB, or you first mix and then set it to -8dB to prepare for mastering?

Piotr Apostel says:

I never use the word “cancer”, but making music “comercially loud” is trully cancerous for me. Besides butchering the source audio, you’re supporting the annoying yelling contest, contributing to the expectation of loud, evenly leveled music. A product.
I don’t claim that music I preffer is any superior because it’s different in this manner, but damn, this practice is just ugly for me.

The Magical Ducklings says:

Asher thanks for this video! This helped a bunch! On a side note..when you gonna get some acoustic treatment for your sweet studio?
