Thanks. One "trick" I used, that made the sound clearer and gave a
better stereo definition, was the classic mastering with phase/
stereo inversion. It may be off topic for this list, but here's a
1. Make three clones of the stereo mix file (or three mixer busses if
you want to work directly with streaming audio).
2. Phase invert clone one, stereo swap clone tweo and send them to be
summed on a bus. If you listen only to that bus now you should hear
some crappy sounding audio with a "hole in the center" stereo.
3. Make clone three mono and send it to a second bus.
4. When listening only to these two busses, blend them and "repair"
the whole in the center with the mono bus. Also try different
compression and filtering of the two busses. Mess around with levels,
compression and filtering until the sum of the two busses (the master
output) sounds right.
I was truly amazed on how much there is to achieve from this
mastering method, speaking about "appeared sound quality" Mixes
mastered in this way can achieve a wide stereo spread while still
play back with the correct levels on a mono system. You should check
mono compatibility all through the mastering process.
