    Hello

    With Logic 8 you have the possibility to add "Master" on the stereo output of your piece.

    Is it necesary to apply this on a piece using Mir Pro 3D ?

    Hi Cyril,

    FYI - Logic Pro 8 dates back to 2007-2009. It would be helpful to be precise with your versioning in the forum so that people know exactly which version you are referring to.

    Logic Pro 10.7.9 ➤ 10.8

  • Mastering is the separate end stage of moving a 'mixed' piece (which is where and when you've probably used MIR Pro, to a release piece - HOWEVER - Mastering does not have any real rules.

    What might be right for a Red Book CD is different to what one might do for Vinyl and different again for what one might do for Spotify.

    BUT ...... If I had a piece that would benefit from some room ambience at the Mastering stage I might send it to MIR PRO ... then use all my usual Mastering plugins .. including Apple's new Mastering section ... ... as I said there are no real rules. I've been mastering stuff for other people since the early 1990's and it's always differnt.

    If it sounds beter ..... keep it.

    But check it next morning to be sure

  • Hi Louis

    Thanks for your answer.

    I gave a trial yesterday of Logic's Master plug-in

    The result is very disapointing, you lose all the brightness of the VSL orchestra ; it sounds much better without !

    May be I dont know how to twicle the parameters as dont have any idea of what is mastering🤯

  • A good rule is this:

    If you made it sound worse ... read the manual.


  • I did a trial with just launching the "Master"

    May be with MIR you do not need it ?
