Mastering The Mix has announced an update to its audio quality control application that helps you identify and resolve issues with your music.

Expose 2 includes a new Compare EQ and Loudness Match, Analysis Feedback, and an improved user interface.

So many tracks get distributed with technical errors such as a poor EQ balance, clipping, over-compression, phase issues, and more. With EXPOSE 2, you can deliver the best listening experience and release your music with confidence.

Expose 2 features

  • New: Compare EQ shows how your average tonal balance compares to your imported reference track. Or you can select a genre-specific preset, all of which were created using sonic profiles from commercially successful tracks. This will allow you to check that your music aligns with your sonic goals and isn’t too muddy, dull, thin, or harsh before releasing.
  • New: Loudness Match normalizes the playback of all tracks in EXPOSE using a LUFS algorithm. The human ear perceives louder music to have a fuller bass and more clarity in the high frequencies. Loudness matching removes this bias and enables you to make more informed decisions for your music.
  • New: Analysis Feedback gives you specific guidance on how to adjust your audio to get the sound you’re looking for. This helps you hit your technical goals, whether you’re aiming for a super-loud club master, or trying to optimize your music to sound great on streaming sites. (27 presets, and 5 user preset slots)
  • New: User Interface with user experience and workflow improvements.
  • Get the technical details of your track in seconds. (LUFS Integrated, Short-term, decibels true-peak, left-right heat map, phase heat map, dynamic range, loudness range)
  • When issues are detected the readouts and waveform are highlighted to show you exactly where the issue is.

Expose 2 for Windows and Mac is available at Mastering The Mix and distributor Plugin Boutique for £49 GBP / $67.50 USD. The upgrade from Expose V1 is £19 GBP / $25.99 USD.
