IK Multimedia has announced the Lurssen Mastering Console, a totally new mastering tool developed in collaboration with multi-Grammy Award winning world-renowned mastering engineer Gavin Lurssen, Reuben Cohen and the team at Lurssen Mastering in Los Angeles, CA.
Designed to be an effortless mastering tool for musicians and producers of all skill levels, it faithfully digitally recreates the unique “whole is greater than its parts” approach used in the studio.
It provides a top of the line mastering processor chain with parameters that can be recalled as 20 different “Styles” that have been created by Gavin, Reuben and the team to reflect the settings they’ve developed in their decades of combined experience mastering hip-hop, rock, pop, Americana, country and more.
Now, with Lurssen Mastering Console, musicians can make great sounding masters both at home and on the go when a trip to Lurssen Mastering just isn’t in the budget.
