Mastering The Mix has released version 1.1.0 of Reference, an audio plugin that allows you to A/B compare with reference tracks.

Mastering The Mix Reference

Reference gives you the tools and insights you need to get your productions sounding more like your reference tracks.

The Wave Transport allows you to create multiple loops so you can quickly compare various sections of your track to your reference.

The powerful Level Match tool allows you to instantly and accurately match the loudness of your track and your references. This is crucial for a fair comparison.

The time-saving Auto Align button identifies if you have different versions of the same song and lines them up automatically, so you can seamlessly switch between them.

The visuals in the Trinity Display show you how your frequency balance, stereo width and compression compares to your reference track. You can also solo the frequency bands allowing you to zone in on the intricate differences between your mix and your references.
