"Very good Audio software for mastering."

July 20, 2012  |  By dvdvelde

 |  Version: AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System 2.1 rev 003

Pros

All in one single package for audio mastering on a computer.

Cons

Works with Windows 7 64 bits, only in compatibillity mode. Works with all other Windows versions.

Summary



Updated on Jan 15, 2013

This software is amazing, for those who understand the easyness of mastering in this way. Why spend hours of mastering time ? If this software package does a well job ? It is good and masters like a pro.

"Not Perfect, But Not Bad AT ALL!!!"

July 08, 2011  |  By deucedot

 |  Version: AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System 2.1 rev 003

Pros

Easy to use (just read the Help)... Does exactly what it's supposed to do - analyze a given track for it's audio levels, EQ frequencies, etc., then make a reference file or "template" of it for later use.

Cons

It's not perfect. But if you have an ear for music and a little patience to understand what's happening, it all works out.

Summary

At first listen, I couldn't tell the difference between my original files and the "mastered" ones. The keys to getting a good output is... 1. A Good Mix. Grandpappy always said "You can't polish a turd." This is also true for mixing and mastering. Garbage in, garbage out. Try to get all of the levels to be as even as possible without any clipping/peaking too much at all. AAMS will typically boost volume just a little bit too (varies on what reference file you feed it), but without distortion. It's actually really good at this... 2. Try to master your WAV files using similar sounding audio. Case and point - Don't try to feed AAMS a song by Metallica as a reference and then try to master a song that sounds like Musiq Soulchild. Most likely, it will not come out like you want it to.

"Best $112 I ever spent"

June 01, 2011  |  By jabuser

 |  Version: AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System 2.1 rev 003

Pros

Give it some time to analyze a CD that has dynamics, stereo field & other sonic characteristics you want, then use that reference on your own songs, the results are stunning. If you understand mastering enough to tweak the settings it's even better.

Cons

The default reference files aren't perfect so if you don't want to participate in the mastering process, or you only have 1 or 2 songs to master, then you are probably better off with the "I'll master any song for $10" services.

Summary

I bought this before the price was reduced to $65, and I still don't regret it. No problems installing it or running it. The UI is a bit weird so getting a good reference master set up takes some time, but once that's done it's pretty much 3 mouse clicks. The presets aren't that great (at least they weren't in the version I bought in 2008, they might be better now), but anyway, I definitely recommend creating your own reference master by letting it analyze some songs that have sonic characteristics (dynamics, stereo field, tone, etc.) similar to what you want your songs to sound like. I've tried a few cheap mastering services, and I can get better results myself with a multiband compressor and parametric EQ. If you only have a song or two to be mastered and you don't quite get what mastering is or what it's for, one of those services might still be your best bet. But if you do understand mastering (even if, like me, you're not particularly good at it), and you're going to be mastering more than a few songs, then AAMS can be an indispensable part of the toolkit. It takes 100% of the tedium out of the process (if you've ever used a multiband compressor but you aren't a professional mastering engineer, you probably know what I mean). First time I used it I was mixing a cheap demo for a band, asked 'em what bands they thought had killer production, they gave me a CD with the desired amount of thump and presence, I let AAMS analyze it, used that as the reference master, played them the result and they were like "demo my a**, that's a finished product". Obviously, if you're starting with a crappy mix there's only so much it can do (you can't polish a turd), but AAMS can make a good mix sound phenomenal.

"Decent, but a better option for only $10"

April 12, 2011  |  By loebpaul

 |  Version: AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System 2.1 rev 003

Pros

can't think of any

Cons

not great for the price

Summary

I found this service called http://www.InstantSongMastering.com that masters tracks for $10. I thought it was too good to be true, but it's not bad! You get to choose the genre and preview 30 sec for free - try it out

"ZERO STARS: The Postive Review Have To Be Plants"

September 02, 2010  |  By benlinus

 |  Version: AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System 2.1 rev 003

Pros

Nothing. This software has never worked, and the author of it didn't like the way I asked for help so he kept my $100 and revoked my registration, essentially stealing $100 from me.

Cons

Initially, it crashed because of "invalid registration". I kept getting new keys. Same problem. Then a new version came out addressing that issue. Software still didn't work. Then a few versions later, I download again. Crashed every time.

Summary

While trying to address the issue of why this garbage software crashed every time I used it, I gave Denise detailed info about error messages and crashing. I wasted 100 hours trying to fix this myself because he was unhelpful. When I asked for a refund, here was his response:
"Hello Brain,

You must be a stupid fool not to read the email i send you 3x !
AAMS convertor is INSIDE AAMS! On THE TOOLS TAB!
But hey i better remove you from my registration list and NOT
answer your emails , because you snear everytime backwards and
not even reading it anyway.

Have fun and we will not reply on your emails anymore.

We will delete you from our user list according to License Agreement rules..."

So not only did he take my $100, but he insulted me, and then revoked my access to SOFTWARE THAT I BOUGHT.
No big deal because it doesn't work anyway.

"Valuation from MR.CRITIC"

Pros

THE BEST AUDIO MASTERING,THE BEST PROJECT RESULTS,THERE BATCH MASTERING FEATURES,CONVERTER.Machines designed BASIC TECHNIQUES TO THE PROFESSIONAL AUDIO PROCESSING,AUDIO PROBLEMS UNDERSTANDING, MAKE MORE REAL MUSIC,LOUD, WANTED audiophile, THANK'S ...

Cons

difficult to use, a long time process, there is no batch converter feature, the old view, there is no burn features, no dsp jazz and acoustic.

Summary

I have the experience of listening to a very real and alive but it is difficult to express in words, sounds that came out in the form of a natural, clear and loud ...AAMS may be able to do experiments more natural audio, clear and loud.

"The files would not extract."

September 13, 2009  |  By Bear9253

 |  Version: AAMS Auto Audio Mastering System 2.1 rev 003

Pros

Can't use so no pros about it.

Cons

This is of no use if I cannot extract the files and then load the program on my system.

Summary

I guess I will have to try and visit the manufacturer's web site to see if there is a downloadable option that works since this one doesn't seem to load on my Vista.
