Description

Lurssen Mastering Console puts you at the controls in the studio with all of the secret tools, settings and techniques of world renowned multi-GRAMMY Award winning mastering engineer Gavin Lurssen and his team. Now you can master your music on the go on your iPhone/iPad and get the professional, Grammy award-winning sound that the studio is known for. Pop, rock, hip-hop and more, Lurssen Mastering Console can help you achieve amazing mastering results when a trip to Los Angeles just isn’t in the budget. Lurssen Mastering Console is a totally unique and new approach to digital audio mastering. It's designed to help you capture the magic of the Lurssen Mastering studio’s entire mastering audio processing philosophy. Instead of giving you just a collection of individual processors and presets, Lurssen Mastering Console provides you with models of the complete mastering gear processor chain as a whole. The interactions between the individual processors have been digitally recreated which recreates the synergistic "whole is greater than the sum of its parts" sound that has earned Gavin and Lurssen Mastering multiple Grammys. With Lurssen Mastering Console, you have automatic access to a lifetime's worth of professional audio mastering experience. It helps you quickly get great sounding results thanks to its 40 pre-made "Styles" templates, which have been created and optimized by Gavin Lurssen, mastering engineer Reuben Cohen and the rest of the team. These templates reflect decades of combined mastering experience and fit a broad range of musical genres. Using Lurssen Mastering couldn't be easier: Just create a project, load a song, then select an appropriate "Style" from the drop-down menu. Take control via an Input Drive knob and a five band EQ as well as a "PUSH" knob, which lets you subtly and uniformly nudge the EQs so you can "ride" the flow of the song and add that special Lurssen "magic" to your music. You can view and automate changes to the two knobs by using the waveform display with three different automation modes. You can make adjustments to EQ settings and save those as presets for easy recall — a preset consists of a style plus your adjustments. You can also view the physical gear chain and make subtle adjustments via the Chain view. When you've finished your mastering work, you can export your song to File Sharing, SoundCloud and more in a variety of popular file formats for final distribution and delivery. With the Lurssen Mastering Console you can easily master audio with your iPhone/iPad while on the go.

  • Audio is good, but export cripples app

    Exporting goes into the iTunes shared folder, which, as far as I can tell, is inaccessible to any app on the iPhone. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’d have to connect to a laptop to access the file, which is totally pointless.
  • Love the app

    Love the app’s potential! But there’s an issue. Dear LMC software engineers, I operate your app on my Apple - 12.9-Inch iPad Pro (Latest Model) with Wi-Fi - 512GB - Space Gray Specifically, whenever I “unlock” the LINK to HORIZONTAL mode, and then proceed to adjust ONLY the left INPUT channel for balancing purposes? More often than not, the “UNLOCKED” (horizontal) position irritatingly ‘slips’ back to the “LOCK” position, causing the right channel to immediately REALIGN to my repositioned left channel level. I need to start over again. I spend far too much time tweaking gingerly until it stays, being forced to quickly save the adjusted setting. This interrupts my mastering flow far too often, thus frustrating my desire to use it more frequently. I paid the circa $75 to enjoy the full benefits, so would you please eliminate this bug within a reasonable period of time, or I have no choice but to request a full refund for what I otherwise deem to be a wonderful app in every regard. Respectfully, Eddie Burke Goldenpaw Studios Mount Joy, PA 17552

    I got the demo to hear what it could do, I was pretty excited , but I can only import songs from iTunes ? Not Dropbox or iCloud ? Am I missing something , what is the point of the demo?
  • Serves no purpose.

    Really IK, no importing songs from Dropbox? What is the point of this app? To import premastered songs from iTunes? I would have purchased it if it had any way to import wav mixes. This app is utterly useless.
  • Seems good but...

    Way to expensive when compared to other apps that do the same thing and this one needs to support more ways to export.. au audiobus etc
  • Don’t get the basic upgrade

    By BrahbertFrost
    Sounds great but the basic upgrade is not worth the $50, imo. Very little feature-wise and you can only export things into your shared iTunes library, kind of defeating the point of having a completely ITB phone mastering process. Also, in case like me you thought you could shell out $50 more sometime in the future for the full upgrade, that’s definitely not an option. Also a HUGE hard drive memory hog in a way I haven’t quite figured out where the data is being stored but if you’re rebouncing and doing several different revisions of a master then you stack up memory real real quick.
  • It's really quite good

    No doubt, it's expensive when compared to other iOS apps, but it has a sheen, a character, a sonic quality that is very pleasing while adding the loudness necessary to compete with today's music. If your mix is good, this will make it sound better and louder. It took IK about 8 months to fix a frustrating bug, but it's fixed now and the update adds two new presets, more tweakability, and even better sonic quality. Thanks, IK.
  • Meets my needs

    After using this app I can't live with out it now. It sounds great and easy to use. You can use Dropbox unlike one review said you can't, you just have to buy it before it'll work.
  • The advertisements...

    By Miles12638393
    You get interrupted with ads all the time even if you buy the app($50!). I contacted support and they said there's no way to turn off the ads. Very unprofessional and insulting to someone who spent a ridiculous amount of money for the app.
