Over the years, new mastering algorithms have been introduced, but with the latest incarnation of Mastering 6000 a whole new chapter has been written.
Mastering 6000 simply comes with more pristine tools under the hood than ever before.
Tailored entirely for mastering, you will not find a more complete high-end mastering solution anywhere.
Tailored for Mastering
As the name implies, Mastering 6000 is all about audio mastering.
Starting in the 80's, we pioneered the field of digital audio and later we did the same regarding perceived loudness. Since then, we have provided the pro audio and broadcast markets with state-of-the-art tools.
With Mastering 6000 we have collected all of the tools we know the world's most respected mastering engineers use with System 6000.
In other words, it has become even easier for you to find the right combination of tools for this legendary platform. We have simply gathered and pre-installed the full package so the system is ready to perform right out of the box.
Treat Your Master Track
Mastering 6000 includes the finest stereo and multichannel dynamics tools known to audio: MDX 5.1, MD 5.1, MD3 and MD4. All of these algorithms work with multiple bands of dynamics control, and as a final safety net, you also get the legendary Brickwall 2 Limiter.
EQ is also essential in mastering, so we have added EQ 5.1 and the amazing MDW Hires EQ by George Massenburg Labs.
To meet loudness delivery specs for broadcast, you also get the LM6 Loudness Radar Meter, and if you need to deliver in 5.1 surround, UnWrap HD lets you upconvert a stereo signal into a convincing 5.1 surround version.
Finally, you will get Matrix 88, Varipitch 8 and Tolbox 5.1 for your surround mastering sessions.
The hardware platform of Mastering 6000 has been tested intensively in the most demanding production environments since 1999.
You will find System 6000 in literally thousands of world-leading mastering, recording, film and post studios all over the world, and in quite a few OB vans and broadcast production studios as well.
The platform has won no less than three of the prestigious TEC Awards over the years. In 2000 for the original System 6000, in 2005 for Mastering 6000 and in 2010 for System 6000 MKII.
