How to Master a Track in FL STUDIO | Mastering Tutorial

Hey Guys. Welcome back to my new video. In this video I have shown you how to Master a song in Fl Studio. It covers all the steps to master any track. I have shown all the procedures and rules to follow before starting the main master process. From this video you will be able to judge a song and be able to fix it.

Mastering is a very creative process. There are no golden numbers for mastering. I have tried my best to explain you what to do in each case. Mastering can also be said as to increase the volume of a track commercially. It is a very important and the final step in audio production before you release your track for the whole world to listen. Always use a very good headphone or studio monitors to master a song.

I am not professional Mastering Engineer, but for the context of this video I have shared with you what I generally do to Master a Song.

You might notice that there was no headroom when I imported the mix. Generally before exporting the mix the volume of the Master Fader is lowered to upto -4 to -5 dB to create headroom. But it can also be done afterwards with Fruity Balance.

Plugins I used in the video:
1. iZotope Ozone 5 Advance
2. Fabfilter Pro Q2
3. FabFilter Pro L
4. PSP Vintage warmer 2

You can also use OTT if you want

Also Mastering ain’t going to change the song completely. It does not do any magic. Your mix should sound perfect before you Master because then only you will be happy with your finished product.

  1. Heey! Some tips for next time you master:
    Leave more headroom before mastering, your mix is smashed.
    You didn't cut out below 20-30 hz and everything above 20k (it's industry standard for playing on bigger audio systems).
    You didn't use any references.
    And making everything below 200hz completely mono is pretty questional, rather put about 100-150hz mono.
    Keep it up dude!

  2. Your drop part is too loud to do mastering.
    Better to use pro L2 to save cpu and it's better.
    Your track it's so boomy and the mix isn't so good. First as you said try to fix your mix.
    You used imager and fab filter to mix the stereo. Noo don't do it again used imager or fab nit both

    Now the mix part

    I can't hear your sub bass so clean it (low cut the 20Hz and high cut the 100 and turn it mono) and boost it a little bit more.

    Your mid bass it's fine but try to boost around 200-250hz 2-3db

    Volume down the chords and boost the 500hz a little bit

    Mix your samples.

    Cut off the 30hz of the kick in your drop and make it mono (FULL mono) (doesn't need to use imager try to use the mixer stereo-mono shaper)

    Cut with transient processor all the attack of rides and drop clap

    Low cut around 1000-3000hz any white noise you have (uplifters,white noise,downlifters, anything with white noise)

    And yea i hope to help you 😊

  3. You are doing it great! Just one tip for everyone. Mastering is the hardest thing while producing music.For the best mastering, your mix should sound the best. And you should have at least basic ADSR theory to do proper mastering! So the best way to master your own is trial and error depending on your ears. Sometimes listening your songs for 2-3 days continuosly can decieve your ears. So try mastering your track after a week or two. It will make your ears fresh and you will be able to master it the best way possible…
