Softube Weiss DS1-MK3

Has anyone played around with this plugin for mastering? Is it overhyped or really as cool as claimed? Most of my SofTube plugins are top notch, but this one comes with a pretty hefty sticker.

Well it's a bargain if you compare it to the hardware model right? Never used it though, can't help you there

Re: Softube Weiss DS1-MK3

I messed with the demo some, kinda like 'haha let me see this ridiculousness'.. but I came away really impressed. It sounds a bit different than other limiters I've heard, something very solid and pleasing about it. And loud, of course. The simplified, cheaper version they have has 'that sound' as well though.

My take was that I simply can't justify the expense, but it's probably worth the asking price. I'd take this over Ozone any day and it's not like that is so much cheaper.

Re: Softube Weiss DS1-MK3

If you have the cash you should consider a fully hardware mastering chain.

And then, have fun running EVERYTHING through it. You music, other people's music, the sound from a movie you're watching... everything. If a record you're listening could use more bass or sparklier highs, go correct that for your listening pleasure... If you're listening to a podcast with five different people using different mics and streaming at different levels, go squash and tame that shit and make it listenable... If you're listening to a war movie at 2 am with super quiet bits and super loud bomb sounds, go even that crap out so you don't wake the gf when bombs go off yet you can hear bits of whispered dialog.

My point is: invest in good processors, practice, get good and fast and confident. Become a fucking pro.


"The processor that no serious mastering engineer can do without" <<< FUCKING LOL. Shit like that cracks me up.

Re: Softube Weiss DS1-MK3

If I bought that plugin and had good reasons to buy it, I would probably run it on a second computer at maximum sampling rate, with a midi controller that is exclusively dedicated to it. Get so used to it you don't even have to look at the interface anymore.

One thing about mastering is that you want to get quick at doing it. You want results before ear fatigue kicks in. That is so so fucking absolutely key IMO.

Becoming a pro sounds a bit aspirational for me personally. But you know me, @[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]

Re: Softube Weiss DS1-MK3

Remember one thing... if you sent an average mix to ten top-paid mastering engineers, you'd get ten different-sounding files back.

You have to know what you're doing but ultimately it's about knowing what result you want to hear and being familiar, agile with the tools that get you there.

I just fucking loath their marketing BS... ''You're not serious about mastering until you get this shit.''

The truth is so much more simple and complicated all at the same time....
