I’ve had so many people asking me what I thought of the new automated online mastering service, that I decided I just had to check it out! LANDR offers “Professional Audio Mastering”, saying you can “Sound like a pro.

Thank you for this video as it gives us all a stronger argument for professional mastering. This song sample was hardly fair to you, as you gave LANDR a song that was mixed properly.
Instant results at a fraction of the cost of studio mastering.” But is it any good? The system uses “artificial intelligence”, according to the: MixGenius incubated and refined algorithms developed over eight years of university research, testing and tweaking based on feedback from trained audio experts. Our team is composed of music industry veterans – award winning mixing engineers, top-level DSP programmers, musicians, producers and label owners – who know exactly what the mastering process needs to deliver. All of which sounds impressive – but the bottom line is that they’re saying they can replace a bespoke, skilled process, undertaken by an experienced, empathetic engineer, with a drag-and-drop robotic algorithm. They also mention their “resident astrophysicist” several times, in reply to which I have to reply: Mastering isn’t rocket science atrosphysics But how does it sound?

In this video I compare a song I mastered myself with the results LANDR gives, including testing their different “intensity” settings (that’s “loudness”, to the rest of us). I found the results surprising, interesting, impressive, disappointing and down-right worrying! Take a listen to hear the comparison yourself, and make your own mind up whether LANDR is worth trying. And please tell me what you think in the comments! Featured song. Ian, you sure are a generous and gracious critic.

This song sample was hardly fair to you, as you gave LANDR a song that was mixed properly. As you know, there are times when it is necessary to ask the producer to go back to his mix and adjust something. How does LANDR handle that?
Since I use the same Wavelab program, I find the true peak meter to be indispensable and feel that LANDR failed by not programming this into their algorithm. This alone, makes every master unacceptable. Mastering, in my opinion, makes the song more of what it already is, meaning it’s designed to bring out ‘everything’, flaws and all. With a Mastering engineer, these flaws can be addressed and corrected in the mastering process. With LANDR, you get to hear them loud, louder or even louder.
Albert Toronto Canada • says. Busta Speeker from Bear Bones Productions across the pond in Idahodia here. I just felt compelled to tell you how much I agree with your assessment of “Robo-Mastering”. I feel that your master SMOKES even the low-intensity LANDR version, and the other two are incredibly laughable.
The difference in the kick drum was the first thing I noticed: yours has definition w/ the perfect amount of beater slap/click/whatever you wanna call it, and the low end is big and round w/o being corpulent in the least. I call that combo the “slap the wet pillow effect”. The kick in even the LANDR low-intensity version is just rotund, sloppy and distracting. Then the distortion rears its ugly, yet apparently de riguer pointy little head. I give LANDR a huge failing grade.
While the low-intensity choice is somewhat usable, it has no emotional impact, something yours has in spades (the same smiley-face EQ that ruins electric guitar tones too, mebbe?). That is precisely why a competent human is still the only option, in my opinion, also. Unfortunately, the Reverbnation punkass-types that “know everything already” are gonna flock to it, to their cookie-cutter detriment. Great job for making the differences glaringly obvious. I will save this and play it for any of my sitting-on-the-fence clients in the future.
