Los Angeles, CA (June 15, 2016)—IK Multimedia has released Lurssen Mastering Console, an iPhone app enabling musicians to master their mixes with a model of the console and settings used by the engineers at Lurssen Mastering in L.A.
Lurssen Mastering Console is said to be a unique approach to audio mastering that incorporates the Lurssen “whole is greater than the sum of its parts” philosophy by recreating not only the gear chain used but the interactions and influence the processors have on other gear in the chain during the mastering process. Lurssen Mastering Console is available as a universal iPhone/iPad app and it is also available separately for Mac/PC.
Lurssen Mastering Console features a processor chain that's built to reproduce the order, gear, hookups and settings used by the team at Lurssen Mastering. “Styles” presets created by Gavin Lurssen, Reuben Cohen and the team at Lurssen Mastering define the gear chain and provide the settings for various genres of music.
Lurssen Mastering Console for iPhone/iPad is a free universal app that operates in demo mode (with no audio export features and noise bursts during playback). Users can unlock full functionality via in-app purchase. Play/Process enables unrestricted playback, monitoring and processing, 48 kHz maximum sample rate of the DSP processing and export of compressed formats such as AAC and Ogg. HD Engine enables unrestricted playback, processing and monitoring at 88.2/96 kHz for DSP and export, selectable dithering and export of uncompressed formats such as WAV and Flac (and also requires Play/Process mode to be enabled).
Lurssen Mastering Console for Mac/PC is available separately for a limited-time introductory price from the IK online store and select authorized retailers.
