Valencia, Spain (April 26, 2016)—MasteringBOX has introduced what it says is the world’s first mastering app for Android, allowing musicians and amateur producers to master their tracks using only a smartphone or tablet.
MasteringBOX is an online mastering application that can detect the dynamic and spectral characteristics of the track being mastered and apply appropriate adjustments, allowing amateur producers and independent artists alike to master their song, podcast or live recording. The MasteringBOX mastering website was launched in May 2015 and now any Android user can also access all of its features by downloading the MasteringBOX app for free from Google Play.
MasteringBOX has recently made a number of improvements to its mastering engine, significantly enhancing sound quality in many different music styles due to better detection and processing, the company claims. Additionally, a whole new set of features have been introduced. Premium (PRO and Unlimited) account subscribers can use the ID3 Tag Editor to add song information—including title, artist, composer and album—and also upload and crop an image for the song’s cover art. This feature is compatible with .mp3 and .m4a formats. In addition to the web-optimized (.mp3 320 kbps) and CD quality .wav (16 bit/44.1 kHz) formats, users can now obtain a mobile-optimized (.m4a 128 kbps) format master.
All users can download their masters in .mp3 and .m4a formats for free while a premium subscription is required for .wav format masters. Meanwhile, there is also a new pay-per-track option. Occasional users can now order an individual master in .wav format; there is no need to subscribe to a premium account for this purpose.
The MasteringBOX app will run on any smartphone or tablet running Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) or higher. It is available in both English and Spanish.
