Finland (September 15, 2020)—Cloud-based automated AI mastering service CloudBounce has launched its CloudBounce desktop mastering app, allowing users to master large files without uploading or downloading as with its online subscription service.
First launched in 2015, CloudBounce has since mastered more than a million tracks and tripled its user base in the second quarter of 2020 during the pandemic. The new desktop version is available as a feature of the service’s monthly subscription fee, providing subscribers with both the existing web-based mastering and the new desktop app. Features include reference-based mastering (the app can match characteristics from a chosen tune), genre-style mastering, album-wide settings, output loudness control, export to all major file formats and more.
Users drag and drop a file, and the AI analyses each track, using machine listening, classification and various audio procession tools, including compressor, EQ, limiter and stereo imaging among others to create a master. Users can make their own tweaks, applying 10+ mastering options as well as using existing genre references (15+ genre-specific choices) or uploading reference tracks which the app will analyze before applying similar sound characteristics to the new master.
An album mastering option offered by the desktop app allows for a whole album to be uploaded with track order specified and mastering options available either individually or album-wide, with all tracks available to preview instantly. Users have control over their track output loudness levels using the loudness dial inside the app to change the LUFS level of the final master.
