Also as a celebration of the release of Reason 10, I used 6
instances of the new Reason 10 synthesizer called 'Europa'.
Europa is a great shape shifting synthesizer so the challenge was to
use it for as many of the parts of the arrangement as possible.
In fact all the sounds in the production are Europa except for the
drums, guitars and a violin sample.
But back to Scope - now that the release MultiCOMP has replaced
three Scope plug-ins in my XITE-1D mastering setup this has freed up DSP when
all sections of the MultiCOMP (Compressor, Mid Side, Equaliser and
Filters) are in use.
The beta version of MultiCOMP only did compression - which it was
very good at across three bands. Now that the release version
gives control over tone, dynamics and stereo spread it is now a
contender for a one stop mastering processor with dynamic DSP usage.
The metering showing the output of each of the three bands is also a
very useful feature showing a spectral picture of your mix for quick
MultiCOMP is a great all round stand-alone mastering solution that
will suit many and varied studio and professional projects alike.
