MCompare is the ultimate reference tool for mixing and mastering allowing you to compare your audio quickly with any audio file and stages of your processing chain and saves you from loudness trickery. You will never be fooled by your own ears again!
Astonishing workflow for the essential task
Comparing your audio to a reference commercial track is essential for every mixing and mastering engineer. Of course, you can do that in your host, but the workflow is what matters here. And it cannot be any easier. Press one button and the plugin quickly crossfades between your track and whatever track you choose. Press another one to choose a different track. Or compare the sound at several different stages of your mastering chain, for example, each click a different comparison.
Don't let your ears fool you!
Louder music makes you think it sounds better. It lets you feel spectral and spatial balance incorrectly. It lets you ignore acoustic errors hidden under the loud wall of sound.
But the plugin can help you avoid that! It can automatically make the reference tracks match the loudness of your own track. With MCompare you don't need to doubt your senses anymore. If your audio sounds better, it really will be better, not just louder.
Does your master actually sound better?
How many times did you spend hours working on your project and just when you felt it's perfect, you took a break and when you listened to it later you were horrified? That's because your ears fooled you somewhere along the road.
MCompare lets you compare your master to multiple stages in your chain, the dry mix for starters. It will compensate for any latency and match the loudness, so you will really be comparing the sonic qualities of your master and your ears won't be able to deceive you! So when you start doing something wrong, you will know quickly enough, in one click to be precise.
The ultimate mastering chain with referencing
MCompare is the only plugin that lets you compare your master to the chosen reference tracks, dry mix, different stages of your mastering chain, and even different versions of your mastering chain. All in a single instance, where everything is one click away. It just cannot be any easier.
Supports VST, VST3, AU, and AAX interfaces on Windows (both 32-bit and 64-bit) & Mac (64-bit only)
MCompare supports all major hosts on both platforms. Check system requirements for information about compatibility and installation.
64-bit processing and an unlimited sampling rate (Mac Only)
MCompare provides the maximum audio quality you can get. It uses 64-bit audio processing and can handle any sampling rate. It does not make much sense to go over 192kHz, but if you think it is a good idea, the plugin can do that.
