Default How to Master with LE 8?

Whats up guys, i got my songs all mixed, and bounced...i was just wondering what process i should use to master, ive never done this before.

I get that im suppose to take all the bounces and put them on one session...now what do i do in order to get the levels right...do i put a compressor on each track and up the gain...or do i just use the sliders?

Next, how do i apply the dither...do i just put it one on each mix in the master...then disable all the songs but 1 and bounce it again, with the new level and dither applied...or is there another process....i want as high of a volume as possible but im worried about clipping...hope some people here can help. thanks!

Izotope Ozone is a great buy, it does a great job of mastering IMHO and if your a novice the presets are a great starting point.

Seriously, if you don't want the plugin then read the guide, it's a real good read and very easy to follow, in particular the importance of using multi-band processing.

I currently use Izotope Ozone 4 for mixing and mastering in PT LE 8. The presets alone are killers.

I use Waves Mastering Plugins (LinEQ, LinMB, L2) for all my mastering and have never been sorry.

Although i don't have Ozone, I have heard of several people that use it for mixing. Not all aspects but perhaps the multi-band compressor or some single aspect.

It's a great set of tools..... puts a nice shine on things if there's no money for mastering.....but it's a bit too much of a cpu-hog to use for mixing, IMHO

Hi

I watched the video on Mixing Pop in Pro Tools by macprovideo.com last weekend. More than helpful. It was suggested in this discussion.
