Available for download, Lurssen Mastering Console from IK Multimedia is mastering software that can be used in standalone applications, on your Mac or Windows computer, or within iOS devices. It's capable of handling 88.2 and 96 kHz signals, while its processors have been modeled on the hardware utilized at the Grammy Award-Winning studios of Gavin Lurssen; as such, the software offers a simplified user experience with much in the way of signal manipulation going on behind the GUI.
Its basic ethos is this: when mastering, Gavin Lurssen uses a set series of hardware modules determined by the genre of the material. Likewise, the modules available in the Lurssen Mastering Console change depending on the preset style you choose to work from. A hip-hop setting might put the limiter in a different chain position than the pop setting, for example, and each individual processor is interdependent—touch one knob, and everything else is as affected. Whichever preset you choose, you are always given control over input drive, a five-band EQ, a push setting (which juices the inter-relationship between all modules at once), as well as full automation over peak level.
One of the most interesting facets of the Lurssen Mastering Console is the ability to go between computer platforms and iOS devices. In conjunction with the mobile app, you can now do more than listen to your master in the car between mastering sessions—you can actually tweak your master in the vehicle (not while driving, of course), and take the resulting mix back to your studio in order to see if the results translate to all the speakers therein.
