“I always have a few plug-ins on my mastering bus in Cubase,” says Zedd, “one of them being LVC-Audio’s ClipShifter. I feel that limiters cut your transients far too much, and especially in my music it’s not necessary to limit too much. So I use ClipShifter, which handles transients that go over zero better than your DAW. It can handle anything from 6-12 dB over zero. The signal then goes into the iZotope’s Ozone, in which I use a preset that gives me all the highs I need, with stereo widening. It also adds a bit of compression and maximising. At the very end I’ll then add a limiter, like the AOM Invisible Limiter or the FabFilter Pro-L, just for a little more volume."more
