LANDR’s digital mastering software can now upload straight to SoundCloud so that users can perfect their mix and send it straight to their profile.
Here at RouteNote we know full well how good LANDR‘s cloud based mastering software works. Last September we also partnered with LANDR so that RouteNote users have the option to get their tracks digitally mastered upon upload.
Now SoundCloud are partnered with LANDR and they even have their own mastering format from LANDR. ‘Optimized for SoundCloud’ is free and “will master and enhance the quality of songs streaming on the platform.” From LANDR’s website you will be able to upload songs directly to SoundCloud after mastering, or existing masters in your library.
SoundCloud’s vice president of creators product and content operations, Matt Fenby Taylor said: “Creators are at the forefront of everything we do at SoundCloud. LANDR has created a great tool which allows anyone to achieve professional quality sound. We’re excited to partner with them to bring this easy-to-use, cost-free solution to our community of creators, enabling them to enhance the music they upload to SoundCloud.”
LANDR’s software analyses tracks and alters the multi-band compression, EQ, stereo enhancement, limiting, and aural excitation to create it’s decisive best mix. There are some manual adjustments you can make yourself, so you’re not completely powerless, and LANDR’s software even analyses what genre your song is and adapts it’s mastering to the appropriate genre.
LANDR CEO Pascal Pilon said: “LANDR’s mission has always been to make pro-level sound quality accessible to everyone. SoundCloud, with its large community of music creators, is a perfect partner to help us accomplish our goal. As a SoundCloud user myself, I’m also pretty excited to have the opportunity to listen to my favourite artists consistently at their fullest potential, leveraging LANDR’s ability to make their mix richer and warmer without compromising the original feel of their creation.”
