How to use the Riemann Techno Mastering Chain 2020
When you are satisfied with your mix, simply drag and drop this effect rack into the master channel of your Ableton Live Suite 10 (11 or higher) and make sure you don't clip (red) on the individual track channels.
Turn the "Hipass Rumble" Macro as far up as possible until it starts loosing some bass. then bring it back just a little bit. this will allow the track to have more volume and impact because the sub bass consumes a lot of unnecessary energy.
Adjust the input gain macro so that you can hear some compression.
Turn up and down the Bass, Mid and High Macros according to your taste.
Turn up or down the limiter gain macro so that the limiter cuts maximum 6db. You can see the amount it cuts in the meter indicated with yellow color.
Now listen to a mastered reference track which you like and adjust the bass, mid and high macros again to achieve a similar balance of frequencies in your prodution!
