Essential Mastering Tools

Hands down, these are the most useful plugins for Mastering. I have probably ran hundreds of songs through the L3 and the L3-16 and it delivers every time. Great sonic quality, time saving tool.

Waves L316 Bundle

The L3-16 is by far the best Maximizer/Limiter that Waves has to offer. I have them all. I'd recommend that you download a demo version of it and give it a shot. This was a very good bundle. Featuring 5 different maximizer types.

Sweetwater Advice

Matt Emick

The Waves L316 is perhaps my favorite plug-in for drum bus compression. It is a wonderful tool for mastering, and an essential tool for your toolbox.
