Bring the Lurssen Mastering Chain into Your Studio

The IK Multimedia Lurssen Mastering Console software emulates the entire mastering processing chain employed by top mastering engineers Gavin Lurssen and Reuben Cohen. As a standalone mastering solution or as a plug-in for your favorite DAW, Lurssen Mastering Console delivers realistic emulations of tube and solid-state equalizers, limiters, de-essers, and compressors. Choose from 25 mastering templates created by Lurssen and Cohen for specific musical genres, using the same workflow as they do in their mastering studio. If you've been looking for a better way to master audio in the digital realm, you definitely need to check out IK Multimedia's Lurssen Mastering Console.

IK Multimedia Lurssen Mastering Console Software at a Glance:
  • Created in collaboration with Lurssen Mastering
  • Use as a plug-in or as a standalone mastering solution
  • High-quality processing and export options
Created in collaboration with Lurssen Mastering

Lurssen Mastering has mastered for Elton John, Queens of the Stone Age, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Snoop Dogg, Bruno Mars, and many others, as well as soundtracks for Iron Man, Despicable Me, Up, and other feature films. Their approach involves setting up a pre-configured chain of processors based on the style of material they're mastering - certain controls on the processors are set to a predetermined value for that specific style and are not adjusted. You'll find this same workflow in IK Multimedia's Lurssen Mastering Console: you choose the Style template Lurssen created for that specific musical style, and you are able to tweak the exact same parameters they would be tweaking.

Use as a plug-in or as a standalone mastering solution

While it will work as a plug-in for your DAW, Lurssen Mastering Console also offers a convenient standalone solution. You can view your audio's waveform, add automation, loop audio, and quickly bypass your processing for comparisons. A pair of VU meters gives you an accurate representation of average program volume. And engineers at Sweetwater appreciate the inclusion of a Stereo/Mono switch, allowing you to quickly check phase coherence.

High-quality processing and export options

The processing in Lurssen Mastering Console occurs at 88.2kHz/96kHz resolution (depending on your source audio's resolution) for consistently high-quality results. A range of audio formats is available upon export, including AAC, FLAC, WAV, and more.

IK Multimedia Lurssen Mastering Console Features:
  • Mastering software created in collaboration with Gavin Lurssen and Reuben Cohen from Lurssen Mastering
  • Choose from 25 Style templates designed by Lurssen to re-create their exact mastering methods
  • Works as a standalone application or as a plug-in for your DAW
  • Input Drive control allows you to push the processing chain harder
  • Shape your master with a 5-band EQ with fixed frequencies
  • PUSH control allows for subtle enhancements via uniform EQ adjustment
  • Full automation capabilities
  • VU metering
Master your tracks with IK Multimedia's Lurssen Mastering Console.

Best Plugin EVER!!!

This plugin is so amazing!!! Just turn it on and you're good to go. No fuss, no muss- just super easy to use. AMAZING!!! I had an album Mastered by Reuben Cohen at Lurssen and this plugin has the same MOJO as the real mastering studio. This is the real deal folks!!!

A No-Regret Purchase

IK Multimedia has really hit a home run with the Lurssen Mastering Console, actually more like a grand slam . It's that simple. Worth every penny, an excellent stand-alone program. Lurssen and his co-pilot deserve credit for simplifying parameters that give you what you need, no extra filler needed. Plus, using this is fun and exciting...magic happens right between your ears. This plug-in will also save time in the studio,which equals Mo'Money. A full 5 Star product,so just buy it already!

I own Ozone and Slate FGX. This thing is AMAZING. It is soo easy to use. It does not fix a bad mix,(although it will make it sound less bad) but for final master it is worth 10 times the price. BUY IT NOW!!!

Sweetwater Advice

Carson McClain

I can't stop running my old tracks through IK Multimedia Lurssen Mastering Console! To be a true mastering engineer, you need to apprentice under an engineer for close to a decade, but this software lets me master with Gavin Lurssen's own mastering chain. Its minimal controls let me enhance my mixed tracks easily, and I noticed the difference immediately.
