Another important innovation is the changes to the BandLab Mastering automatic mastering service. The developers note that the algorithms for the service were developed in collaboration with the Grammy winners Mike Tucci and Justus West. The updated mastering function works up to 10 times faster in comparison with competing services, according to BandLab.
Four presets are available to users for work: Universal, Fire, Clarity, Tape. Each preset has a different processing applied and produces different final results.
According to BandLab Technologies CEO Myung Ru Kwok, the emergence and development of the mastering service was a response to the proliferation and popularization of online music mastering tools like LANDR and eMastered , and the company aimed to provide users with the simplest possible use case.
In addition to this, BandLab 10.0 offers TikTok integration and Mix Editor improvements. According to developer representatives, users have been asking to add TikTok integration to the program for several months, so the company has implemented the opportunity first.
