If this isn't an RB alt, I think your doppelganger used to post here.

Re: is it possible to master any mp3?

To answer your question, no, I don't think you can "master" an MP3 file. You'd want to use a .WAV file.

TBH this has more of a JayMSay feel than RB. RB actually kinda came around out of his newbness by the time he disappeared...

Re: is it possible to master any mp3?

You technically could get an MP3 mastered, it's just not ideal. Judging by your track, though, nothing is going to replace structure and a good mix. It's what we're all striving for, and it's definitely not easy.

Re: is it possible to master any mp3?

uh you can totally master an mp3. some have made millions from it. this slips past plebeian ears on a constant basis and cashes millions.

but if you do it you should be very ashamed of yourself. also this round of drinks is on you. good work.

Re: is it possible to master any mp3?

you can enchant mp3 file by converting it to wav which adds a wider frequency spectrum because it adds more kbps. But you need to to this gradually. start with 128kbps then convert to 192kbps, then do 256kpbs and later move to 320kpbs. With highest possible mp3 quality you can then convert it to flac. Then do flac to wav conversion and you're good to go. It's called reverse engineering.

I do this all the time.. it's not tedious at all once you get the hang of it. You also get a really nice old school distortion if you gradually bump the volume by 3dB at every stage.
