I've read some awsome things about Platinum Notes, and also, some people saying its totally bullshit.
So I came to the place where I know I can find some real producers and people who really know about mastering to tell me if it is bullshit or not.

Thanks :D

I love Mixed in Key but I never got on board with Platinum Notes, I did give it a shot with some random shit quality youtube rips of tracks that are hard to find.. It definitely made a difference but it wasn't enough for me to start running everything through it.

DJ Tech Tools actually just posted a review if you want to see what they have to say.

I see, but I believe that Wave tracks bought on Beatport aren't supposed to be editted by Platinum Notes right?

You would have to use your own judgment.. If you want Platinum Notes to even out the volume of all your tracks then go for it, but if it's a high quality wav and mastered correctly I don't see why you would need to do anything to the file.

In my opinion you'd need to be (in polite terms) pretty limited in your computer skills to need something like Platinum Notes to "fix" your music files for you.

Anyone that's skilled enough to use Live shouldn't have any trouble processing audio in Audition or Audacity to the same, or probably better, end.

Danny, I use .WAV files myself and we created Platinum Notes to work on them. The consensus is that if you have really good source files (WAVs or uncompressed AIFFs), PN will do an even better job and make the output better.

There's a saying "garbage in, garbage out", and that applies to audio processing. If you put a low-quality radio rip into Platinum Notes, it's not really going to improve it dramatically. But if you have high-res audio tracks going into PN, it has more leeway to improve them.

We posted this on http://www.platinumnotes.com, and it's true for both MP3 and WAV files:

"We bought 500 files from Beatport and ran them through Platinum Notes 4.0. Here's the result:

Corrected 744 cents of pitch
Improved dynamics for 494 out of 500 files
Adjusted volume by 1284 db total
Fixed 1,975,500 clipped peaks"


So don't hesitate to run your WAVs through it, you'll only get better output as a result.
