One of the most common questions people ask me about my Perception plugin is “can I use it with SampleMagic’s Magic AB ?”
The short answer is Yes, in fact using Magic AB a great way to enhance what’s already possible with Perception, if you like to work with reference tracks – or to add extra functionality to Magic AB, which doesn’t have Perception’s loudness-matching capabilities.
This video shows you how I like to use Magic AB with Perception for even more power and flexibility when you’re mastering, to help you find the loudness ‘sweet spot’ for your music, and avoid the ‘loudness deception’.
It also answers two other common questions along the way – “are Perception and Magic AB the same ?” (No) and “if I have one, do I need the other ?” (It depends !)
I hope you find it useful, and I strongly recommend you give Magic AB a try – even if you aren’t a Perception user !
