RELEASE YOUR MUSIC WITH CONFIDENCE
How Will EXPOSE Transform Your Music Productions?
? Overview: Drop your music into EXPOSE to identify any technical issues before releasing it to the world.
⚠️ Problem Solved: So many tracks get distributed with a poor EQ balance, true peak clipping, over-compression, phase issues, and more. It takes 3 seconds to identify these issues in EXPOSE before it’s too late.
✅ Get Started: Open EXPOSE (it’s a standalone app, so you won’t need a DAW) then drag and drop your music into it. Select the preset based on your distribution method (streaming, club, CD, etc). The analysis feedback gives you specific feedback on how to resolve the issues and optimize your music for release within your DAW.
? Highlight 1: Helps you hit your technical goals, whether you’re aiming for a super-loud club master, or trying to optimize your music to sound great on streaming sites.
? Highlight 2: See how the average tonal balance of your song compares to your reference track, or our genre-specific presets. All of which were created using sonic profiles from commercially successful tracks.
HOW TO USE EXPOSE IN 6 SIMPLE STEPS
1. Load A Track
Open the application and drag your audio onto the dashboard.
2. Select A Preset
Select where your audio will be heard at the top, such as Spotify, Youtube, CD etc. Then select your tonal balance profile by loading a reference track or choosing from the presets.
The four sections give you detailed information about the loudness, peaks, stereo/phase information, and dynamic range of your audio. You can create a loop to see the readings of specific sections of your song.
4. Identify Issues
If EXPOSE detects that issues would arise, the section icon will turn red. Click on the section icon to isolate the issues on the waveform to see the exact location of the issues. The analysis feedback will give you specific guidance to help you hit your technical goals, whether you’re aiming for a super-loud master, or trying to optimize your music to sound great on streaming sites.
5. Check Your Tonal Balance
Compare EQ shows how your average tonal balance compares to your imported reference track. Or you can select a genre-specific preset, all of which were created using sonic profiles from commercially successful tracks. Anything within ±3dB represents a very similar tonal balance. Anything greater than ±6dB would represent a considerable difference in tonal balance and you may wish to make adjustments.
6. Loudness Match and Playback
You can click the play icon or hit the spacebar to preview the audio. Click Loudness Match to normalize all audio to the same perceived volume for unbiased comparison.
What’s New In EXPOSE 2?
- Analysis Feedback gives you specific guidance on how to adjust your audio to get the sound you’re looking for. This helps you hit your technical goals, whether you’re aiming for a super-loud club master, or trying to optimize your music to sound great on streaming sites.
- Compare EQ shows how your average tonal balance compares to your imported reference track. Or you can select a genre-specific preset, all of which were created using sonic profiles from commercially successful tracks. This will allow you to check that your music aligns with your sonic goals and isn’t too muddy, dull, thin, or harsh before releasing.
- Loudness Match normalizes the playback of all tracks in EXPOSE using a LUFS algorithm. The human ear perceives louder music to have a fuller bass and more clarity in the high frequencies. Loudness matching removes this bias and enables you to make more informed decisions for your music.
- A new approach to triggering warnings. in EXPOSE 1, you would get a warning if your music was clipping or too loud for the selected preset. With EXPOSE 2, each preset has a range of accepted readings depending on the selected preset (i.e. -14 lufs for Spotify ±2dB). This means you’ll hit the loudness sweet spot relating to where your music will be heard (club, vinyl, Spotify, etc) and you’ll avoid releasing a track that’s too loud or too quiet.
- Brand new user interface.
