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.
