Can mastering death industrial/PE be done in Audacity or Wavosaur?. I would mind it sounding a little more clear.
Mine doesn't sound very "done" in concern to the quality of(it's not to do with how I've made the songs but the fact that they go straight from mixer to my PC).

Suggestion:

iZotope + for instance REAPER.

what about references of great people doing mastering

Thomas Garrison of Control
Jérôme Nougaillon of Propergol
Simon Balestrazzi of TAC

I cannot recall the name of the guy who used to run Old Lady Driver who is working with many friends and does an excellent job.

recently I have been working a lot with Yvan Battaglia of LCHM, he's beejn doing several great work at the moment (like giving new life to old MB works). https://www.facebook.com/yvan.battaglia.multimediadesign?fref=browse_search

Mastering anything can be done in any software that can edit sound with basic effects like eq, compression etc etc so long as one knows how to use them. Reaper is definitely a better free way to start learning tho, Audacity is not ideal, intended more for editing wavs rather than non-destructive mixing and effects/mastering

I am not familiar with the workflow of producing an album for vinyl and have read various things to care about like mono'ing the low frequencies, to be careful of excessive sibilance, etc. Yet, my knowledge and funds being limited, it is a bit like doing hazardous changes blindly.
So, firstly, is it something done/checked by the company who is cutting the vinyl ? And who ever used a de-esser on sibilance? Could sibilance really be a problem when pressing a LP (I read that this might cause unwanted distortion) ?

Reviving this old in favor of creating a new one...

Currently i'm investigating how to master my tracks (using Logic Pro at the moment) using the stock Logic plugins. I've been reading stuff and watching tutorials. I don't know a lot about this, and i'm just trying stuff on the go by what i read. Currently using a Multimeter to check levels, fiddling with EQ, .. But i was interested to hear what kind of basic mastering flows people here have ? Basic stuff you always need to check, how to export/bounce projects in the best way.. ?

I am sort of at the same level as you.

I recorded this "jam" over the weekend.
https://soundcloud.com/soloman-tump/wounded-at-work/s-D27ZI

I monitor my recordings live as I go along and try to keep the EQ sweet with my mixer.  If possible I try not to adjust anything afterwards (I only use Audacity these days for tweaking / clipping / adjusting files, it is free and is fairly flexible / robust).

That being said, I did run the above file through an EQ filter and a compressor in Audacity.  I should probably upload the original recording for comparison purposes if anyone is remotely interested.

I currently record from vinyl through a loop pedal as well as my noise chain - therefore balancing the signals is pretty key to getting it sounding right.  A work in progress, as I am sure you can hear.

i use logic pro for almost 12/13 years....
My mastering chain (it s not always the same, but this is my most used when I use logic bundle)
Adaptive limiter
Multipressor / compressor
Linear eq
Stereo spreader
And a tape delay setted to 0 on feedback and 0 on delay, all way wet to give a tape saturator effect.

Possibly not mentioned, but something I find absolutely crucial:
The one thing I always have at the end of mastering chain (and/or mixbus) is a plugin for spectrum analysis, phase correlation and peak+RMS volume metering.
Good practice is to import "reference" tracks and compare graphs of overall frequency spectrum, mean volume etc.
I've used Voxengo Span since forever. Simple and free.

Other than that it's anything from stock Reaper plugins to summing mixer & hardware EQ, compression and saturation.
There's always a limiter plugin as well, set to -0.1 peak to avoid clipping, often not doing any volume boost.
