Grand Finale is a multi effect audio processing application designed for finalizing complete mixes, stems, voice overs, buses and/or individual audio tracks. The plug-in offers several modules in a pre-routed configuration. Each module has parameters to alter, and most modules offer a set of algorithms to select. These features come together to make Grand Finale a powerful tool for quickly finalizing a track, bus or mix.
Import audio from iTunes, AudioShare, or extract from a video in the camera roll. Audio can also be imported by using the “Open In..” option in any other app that can export audio.
Use the playback controls to start and stop playing, and alter the module knobs/options to change how the audio is processed. When satisfied with the result, tap Export to render and save the finalized audio file.

Main bus processing
• High Pass filter
• Multiband Compressor

Said about Grand Finale:
“The magic behind this plugin is the compressor on the bottom portion, the stereo processor and the incredible EQ section. The bass and treble EQ (in default mode) is the best I've heard by far in a plugin.“ - Robbie Soukiasyan (Skrillex, Tiesto, Usher and more..)
“...and Grand Finale is a genuinely impressive processor for not only the master output, but also mix busses and even individual tracks…” - Computer Music Magazine (CM254)
“Overall, we are impressed by Grand Finale. The plug-in is well thought out and has a very modern, sleek user interface that doesn’t compromise on intuitiveness, metering, or other relevant information and features. Such things help with standing out in the crowded mastering/finalization plug-ins market.” - Gearnews.com

Ratings and Reviews
Works well but....
The audio processing engine is great and having never done too much mastering type stuff, it’s been both fun and a learning experience playing around with the different modules and seeing how much polish I can add to my tracks, and the answer is: quite a bit! Obviously it won’t fix a terrible mix, but it will get a lot more mileage out of a fairly decent one. The interface is dead simple to navigate and what’s great is most of the modules have different algorithms to choose from that affect how they sound so there’s lots to play with and many many combos experiment with.
The downside and why I gave it only 3 stars is there still seems to be some bugs affecting the exporting of the audio and the project saving system is so vague I’m not really sure what is being saved and I’ve already managed to overwrite a project I didn’t intend to.
Sounds great. No problems for me importing/exporting.
This finalizer sounds great and works fine for me. I've had no problems importing/exporting with AudioShare. Lots of settings available to get just the right sound I'm looking for.
Some things I'd like to see in future updates: a loop sound file option so I don't have to keep pressing play button again when tweaking. And a global bypass button to tun off/on everything at once. I also would like either a brighter GUI scheme or bigger controls. Hard to see everything without perfect eyes in the perfect room setting. I mix in the car with headphones sometimes, and some things are hard to see as is. If those options are there already I haven't noticed them....
Great app, I'm glad to have it. Thanks for making it.
Master bus of bus insert?
In the description you put that this is amazing when you put on the master channel or even any other bus insert but surprise! You don’t support AUV3 or even IAA, How are we supposed to do all that?
What is more, I can’t even choose integrated option for LUFS metering.
