loudness wars 2019

Recommended Posts

That's why most of the music I listen to is vinyl from 70's, 80's or today's music that is well chosen (mastered). Low dynamic range music just ends up sounding like 'sound' to me.

Whilst I agreee with what is said above about loudness “pushed to 11” on many new pop songs, and that it destroys music

 

for non critical listening and streamed music in day an office many people I work with are accustomed to a constant sound level. They often have the opposite issue of too quite and too loud with well recorded music

 

But to be far there exists a number of equalisation techniques within hardware and software such as Sonos to overcome some of this via equalisation at least between songs if not within songs.

 

also I believe radio stations have always had the ability to reprocess audio to reduce the dynamic range (I think I am correct here?)

Yes.   To ensure that the loudness stays consistent track to track.
