    Excellent advice. I use wavelab to tweak, but will probably get his software, looks simple and powerful. Thanks Warren and Ian.

    But at the end, the song competes not only at the radio stations (where everything will be squashed up to 0 db), but also on soundcloud, itunes etc. So the final product has to be on the same loudness level as the reference track. In my opinion, the comparison of 2 songs as decribed in the video makes sense in the mixdown phase.

      It doesn’t matter if your music is louder or softer than 0 dB as the LUFS (the new loudness unit) level algorithm will increase the level of your music if it’s too quiet or reduce it if its too loud! So EVERYONE is as the same loudness. It’s all about DYNAMICS now. Its the start of the end of the loudness wars. Ian’s website explains it better than me!

    There is a new loudness unit which the broadcasting industry is adopting and has become law in the USA (I believe) and is now starting to roll out to online platforms like soundcloud iTunes YouTube, etc and TV networks around the world. It no longer uses the RMS value. It doesn’t matter if your music is louder or softer as the LUFS (the loudness unit) level algorithm will increase the level of your music if it’s too quiet or reduce it if its too loud! So EVERYONE is on a level playing field as it were. It’s all about DYNAMICS now. Its the start of the end of the loudness wars. Ian’s website explains it better than me!

      Agree with the dynamics!
