Let's prove Bob Katz right!

Bob Katz says that traditional commerical music is mixed TOO LOUD. I agree! With CC licensing, it’s possible for the artist, mix engineer, and mastering engineer to give the people not only what the radio stations want, but what consumers want. Here’s a link or two about what I mean…

um, turn the volume down.

It’s not that easy. some of us like to throw huge amounts of stuff on our playlist. this would result in tweaking the voulme every five minutes.

Besides, there’s loud in volume and there’s loud in style, although that’d probably a discussion for another forum, eh? :D

there is this thing called, replay gain, that will make all your music the same volume :D You should look into it.

well not exactly. replaygain will put all the peaks at 0 maximum, like normalizing does. but Bob is talking about extreme RMS values, which makes music sound louder. so in general the perception of loudness is caused by RMS and not by peaks.

Bob is right though, because we are getting louder and louder, there’s no longer a ‘standard’ which is simply a huge issue I guess.
