Law in America, recommended and implemented in EU etc, Youtube, Spotify, iTunes etc are already “down-normalizing” tracks that are recorded “too hot”, ie, RMS >8dBFS at peaking around 0dBFS… This is great news! See the new standards R128 and the -23LU units here…
What are LUs? Loudness Units, read all about them R128 allowances.
So, people will need a new “Meter!”… try this: Klangfreund LUFS for a usable in so many ways meter!
That’s it. Enjoy!
