    Listen with your ears, not your eyes.

    There are dynamics with changing RMS value, it's just different than changing peak value.
    Changing peak value is easier to "see" as a waveform. Changing RMS is easier to "hear", but takes experience.

    Find the best balance of all kinds of volume dynamics, not to mention frequency, panning, and phase dynamics. And you'll have a rocking master track.


    Also, to be fair comparing waveforms they should be cut to the same TIME. A longer song compared to a shorter song will appear to be more "compressed" and "scrunched" because there will be less blank space drawn between oscillations.

    The real problem here is that both of you spend enough time at HCAF to be involved in lengthy discussions there...

    Apologize.

    That thread really is epic.

    But I agree with Jeff. Most of the sausage over there are major tools.

    Porcupine Tree's "My Ashes" is not a good example here, it's a mellow ballad, without any distorted guitar

    Oh, they do use distorted guitars quite a bit. Check out songs like Strip the Soul, Wedding Nails, The Creator Has A Mastertape, Piano Lessons, Signify, Not Beautiful Anymore. They feature distorted guitars quite prominently. And I have a feeling the next PT album will be quite heavy, since Steve's gotten into black metal recently.

    Edit:
    Oh and I just noticed you said "mellow ballad", not "mellow band" :lol:

    That last drop in the Avril Lavigne song must be the silent break before the last chorus hits in :lol:

    I'm curious about Master Passion Greed (the 'heavy' one) and the single Bye Bye Beautiful.

    Also... anyone else get unbelievably annoyed at the song Wish I Had An Angel because of the fucking trance drums in there?
