    I think this drawing sucks ass, has been posted months ago a few times before. And honestly, for ppl who live in an appartment who cant actually put their music loud, the whole loudness shit is great. Thats my opinion.

    Nah, the shotgun needs to be pointing at the label. Doubt its the engineer's choice to mix so hot

    Shotgun should be pointing at the band as they're usually like "yeah make it as loud as the last XXXX record man"

    On a serious note, I don't believe the loudness war will end until we have a new widespread standard for audio that has loudness compensation built into the file/player. Then we can focus on making the best sounding/most punchy master possible and not worry about loudness.

    So, what he's saying is that people in apartments can't have their music loud, so it's good that a lot of music these days is loud. wat

    Just trying to say, that whole loudness thingie sorta replaced the loudness button for me, wich you find on a lot of music devices. I even dont own a hi-fi anymore, rip all my cd's to my pc and listen 90% trough my logitech pc speakers. All my old cd's (90's deathmetal) sounds like shit on them, the newer stuff, wich all mastered loud sounds great on them on low volume.
    I didnt wanted to cause drama, but its a shitty drawing. The drawing moans like shit. Posted so many times before. I hear ppl moaning about loudness and los of dynamics, but 80% of most mixes in the rmm section (it doesnt say they are mastered) are fucking loud.

    I got three stereos, a boom box and a car stereo...can't find a single loudness button on any of them.

    However many volume knobs were found...

    There's a difference between 'not loud' and having dynamics. It's possible to have a fairly loud master that retains it's dynamics.

    :lol:
    must be shitty to live in an appartment that is built of paper



    I guess the drawing is about loud mixing, right?
    But mixing too hot ≠ loudness war.

    That has been a feature of iTunes/iPods for years (maybe even always, not sure). It's called sound check.
