  • YouTube is now equalizing loudness

    A cynic might say they're turning things down to leave head room to blast their commercials... But overall it's nice to see the loudness wars ending.

    Congress supposedly passed a law a few years ago that mandated that commercials run their audio at the same level as the programs they're interrupting, but I don't know that they're actually complying with that... or if it would apply to an internet based streaming service like YouTube.

      I guess as long as Congress or the real powers that be don't mandate some kind of chip implantation in guitar amplifiers that impose their will upon us...We B Awright huh?

        As long as there's enough signal to crank on playback it doesn't matter right?

          What it will really help with is one song blasting then the next one barely audible. Everything will be -14 LUFS, give or take a dB or 2.

            Don't even have to be a cynic... just an audio engineer. Or just a listener. I've had some ear ringing moments with earbuds when commercials come first. I wish they would start complying with that rule.
