The Loudness Petition Group, which consists of members Eelco Grimm (Grimm Audio and HKU University of the Arts Utrecht), Bob Katz (Digital Domain), Matt Mayfield (Matt Mayfield Music) and Ian Shepherd (Mastering Media), is on a mission to cuts the legs and logic out from under the excessive use of dynamic compression in our music. Their proposal and petition aims to get streaming services to apply “loudness normalization” by default (the loudness level as defined the Audio Engineering Society recommendations), thus rendering all streaming music equal in terms of volume level. Check out that video for a nice illustration of the problem.
