Description

This week Sonic Academy proudly welcomes back Techno giant Kirk Degiorgio as he takes an in-depth look at Loudness and Metering when it comes to mixing and mastering our tracks.

We've all heard of the 'Loudness Wars' that can be traced back to the introduction of the compact disc, pushing the digital limit with the belief that customers preferred louder-sounding CDs. In today's world, however, producers are faced with restrictions placed on their music by different online platforms such as Spotify, YouTube, Tidal etc.

Over these 12 videos, Kirk looks at de-mystifying some of the terminology used, shedding light on what they mean, how different levels are calculated and demonstrates some of the tools on offer to help get our tracks to optimum levels without being affected by online platform restrictions.

Using real-world examples you'll not only get to grips with acronyms such as LUFS, PLR, RMS and K-Metering but after watching this detailed course, you'll also be armed with the knowledge and tools to make sure your track is getting played and heard the way you intended.

Definitely one worth checking out!
