#78 | The Loudness Wars

37 minutes

In part 2 of the story of mastering, we explore the consequences of the Loudness War and call out some of the worst offenders. We’ll also hear about the artists and mastering engineers who have been fighting back, and learn how modern listening habits might finally put an end to this sonic arms race.

Twenty Thousand Hertz is produced out of the studios of Defacto Sound and hosted by Dallas Taylor.
