Loudness wars article remixed

In January this year I wrote an article for the Guardian on the CD loudness wars – the tendency for today’s CDs (and digital downloads) to be mastered for maximum perceived volume at the expense of dynamic range. It’s a subject of continuing interest. Now I see that someone has created a YouTube video which includes several of the quotes I got for the piece, combined with others from around the Net and including most of an earlier YouTube video on the same subject. Great stuff.

  1. Your campaign has my blessing, if only because my daughter has an iPod and I wonder what all this overmixed stuff must be doing to her hearing.

    I tend to listen to mostly jazz and classical nowadays, and I wonder if this trend will drive people to listen to this kind of stuff, if only because it has contrasts.
