Mastering engineer Greg Calbi on the loudness wars

Depressing but illuminating video by Greg Calbi of Sterling Sound on the decline in audio quality thanks to the loudness wars, how his hand as an engineer is forced, and how music today is fatiguing in a way that it never used to be.

It’s a couple of years old but as far as I can tell nothing much has changed.
