This is an original article, inspired by a very recent experience with my wonderful son in law and an article I saw on The Audiophile Voice, of what’s called the Loudness Wars. Basically, a little information on why much of the music we listen to, sounds the way that it does.
I’m no recording or mastering engineer, but I do understand much of it. I also attend music concerts regularly and I still get baffled by how bad some of the shows we see, sound, at least before intermission.
More tomorrow, unless Paul posts a good one.
