The Bass Geek - Words about Music, Circuitry, and New Orleans

Dynamic Range Day

The Loudness War rages on, even as folks calm down a bit and realize that music isn't meant to be overly squashed and forced through an aural firehose at the listener (yes, I realize quality mastering folks have said this for years, but even iTunes is getting in on it now). Would you rather have a conversation with a friend, or would you rather that friend shout everything at you at the same frustratingly loud volume? Even if you don't speak the language of audio geeks, the distinction should be clear. And thus, I ask you to show support for tomorrow's Dynamic Range Day - making the world a better place for its tender little albums. Support your right to use the volume control as you see fit, and let your music breathe.
