    I would put a good lufs meter as the very Last plug in on your master track , and check it close for "overs" that are sneaking thru. I had the same problem with 1 song that seemed to get destroyed when streaming. Later ... mark

    Anyone use this website? I've been playing around with it. To fall within the guidelines set by this website they seem to want pretty low non-compressed Masters.

    I saw that somewhere in a video or blog I think.

    It seems to be looking at LUFS and for some sites, the peak level as well. I finish my fooling around by getting pretty close to -14.0dB LUFS, but I'm a little looser with peaks, just somewhere between -1.0 and -0.5. Everything has some compression, and I don't think the site cares about that, i.e., dynamic range. This is one song of a friend and I practicing an Eric Taylor song in "finished" form (well, an MP3 version from my iTunes). Seems pretty close to what they are looking for.

    Cool, that's right on. They say to shoot for an even score on YouTube.

    I guess I meant LUFS because as soon as I hit my mix with any master limiting, the LUFS goes to around -10, which draws a penalty.

    If you are going to submit mixes to streaming sites, that will be too high from everything I've read and seen. You can make a CD like that, and maybe it's still appropriate for some genres, but if you can, a separate master would probably be a good idea for iTunes, et al.

    I don't know what those disk replicator companies do that also include submissions to streaming sites, i.e., do they 1) accept separate masters from you, 2) just submit your CD master and let the site have its way with your tracks, 3) normalize your tracks for the sites, 4) ???

    We really need to listen to it? Not sure how we can otherwise.
