Feel like we're in very good shape. The overall level of the track is a little under for this kind of stuff now.
This is going to be a long discussion which we can't have because it's just me here, so I can't have a discussion with myself. I would look crazy to you all.
[music] Essence baby won't you be my muse correct me when the law said times i be confused don't care what people say don't worry about their views cause you in love with me and i'm so in love with you you in love with me and i'm so in love with you [music]
If I mix this it would probably be about 10 dbs louder.
Because i know that not harry because he's a Puremix member so he understands the quality of dynamics however most other people, especially music that's really high velocity like this.
RnB and hip-hop tracks they go out quick and everything is about like high impact and so when you send your track to an A&R and you're not in the room or to some music supervisor or to someone, and you're not in the room and your track feels softer than the other track then people get really scared, that the music is not as good so that's what led to this stupid loudness war thing however.
It is true that if you play a track softer than the track before it, then the human brain is by default gonna you know not like it as much which is why we have level matching on Spotify, and title and Youtube, and hopefully soon Apple music too.
And so that in this case if you think of it as a if this were if our head hired me to mix this, i would send it to him.
But I would send him to him on Mixup and so what I would do is I would target Spotify level.
And I would put it on Mixup and I would put his demo on Mixup.
And then he would listen and listen in this, control environment where everything is level at -14 so that he could see because I saw Spotify from at -14 then he could see the true sound of his wrath versus my mix without being distracted by the level differences. and so if i wanted to do that here for example i would go to the loudest place the chorus.

I have a lot of headroom, and i don't know how dynamic his mix is, but there's also the problem of broadcast we give ourselves headroom so that we don't blow you out the water but so, i'm going to take say i'm going to take it up three so i'm going to take it down 3 dbs on the output and 3 db's up on the input so that you can hear the difference.
[music] Baby won't you be my muse [music]
Probably do another three. The reason why I'm compensating so that you don't fall off your chairs.
[music] For essence baby won't you be my muse correct me when the law be confused , don't care what people say, don't worry about their views cause you in love with me and i'm so in love with you. Your essence baby won't you be my muse correct me when the law said. [music]
So to reach this dynamic range which you read here in the true line.
[music] For essence baby won't you be my muse correct me when. [music]
It’s still pretty quiet 12 dbs and now I can adjust so i'm at where.
[music] Essence baby won't you be my muse correct me [music]
I'm about 4 dbs on this now i can adjust here put it -3.
This is going to sound louder to you, just because I raised this fader that's just a regular fader.
[music] for essence baby won't you be my muse correct me when the law says times i be confused don't care what people say don't worry about their views cause you in love with me and i'm so in love with you you in love with me and i'm so in love with you you in love with me and i'm so in love with you you in love with me and i'm so in love with you don't care about what they say don't [music]
So as you can see on a Decibel super meter my full dynamic range of that chorus is about 11 true line. And that's good, that's really it's nice i mean for if you listen to beatles rec it's going to be 14 or 16 but design the beatles this is something that's supposed to have that thing and it's supposed to be a little more in your face.
In the real world outside, broadcast, Puremix learning this probably would clock at -8, and that's where stuff would start to not sound as good, but since we're in between friends i can show you how that does so just to re for those of you who lost what just happened, basically i was working, out of a wide open dynamic range.
End i raised at the end. I would do this actually as i go along but at the end i raised the gain on my limiter.
So that i can limit my dynamic range i'm not yet, looking for my target level limit my dynamic range is something that fits within the target level of Spotify or title or whatever.
And then with the output I decided to hit more or less where a Spotify would be now if I wanted to. I could jack the levels up. I could have the output at 0 my new ears.
[music] For essence baby won't you be my muse correct me when a law says times i be confused don't care what people say don’t [music]
Most RnB or hip-hop these days is delivered at levels like this man you use.
[music] For essence you in love with me and i'm so in love with you you're in love [music]
So it starts doing some things that we recognize the sound of, and then some things that I'm not necessarily a fan of.
So it depends on what you want to do and where this is headed for, if this is headed for pitch that's why you put it because you know if you can't beat them join them however if you have a choice and it's your aesthetic decision that you want to offer to the world you could choose wherever you want to release your record.
Knowing that Spotify is going to bring it down in this case Spotify is going to bring it down 7 dbs or 6 dbs, depending on what the average is we haven't played the whole song.
And that's you know you basically have either you can have your record that sounds like this, and the level is going to be here or you can have your record that sounds like this.
But for you to be able to get the deal that's going to get you a huge promotion budget so that people pay attention to your music on Spotify.
People tend to deliver the music here, but then it gets brought down is it stupid oh yeah, but it's our stupid so we enjoy it.
So, I think at this point I'm gonna bring it back down to something a little more you know.
