How will making my music loud affect its quality?

How will making my music loud affect its quality?

For the past 20-30 years, albums have seemed to get louder. This trend is sometimes referred to as “The Loudness War.”

Some people seem to feel that the louder their record sounds, the better it is. This is a trend that we hope to help reverse. It is surprising how little understanding there is of the compromises that have to be made in order to make a recording louder. Unfortunately, there is no “11”on the knob.

That said, if having a loud album is important to you, we will do our best to get the album to the level you desire with the least amount of negative consequences. We have a lot of experience mastering both loud and dynamic albums and we will work with you to get the sound that you desire. We will do our best to educate you about the pros and cons of making your album loud, but we will not stand in the way of your creative vision.
