LUFS meters for LOUDNESS !
I wanted to elaborate a little more on how I use meters for loudness. There’s 3 screen shots here, each showing the similarities between 3 songs at their LOUDEST points •
Drake’s “In My Feelings”
Pink’s- “Raise Your Glass” (still my favorite loudness ref)
I circled the 3 things I look for while I’m mastering and checking for loudness. Look how the 3 are all consistent with each other. I’ll post a blog soon explaining more about what each means, but in the most simplest terms these are the levels that I try to get my masters to when I have to bump up volume.
TRacks’ TR5 and @nugenaudio’s VisLM2 are the two meters I use most to make sure my masters are hitting similar points to these 3 examples. Always remember that every song is different, these are just reference points!! I tend to buy new major releases frequently and analyze them in this way so my projects are consistent with the trends in the industry. •
