What do you use to get your mix loud?… and would you say it makes the mix sound better? or just louder?


  1. Great podcast! I’m sad to say that I agree with you in one point related to “the war”: “The loudest one wins”, making a lot of music sound like a circle saw.

    I actually agree with you on the other points too, but that is not sad, and will keep in mind your words about being diplomatic when ranting about the loudness war. Thank you for doing this. 🙂


    1. Thanks for the comment Jostein. As I said in the podcast, “If you have to explain why your mix is softer, you’ve already lost”.

      I think it’s wise to pick your battles when it comes to mixing. If your paying client wants his mix loud, it really is your responsibility as the mixer to find a way to make it louder without making it sound too much like a circular saw…lol

      thanks again for the thoughtful comment.
