Dynamic compression Hell. When you zoom in on the peaks there is clipping out the wazoo, right there in the source material where there's nothing you can do about it.


Welcome to the last phase of the loudness wars. I've posted a lot of great articles on the subject. This has been happening for decades in some form or another. But the recent trend is blaming MP3s for the noisy compression. Not true!

Anyway, here's some reading for you all:

There is obviously a limit on those graphs were things start clipping. What sets that limit? Is it the dynamic range of the CD, or the original recording gear?

Thanks, JP!

Turns out, those darn gremlins are responsible for a lot of things. . .
