Project Studio Expo: Loudness, Levels, and Metering

Hugh Robjohns, Technical Editor, Sound on Sound - Cambridge, UK

This seminar will cover the development and history of audio metering and discuss why traditional analog instruments are obsolete in the digital age. It will then cover digital metering and the associated problems, and contrast the concepts and practices of peak and loudness normalization. That will lead on to the aims of the ITU-R BS1770 loudness standard, its practical implementation, and then examples of how it has been implemented by a number of manufacturers and how it works in practice. There will be audio/visual examples throughout.
