2011 will go down in history as the year when ITU-R BS.1770-2 was introduced, and the sample peak measurement got retired. The old measurement is responsible for the ruining of 15 years of music heritage at the source, while the new one takes away the loudness advantage squashed productions had over dynamic content. Picking up where the panel left last year, you can expect an updated tour de force in listening examples, theory, and discussions. Find out how the changing tide will influence you when heard from a perceptual, a mixing, a mastering, and a consumer perspective. From Bach to Beyoncé, Monty to Matrix, headphone to HD playback.
