Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Why can't we just (peak) normalise the tracks?
  2. Why don't we compress all the tracks so they sound the same level?
  3. Why are you doing this?
  4. Why does it turn all my files down / why does it make things so quiet?
  5. What's "Radio" and "Audiophile"?
  6. The fixed Equal Loudness curve doesn't take account of different sensitivity to Bass and different levels!
  7. If you turn tracks down, you introduce noise
  8. Some tracks should be quieter than others - just leave it like it is on the CD!
