This is huge. There’s a problem with loudness normalization, and TIDAL asked Eelco Grimm to find a solution for them. What he found in his research was unexpected and exciting.
Eelco has been involved with loudness measurement and the LUFS standard from the very beginning, and in this show we also talk a little about his story and how it involves:
- Technology versus emotion in music
- The origins of loudness research
- Eelco’s TIDAL research findings (which you should know about, even if you’re not interested in normalization !)
- His advice to TIDAL and
- How they reacted
- The future of normalization
Since recording the show we’ve heard that TIDAL have implemented all the changes we discuss in the show by default, in all new installs of their iOS and Android apps, with desktop to follow. For more information, click here.
