There's no reason why you should destroy all the dynamics. Fuck off loudness war
OH ha ha.. guess i'll undo my "mastering" then and resumbit.

I sent it in so I'd stop messing with it and just concentrate on my own material. A trick that was likely not going to work anyway.

I'd guess most of us would likely end up between -14 and -12 with this mix without thinking about it. Likely it depends on how the metering on the master bus is setup.

Even if I end up in the minority and other people will find their mix naturally ends up at -12 anyway, I feel like -14 is a better reference point - It's much much easier to go down that it is to go up!

Quick poll:

How do you all have your metering display setup for the Master? and How conscious are you of hitting a target level when mixing?

I have a RMS display offset of -14. If I see too much red on the RMS meters, I try to back off. Generally I do not use any Loudness metering when mixing.
