For a long time, I struggled to get my audio loud enough without over compressing it or making it clip and distort. And I also seemed to have a hard time getting the loudness of my audio to match from one episode to the next. Incredibly frustrating…

But thanks to some recent developments in the broadcast TV world, I stumbled upon this idea called Loudness Normalization along with some standards specified by European and US broadcast agencies. And I learned about an online tool that can actually process your audio to these standards so that it is just the right loudness for your audience on YouTube, Vimeo or anywhere else online.

We’ll cover Auphonic.com in this first episode—an online service that can process your audio files so that they are just the right loudness. Then in episode 2 we’ll look at the technical details and how to do this loudness normalization using Adobe Audition.

Come on over to http://LearnLightAndSound.com to learn more.
