Why Spotify Lowered the Volume of Songs and Ended Hegemonic Loudness

What sound engineers have come to realize is that Spotify has reduced the LUFS index of everything on its platform from -11 LUFS to -14 LUFS, a number in line with that of competing musical platforms like YouTube (- 13 LUFS), TIDAL (-14 LUFS), and Apple Music (-16 LUFS). In practice, the volume for human ears will be more controlled, and you may not even notice the change. – Bruno Romani, MOTHERBOARD http://ift.tt/2ue123z
