- Nicely put. I've heard complaints from old-school music lovers that modern-day dynamic range compression is ruining music and so their love of vinyl is really a love of well-mastered media not a love of obsolete tech. Do you have any idea if modern vinyl is properly mastered or is it all uniformly loud like pop CDs?May 2, 2012
- It has to have less compression, yes. I didn't want to get too technical in this post, so I didn't include this.
BUT! You can also compress less on CD and digital files - actually people are starting to do this because modern audio players equalize the volume between tracks, and this makes over-compressed music sound bad. Also, you need to use compressors to reach uniform loudness to a certain level anyway, or else the album sounds like a disjointed collection of tracks.May 2, 2012
