Target Loudness in Project Page
Did you know that each online platform of music distribution has a different loudness requirement?
Some of them might require masters to be located at -16 LUFS while others can be at -14 LUFS.
Now, should you create different masters for each platform?
You could, but, Studio One now presents the Target Loudness feature, that will adjust your overall level (reduce it) in order to hit the required loudness.
This means, you can create your master, turn ON this option, and Studio One will do the very last volume decrease to make sure it hits exactly at the target.
You will never surpass the limit!
Today we are going to demonstrate how to use this new feature.
