April 2017 Dynamics Check

What these look like in Screenflow... :)

Let's see what's happening with Mixes and Dynamics out there for this month. w00t!

This time we're looking at the top 8 songs on the Country 'Hot Tracks' in Apple Music. We'll be checking out other genres for the next few months as has been requested from quite a few, and is a great idea. Thanks for the input. :)

I must say that for the most part I'm pretty impressed (in fact so much so by the last track that I added it to the Library), but there's some real nastiness in there too - not as bad as the most of the Pop Chart Fodder we've heard before, but you can hear the influence of The Loudness War and it's damage...

As usual, I do this to see how the Industry is doing at fighting the Loudness War and hopefully to give some examples of what (and what not) to do with your mixes and your music.

Bring the Dynamics Back.
