The loudness war is over.

All music streaming services and broadcasters have loudness management in place. So go ahead, destroy all the dynamics in your track to make it louder, and see it scaled back to meet loudness requirements.

We can now finally have tracks again with proper dynamics and transient responses. Such a lovely world :-)

And therefore the relevant question now is: what is the most transparent limiter?

Nugen ILS2 for wide band, DMG Limitless for multi-band.

Here is the note on my soundcould page...

A NOTE ABOUT LOUDNESS
You might notice that our productions are quieter than a lot of other artists’ tracks on Soundcloud. Our productions are generally set with the peaks of the audio at their highest possible level. Same goes for the loud tracks from other artists on Soundcloud. So, why the difference in listening level? We both have our peaks maxed out however the loud tracks have all the quieter parts of the music turned up so the over-all level is quite a bit louder. But, in order to do this the depth of the range of levels is significantly reduced (sometimes referred to as dynamci range). Streaming media further distorts overly loud music, reducing quality and the potential for you to enjoy it. Our tracks are not loud and adhere to industry standard loudness levels that strike a balance between over-all loudness and maximizing "dynamic range" to provide the highest possible fidelity and prioritize your enjoyment of the music.
