Better? Or just louder?

Ever wonder, "how loud should my music be?" Many people prefer louder music - that's how the loudness wars started - but too much "loudness processing" can do more harm than good... Squashed, dull, flat sound - or even pumping and distortion. Now, with Perception, you can zero in on your music's loudness "sweet spot".

Eliminate loudness deception

Perception allows you to hear through "loudness deception" and make truly impartial, accurate decisions about the best possible sound for your music - quickly and easily. You can instantly bypass entire FX chains to make A/B comparisons of EQ settings, compression and more. Even better, Perception will level-match and sync your sources so that "loudness deception" and plugin delay do not influence your decisions.

Compare to Reference Material

Now you can hear how your music compares to that song you've been hearing on the radio. How do the loudness levels compare? Do they have the same dynamic range? What happens if you add some compression? Mastering is iterative: tweak, compare and tweak some more. Perception speeds up the process so that you can quickly nail down the sound you're going for.


  • Bypass complex FX chains.
  • Realtime, loudness-matched A/B testing.
  • Plugin delay compensation, even with external hardware.
  • Peak to loudness ratio display.
  • Compare dynamics with snapshots.



Perception was rated 10/10 by MusicTech Magazine and received an Excellence award.
