Another Writer’s Journey – Gary’s Little Biographical Story

ManonBeachPlease accept my apologies for writing about myself. I generally try and avoid this as I feel I am nowhere near as important as the stories I tell (and those that we tell as far as the Celtic Myth Podshow is concerned). That having been said, let’s plunge on in!

When I moved from Primary School to Secondary school (after the now legendary 11+ examination), one of my favourite lessons was the English class. At 11 years old I was far too young to understand much about Grammar or story/poem analysis, but I loved the act of creation involved in summoning imagery and meaning from words. Plain and simple words that when strung together could create pictures in my mind and feelings in my chest.

The Loudness Wars start with this Episode

{Techy stuff – please feel free to ignore!}

We may be slow to catch on to the rest of the Audio world, but have just discovered the Loudness Wars. Have you noticed that when you are watching a movie or a show that when the commercials come on, the volume seems to go up to a painful level? There seems to be a noticeable difference in levels across all sorts of broadcast media. This has occurred as a result of advertisers and producers compressing their audio to make it as loud and noticeable as possible. A side effect on music has been that overly compressed music has become louder and punchier but has lost much of its dynamic range.

ITU BS.1770-3 Standard

ITU BS.1770-3

A Little while back legislation was introduced to level our the playing field and bring a standard to ‘loudness’ known as ITU BS.1770-3. Stateside this was implemented using the ATSC/85 (and variants) standard and the rest of the world used the European Broadcasting standard known as EBU R-128.

With this Show, we have started to ensure that our shows are EBU R-128 Compliant (which also includes the ITU standard) so you should find that your listening experience is much more pleasant that it may have been before. We will, as time allows, go back and retro-edit our back catalogued so that all of our shows are Compliant to this standard.

For more notes about Loudness compliance, check out R128Audio’s site.
