Well I personally don’t know anyone at google who can verify that there is loudness matching on YouTube, but as far as I understand how they are measuring it, I’m sure they match the program material to a certain extent.
This guy says they do at least for the new stuff, so I don’t know: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iv67sjuq2go
But I don’t want this discussion to go towards “does YouTube or other site have it implemented”, but weather AudioJungle should consider it since it’s not a site where people just come to listen to music.
As for loudness matching of the tracks bought from AudioJungle when broadcasting, the problem is when the track is too loud, and it’s always better if the track isn’t as loud because it can almost always be brought up if needed. Heck, some broadcasting stations will reject a track by default if it doesn’t conform to their loudness standard, provided they use one that is.
The Loudest Noise Ever video doesn’t disprove that fact stated above because of the measuring method being applied. I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but it should explain some things regarding the clip you posted. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuEtQqC-Sqo
I will repeat my question, do you think AudioJungle should implement some form of loudness matching so every track should be perceived at more or less the same loudness. And do you think this should be considered because the buyers can than more easily fit the tracks into their own projects so it won’t be further squashed by limiters on their end.
I personally don’t like to squash my tracks that much in the first place, and I bet there are others who do as well.
I would like someone from AudioJungle staff to hone in on this one as well so we can have a constructive conversation about it.
