Broadcasting or producing a podcast we want to create a positive sound experience for our listeners. Loudness is one quality factor for this. Our listeners don’t want to keep turning volume controls. That’s why we have to ensure constant loudness when producing. We do that by observing normalization.
When normalizing, we also have to think about different transmission paths: Do we produce files for downloading or streaming or transmitting audio to the transmission tower? There are different requirements, regulations and standards for various applications.
Normalization workshop is planned for February.
