Technorama Tuesdays 180925: Levels, loudness and line-ups!!
How do you set up your station so that the fader positions on your console sit nicely (you know, at the zero mark!), your mic levels are all correct, all the material in your library is equally loud, your production works well on streaming and the DDN, and everyone understands what the level meters mean?
Our research suggests that everyone thinks they know about loudness, but hardly anyone really does. The TV industry learned that the hard way and still struggles – but your station could be perfect.
Who’s this webinar for?
Technologists who look after stations, people who do and manage production, and anyone who wants the truth about what this level stuff is all about.
What will we cover?
In this free 1-hr online learning experience you’ll:
- learn how to talk about the dB like an expert
- share secrets of dBfs
- find out what LUFS is
- learn to read a gain structure
- see why peak-to-average ratio is an important thing to understand
- discover the difference between peak normalisation and loudness normalisation
- compare situations where limiting and level control can help.. and where it doesn’t.
We’ll help you lock in a few bits of theory that you really need to know, and then concentrate on the practical stuff that will keep you out of trouble. You’ll be able to impress your friends AND have a station that sounds supremely balanced.
You’ll leave this session with a better appreciation of the truths and fallacies of levels and loudness, and be ready to line up your station with confidence.
This Technorama Training Tuesday webinar will be presented by John Maizels and be moderated by Emma Couch (Technorama Board members)
