I'm trying to get to grips with the new metering functions - especially the loudness meters.
In the "old days" I mixed so the peaks were -1-2 dB and loudness around 12-18 dB- depending on the material.
Now we have LUFS and LU and AES17 and recommended level is -23 LUFS.
If I mix a file that is -23 LUFS the peaks max at -10 and RMS at -20. Sounds much weaker than my old mixes.
And all the different meters scales - Digital, EBU,DIN, British, Nordic, K-20 etc.. - very confusing.. - what shall I aim for ?
I've been reading up on the subject but haven't found an "explanation for dummies" - including the Steinberg videos.
Can anyone direct me to where I can find easy to understand comparisons ?
