Group for all those who are fed up with current "Loudness Race" audio mastering practices.

IF:
  • you feel exhausted just after a short listening of a new (or remastered) album of your favourite artist
  • you hear annoying crackles and distortion in your favourite tracks, despite having very good quality audio equipment
  • you often find modern bands/artists with great composition, melody, instruments, lyrics, but somehow their music lacks punch, dynamics, life, clarity and becomes annoying

THEN

You become aware of a disease of modern music industry - massive overcompression squashing great music into constant wall of noise, JUST TO MAKE RECORDS LOUD, LOUDER, THE LOUDEST!!!
Welcome to the real world, Neo.

So if you just can't stand that your favourite music is being destroyed by our-tunes-must-be-the-hottest-and-loudest-on-all-the-planet morons having no real music understanding - join this group.

Some articles explaining "Loudness War" issue:

To the music industry:
If we want it loud, we'll know how to make it loud! We know how to use volume knob! Don't make shit out of great recordings!
