HM08 T02: Akimbo
 
This Trance genre piece will be Track 2 on the Hummingbird Masters Volume 8 release.

While I was able to achieve a 10 db dynamic range (DR) for this track, and this resulted in less than 1 decibel of loudness variance in the perfect loudness standard, the 5th standard--Apple Beats/iTunes--measures as a full 4 db of volume reduction!

Well, after mucho thought, I decided that the streaming services rule! And getting it right in mastering this track was more important than if iTunes decides to turn my music DOWN.

That's ok. Let it go.

My music sounds better down.
