Petition: Bring Peace to the Loudness War
A group of audio professionals has launched a petition requiring music streaming services to properly manage audio loudness.
Collectively known as The Loudness Petition Group, the initiators of this petition ask audio streaming services to implement a normalized loudness level in line with the Audio Engineering Society recommendations. According to them, not only would this result in more homogeneous sound levels but also in improved sound quality and a better respect of the artist's intent.
You can sign the petition and/or get more details about it here, and in case you are interested in more details about the Loudness War issue as a whole AudioFanzine published a series of articles about it last year.
