Putting the final touches on a 2-hour documentary project - complete sound re-design, nat sound, variant dialog, and a primarily orchestral score....etc, etc.
I will admit, this is one of my first full post-mixes. I'm a rookie, but I'm shooting for that Rookie of the Year spot!
Is there a standard reference or target level for the music alone? Dialog RMS/Peak is about -27/-9 on an LEQ(a) meter, and from what I've seen thus far....I should be shooting for -23/-6 or -9 on the full mix. (Yes?)
The fx stem is fairly irrelevant in this case, as far as the over level goes. It's fairly sparse.
Any insight or links to further reading on "levels" in general would be appreciated!
