Hopefully there are some people that know the EBU R128 loudness measurement. (Germany)
I have a TV advertisement, that sounds exactly the way I want. It consist a Backing track, one FX and a Claim Voice-over.
Every track is EQ-ed and Compressed but just so slightly that I keep some dynamics.
The Song starts of with lower volume than ends with a crescendo. The VOice-over kicks in at the peak of the song, so i reduced the Volume of the song by 8 dB via a fitting Volume envelope. The FX (Camera Flashlight sound) appears just before the voiceover.
On my master channel I have High and lowpass, a Kramer Tape for slight saturation and Compressing and one iZotope Ozone Maximiser. This Brick wall Limiter creates no gain reduction. (Just for safety reasons)
Now my problem: I need to deliver a EBU R128 Mix down with -23 Integrated LUFS and max -20 Short Term LUFS
Right now I have -23 Integrated LUFS and -19 Short Term LUFS.
MY Problem is, that the Voice Over appears to loud for the measurement. but if i lower its volume, it starts to fight with the music. When I change the Volume envelope of the music track, the fade from loud to silent is to strong.
It feels like whatever i change on the left, causes only more difference between Integrated and Short term LUFS :/
What do i need to do. TO fulfil the Restrictions.
Thank you very much!
