I found this site while researching audio mixing levels.
I have recently started as the full time engineer mixing advertising content for television in NZ, Australia and US.
My question is related to LKFS
Our guidelines state that we must mix to the -24 LKFS standard with a true peak max of no greater than -9dbfs .
I was listening to some of our companies previous content and found it to be quieter than other content and wonder if there are some methods of getting the nest out of the level guidelines I have been given.
My understanding of the -24LKFS standard was that I could avoid too much hard limiting and compression and aim for the best sounding mix inside the guidelines.
Any tips to get the nest cut through using the new standards?
Any help much appreciated
