    Hey so i finish a track and i upload a different versions, for spotify apply the limiter about -10 LUFS and for Youtube -8.

    I know spotify for rule its limiting the tracks to -14LUFS but i really confident about the feeling of loudness in -10LUFS.

    Anyway, my question is what is the "REAL" value for Youtube, what im feeling is the limiter squeezing the mixing.



    Best regards.
    Sorry for my English

    Yeah a lot of us are asking ourselves the same questions.... The Spotify -14lufs seems to be bullshit, most mastering engineers aim for -8 to -10 for best results it seems...

    ATM YT adjusts the playback to ~ -13LUFS at -1TP (both values are max). Your track is lowered by 5,3dB.
    Right click in the vid -> stats for nerds -> Volume/Normalized there you can see the 5,3dB.
    Positive values mean it's too loud by this amount and thus accordingly lowered.

    Spotify's loudness normalizationis off by default. 'The web player and Spotify apps integrated into third-party devices (such as speakers and TVs) don’t currently use Loudness Normalization.'
