Square Cad #14 - The End of the Loudness War?
Greg Reierson (Rare Form Mastering)

Everything about The Loudness War has been thoroughly discussed over the past 10 years, except how to realistically end it. That's changing though, Greg Reierson of Rare Form Mastering Minneapolis broached that topic with a recent article in Mix Magazine.

Greg has been a mastering engineer for over 20 years, has worked through the years of increasing loud releases, and seems certain that an end to the “loudness for loudness sake” impulse of the music industry is on the horizon. I spoke with Greg about how things have changed from the start of his career to today, and what he thinks will bring The Loudness War to an end.
