Are you confused about exactly what YouTube’s playback volume normalization is doing to your music ?
Maybe you understand the basic idea but struggle to predict exactly what will happen when videos are uploaded ?
Well, that’s understandable – the procedure is still inconsistent and unpredictable. Some songs are measured and normalized right away, others take weeks, some never seem to be normalized at all.
But it is happening – and YouTube just added an important new feature which can really help you get a grip on the process.
You can now see exactly what effect the system is having on our audio, because YouTube have exposed the normalization data in their interface. You just need to know where to find it – and what it means.
