Why are some waveforms bigger than others? It's not just volume, there's more to it. I've noticed that epic awesome songs usually bridge the whole waveform whereas other songs don't. How do? How do?

Re: traktor

It may depend on how its limited. If you bump the limiter up the wave forms will always be huge, making the dynamics less present. Also if you have a high frequency and a low frequency playing at the same volumes the low frequency will always have a bigger wave form. In my opinion unless the track calls for it, limiting a lot can harm the track because you want those dynamics.

Re: traktor

many commercial songs /dance songs these days are highly compressed,if you see the wave form of an orchestral piece itll have a lot of variation in the dynamic spectrum.in most popular songs these days they stay the same level almost through out with little headroom at most parts in the song.giving like a rectangular blockish look to the wave form.

Re: traktor

I saw a lecture with George Massenberg and he mentioned how today we way over compress our mixes ... I feel we do slam them way too much .. however try and convince that to an A&R guy who says the mix is too quite on his macBook speakers !

Re: traktor

I think the waves are for the frequenties: the light blue, high frequenties, blue, mid frequenties and dark blue, low frequenties.
I think if there are more different kind of frequenties the waveforms are bigger.
