View loudness and peak information while playing a song on Spotify

Spotify is now more dynamic than ever! Well... not as such, but you know what I mean!

In my recent test on the Spotify loudness normalization I was (once again) reminded about that there is a limiter in their signal chain.

Artists!
Don't stop the quality control of the music / sound when you give the video editor the file for the song he's about to use for your video. Use the best quality you can (and by that I don't mean to upsample or anything like that, just lossless master files). If...

Someone put up this playlist on Youtube to test Youtube's Loudness Normalization settings.

Despite the wrong LUFS figures in the descriptions of the videos (they are ca. 1-2 LU/dB off) then it does proof that Youtube TURNS DOWN louder material to ca. -12.5 LUFS. Youtube...
