TOPIC: The Loud Factor

The Loud Factor 30 Nov 2001 12:15 #21096

I've often wonder why some soundtracks are so loud. Why is that. I've seen some movies where you can bearly hear what's being said over the music. Is this a problem in production? What purpose does it serve to have the background music and sounds so loud?

Lots of work has been done by the industry TASA committee:

If you have a print or trailer that seems to have an excessively loud mix, report it through the Lucasfilm THX Theatre Alignment Program, which is coordinating TASA certifications:
