Now what exactly does that mean?
What is wrong with CDs and songs being really really loud and why don't Corvus Stone like it?
Does it mean Corvus Stone are fab and have the greatest sound and fastest fingers? Nope!
Does it mean Corvus Stone are old and boring and like elevator music volumes? Nope!
A DR of 10 is halfway between bloody ridiculous and really fabaroony.
That is technical jargon of course.
It means that the range is from 0 to 10 on average.
Now we all know that 0 is loud and a number like 20 is soft.
Whoever invented the future, decided that. Don't let it worry you.
Anyway.. The difference between 0 and 5 is smaller than 0 to 10.
If you have parts of music that are as soft as number 10, then if number 2 suddenly arrives, you will be blown out of your chair with shock and awe.
If the softest noise on your CD is 5, then when 2 arrives, it will possibly annoy your mum but you will hardly notice it.
What you WILL notice, is that as the CD starts playing, it is already rather loud(often at number 4 or less), so louder bits can't really happen because there is no noise louder than 0 , as already explained.
So what is the point of making CDs loud, when we all have volume controls to make it as loud as we want anyway?
It is done purely for one reason.. Advertising!
Come in with a loud noise and people will be impressed in a few seconds and buy it.
Unfortunately, A whole CD made that way becomes tiring or actually almost invisible because regardless of the content, there are no dynamics. No shock and awe. No point!
Result? the music sounds lifeless and boring but you bought it(because it sounded loud). So they win!
