Niki, would you happen to know of any of these tricks that they use to mix and/or master their songs to make it sound louder without any hard clipping or pulling down the threshold on my master limiter? I say I want a good dynamic range, but I just want it to have enough range for it to not give you a headache when you listen to it. I know all music nowadays is really compressed, but they still don't overdo it. I basically want it to be about as loud as other music without degradation of quality.
