      I'm betting that this topic has been covered somewhere on this site. So if someone knows of a thread or video that I can review, please advise. But I'm curious how much attention everyone pays to applying some compensation for digital streaming or uploading compression. I just watched a video showing Ozone's codec emulator. Which has got me thinking that I need to understand this topic better.

      Thoughts, techniques, best practices, experiences?

        Hi Jonathan,

        Have a look here
        and go through the blog's pages. I think you'll find some of your questions answered in some of them.

          I am using the Ozone 8 'Maximizer' in my audio output stream "full-time". I use "Audio Hijack" to take the audio and pass it through my room correction software. The normal path is

          Audio -> O8 Maximizer -> ARC -> output device

          I use the Maximizer to dither the output - my primary interface is 16-bit/48 KHz - threshold and ceiling are at 0. I honestly can't tell the difference between 24 bit/48 KHz and the 16 bit version dither or not.

          In all of my mixes I have O8 last on the mixbus (I don't dither here) and I do preview codecs when mixing music for YouTube videos.

          I can spare the 50% of 1 cpu thread that is consumed by my audio output.
