Feature ideas: Match loudness x 2
I am using audition cc 2019 and have a suggestion on how to improve loudness matching. I love this feature in it’s current implementation in the waveform editor as well as in the multitrack version.
First suggestion: It would be great if you were able to disable the peak limiting in IBU 1770-3 loudness matching when using 32 Bit files. What I mean, 32 Bit allows for over 0db audio, so you can alter the amplification at will. It's not necessary to limit peaks in 32 Bit files at that stage, that can always be made afterwards.
Example: I do lots of atmo and field recordings, and I would like to bring them all to a hearable nice LUFS level, for finding quicker what I want much later. I don’t want peak compression at that stage, and as they’re 32 Bit recordings I don’t care about peaking at all. If it peaks I’ll bring that one down later or add a compressor. Or maybe I’ll just mix it into my movie at a very soft level. But for establishing a library that is easy to search through matching that way would just be nice.
Second suggestion: Please make loudness matching also an effect that you can apply to a certain selection only. Just like the normalize effect. At the moment loudness matching only works for either a) files or b) clips in a multitrack session. It would be nice to use this feature inside a selection of a wav file as well.
Example: I’ve got interviews where loudness is not constant (people talking louder and softer over the course of the interview, no short-time differences). So I would select the different answers, to match them in loudness.
As for now I’d have to make a multitrack file, put the clip on a track, split it into parts, match volume on clips, export it, and continue editing again. That’s a little cumbersome.
With kind regards
