LUFS (Loudness Units Full Scale) or LKFS (Loudness K-weighted Full Scale) is a standardized measurement unit for perceived loudness in audio signals.
It is important for ensuring consistent loudness levels across different content, and it is used in broadcasting, music production, audio for video, and streaming platforms for loudness normalization.
Audio professionals should care about LUFS/LKFS because it provides a standardized way to measure and control the perceived loudness of audio content. It helps ensure consistent volume levels across different platforms and devices, providing a more enjoyable and balanced listening experience for the audience.
There is some controversy surrounding LUFS/LKFS. Some concerns include the potential loss of artistic intent due to standardized loudness normalization, variations in loudness standards across platforms, and debates about the accuracy and reliability of LUFS measurements.
The Toronto AES is assembling a panel of audio professionals with first-hand expertise and real-world experience with the LUFS/LKFS standards.
- The standards, how they have been developed
- What media does it apply to (CD, livestreaming, Dolby Atmos, etc)
- Who is driving the usage, (eg radio, Spotify)
- If you don’t master according to the guidelines, what happens to your mix in the various media distributions, and their different LUFS/LKFS requirements
- Best practices eg should you create different mixes for each platform?
