LUFS, LKFS, dbFS, PPM, VU, RMS

working on sound/audio mastering

concepts one cannot do without

start your recording and mixing at “0VU = -18 dbfs” to have enough headroom

have most channels close to this level or -24dbfs

this should aid your gain staging

Normalise yourself, the less the compression the better

-16 LUFS music, -23 LUFS television (highest recommendation although -13 LUFS music good)

LUFS meters most preferred during mastering

PPM more preferred for fast transients, drums, etc

VU preferred general mixing(easier) so long as its reference to 0 dbfs is set properly
