Conchairto radio play

February 3, 2016

Conchairto got some radio play tonight on Weymouth’s own AIR 107.2. We’re unfortunately not a band anymore, but Billy put some feelers out while we were still together back in November (or something) to see if we could get some air time, and they scheduled us in for today.

I mastered this EP to go against the grain of the typical ‘Loudness Wars’ levels, and the EP has a dynamic range value of about 10dB (around 8dB on the loudest points), I think. Preserving the dynamics means that I retain all the punch and clarity, which has served me well when radio squash our EP so that it has a dynamic range of 5dB! You can hear in some places the slow release time of the limiter as it recovers from the loudest parts of our songs, particularly on the outro of “Weathered Skin” where Max is doing some snare rolls.

Have a listen to the wavey audio of the broadcast that I pinched below.
