    Downmixing 5.1 to stereo reduces dynamic range?

    So I downmixed one of my albums that were 5.1 to stereo. The original 5.1 version had a dynamic range of 11-13 using TT Dynamic Range meter. However, when I downmixed them, the stereo versions had a dynamic range of only 6-8. Is this normal or is my downmixing software (foobar) bad at downmixing?

    Songs to loosen the glue

    Hi All i thought i’d be fun to pass around recs for very very low and tactile bass tracks that one would use to loosen the glue of the diaphrams for burn in (i think this is real enough, at least in theory). I may be using glue a little loosely here, forgive me :) Demons by Joanna (so tactile)
