I've been reading up on the loudness war reciently and decided to download a dynamic range meter for foobar2000. after checking some of my music i noticed that on some tracks there were huge discrepancies between what i percieved the dynamic range to be and what it was measured to be. this was surprising, so i imported two tracks into audacity to visually compare them. (wont link to the tracks as they probably arent appropriate for a family friendly site) the top track (DR4) is something that i had considered to be one of the more dynamic and relaxed dubstep tracks i've ever heard, while the bottom track (DR6) was described on release by the artist as "really stupid, really loud". looking at and listening to the tracks gives me a completely different impression to what the DR meter gave, so i was wondering how these meters measure DR, as i really can't reconcile the measurements with everything else. thanks in advance.
