- Loudness should only be increased when the track sounds as good as or better than the
version without loudness processing while using loudness-compensated A/B comparision.
- Peak leveling takes place according to BS 1770-based True Peak Level (TPL) measurement
with a maximum value of minus 0.5dB TPL, so that subsequent processes like DA conversion
and mp3/AAC encoding takes place without or at least with very low distortion.
