    I'm a singer songwriter producer...I've had lots of material mastered mainly with the same engineer, but I've had a couple of tracks back over the last year that seem very crushed.

    I just presumed this was the industry standard but am starting to question the engineer and his ability.

    I was wondering if anyone could listen to a track I'm releasing soon and tell me there opinion on the mastering.

    At one point 1:54 I can here a cackling on the word ' much'.. as if the audio is going through the red.

    I talked to the mastering engineer and he said it's all fine and must be my system.

    Just want to make sure I'm.not being paranoid and the mastering sounds ok

    You need an LUFS metering plugin on your final master buss. Streaming levels should be around -14lufs, CD around -9LUFS.
    The loudness war is over.. Thank god ! ;)
