I got some Cds new and old and I cannot believe sometimes in my ears whith the things I can hear. I'm talking for Cds like: Evanescence, Anastacia, Chilly Peppers and many other Metal/Harcore Produktions. No dynamic (the wave looks like a block) and the music distorts. In the beginning I thought that my monitors are dead or something. I looked in the booklet and I saw the names of wellknown persons who did the mastering. Here is the question: Are those people deaf? Do they give a $*^t how it sounds? Do they turn the Comps and Limiters till 1000 cause loud = good? Is this the new art of mastering?
