In this tutorial I explain what “LUFS” metering is, and how to use it to master your music.
I also give an example of mastering a piece of music for Spotify and for CD using LUFS.
Whether you are mastering for streaming services or download or CD, your LUFS levels should be optimised.
The LUFS levels required for Spotify and most streaming platforms is -14LUFS, whereas the LUFS level you might want to hit for printing to CD / Vinyl / Download sites will depend on the genre of music you are making.
Here is the free LUFS metering plugin I use in this tutorial: https://youlean.co/youlean-loudness-meter/
