WLM / EBU R128 specs question
Can somebody please explain in layman's terms a few things about the EBU R-128 standard and its relation to the Waves Loudness Meter.
Specifically I'm mixing an amateur short film that will mostly be shown online, so I'm aiming for just a touch louder than a DVD mix which I understand to require -23LUFS.
Using the WLM my mix is currently sitting at -19LUFS (Long Term) with a -1.5dbTP. However the Range is 26LU. Can somebody with a bit more experience tell me if this range is a bit too high for the online world? Is some compression in order?
Also, when I read about +/- 1LU in the EBU R-128 specs (-23LUFS +/-1LU), what specifically in WLM would that refer to?
Edit: I should also probably mention I'm using my university computers for WLM and I'm pretty new at this...
