I just lost a mix contest because of TOO MUCH dynamic range! Modular Synthesizers

LOL. I'm good. This was supposed to be a "mixing" contest with no mastering. I was trying to make it "epic". Balance and composition should have been the main criteria but - as we all know - loudness is certainly a factor in how it's received.

Yeah, maybe next time I will "cheat " a little.
I totally agree with you but since every mixers are scared of not being approved for not being loud enough everyone cheat and either master it themselves or send it to be mastered.

the same happen with mastering shootout, people send masters with overs at +3,5 dbfs, I personally refuse to get into that trend.
