Listening levels?

Hi Tony,

when you were demonstrating your plugins I noticed that the volume was fairly low. Certainly not in the range of 83 db or whatever standard is used. Was that a special situation for this demonstration or is this a typical volume?

Thank you

Hey Hannes,
I listen at a variety of levels actually. Depending on the music and genre I'm working in. If it's something where the audience will be listening loud in their car or a club, I definitely have to listen loud to make sure everything will be heard. If it's a rock/indie thing, I have to make sure the track is energetic at all listening levels ect...

I do try to listen at a low volume for most of my work day, so my ears don't get fatigued quickly. I have to admit, when I need to get hyped, I'll turn it up.
