Hey guys, a couple quick questions about standards for mixing commercials -

1) If the spec sheet says -24 LKFS, does that typically mean +/-2? Or are there instances where it literally has to hit -24 for the average?

2) Are we basically robots as far as this? I get it if it's a consistent VO + Music, but one of the spots we're working on right now is mostly music and light foley/fx work with a couple lines at the end. This obviously ends up reading way lower than our others that are VO driving that are hitting -24, and if I make the change globally to hit -24 for this spot, the dialogue at the end is WAY too hot (obviously).

What are your experiences with these?
