Discussion 13.1.1

Dynamic Range

Dynamic range is the differences in loudness within the performance. A music composition has different loudness for artistic emphasis of emotion. If reading a music sheet, there would be written commentary, such as piano or “soft” or forte “loud”, by the composer telling the singer(s) or instrumentalists how to “sound” the piece. An audio engineer needs to take into consideration how to maintain the fidelity of music and the dynamic range, keeping both balanced for the aural effect the composer or presenter is creating.
