How Loud Should You Master Your Music?

How Loud Should You Master Your Music?
In this video I show you what settings to use on your limiter when mastering for the best results.
After my popular “How to Master Your Music in 5 Simple Steps” video with over 650,000 views I wanted to update the loudness specs.

Ceiling – Set at least -1.0dB True Peak. Potentially up to -2dB True Peak
Ensure you select “True Peak” – This is essential.
Average LUFS – Hit at least -14 to avoid spotify limiting and then push it louder to your own preferences.
