Turn up the volume? I'm sure Jan has some input about the loudness war.

Re: DIRTY EPIC IS STILL FUCKING AWESOME
Wow, you're reminding me... I've had new headphones for some months now and still haven't fully listened to dubno!

Yeah, dubno is really quiet... so quiet that some audio players are playing it too quiet even when the volume is on maximum.
On most tracks (except maybe Dark and Long) there is wasted headroom of ~3db...
You can fix this by using Replay Gain and you will never need to touch your volume knob again. Of course this won't work if you're playing the CD.

Or find this version, it's "remastered".

I remember doing some tests with limiting, and most plugins are very good when doing it correctly. But transients (sharp sounds) always suffer, no matter how good the plugin is, because they need the headroom.

For example listen to Rowla or Confusion the Waitress: the "kick" of the kickdrum is very pronounced and awesome. Limiting would be very bad here...

Then for a bad example listen to Cups. Cups is meant to have a kick like that, too... but most of them are destroyed... On each snare hit the kick is noticably weaker. Or listen to around 7 minutes: there are almost no kicks left, only a muffled "thud".

Or Little Speaker... You can hear the limiting working if you listen to the kicks.

But yeah, Dirty Epic is awesome
