Yes, I think so.So does that mean that an album that originally contained "loud" and "soft" tracks will have all the tracks normalized to the same level?
Given the incredible internal dynamic range in DAWs and that you can now even export to 32-bit floating point, you kinda wonder why bother with careful tracking, gain staging and mixing when the product of your careful work is going to get pushed through all these layers of compression and normalization.
Maybe the first track in my next album should be a PSA with a lyric asking the listener to turn off the loudness normalization in the Spotify app. <sigh />
