On w3 site, we read:
Making sure that the foreground speech is 20 dB louder than the background sound makes the speech 4 times louder than the background audio.
I have the following questions. I do appreciate your responses:
Q1. How much louder should that be in terms of LUFSs? 20 LUFS?
Q2. Let’s say, the content of the podcast is as follows:
My music has track 1 and track to with background music and foreground speech, respectively.
measures 1-20 ( intro music, track 1 only)
measures: 20- 120 (background music with foreground speech, track 1 and 2)
measures: 121-130 ( outro music, track 1 only.).
now assume, we want to have background music should be 20 LUFS softer than foreground speech, how can we do this in Cubase, please?
Of course, the mixing console has three channels ( excluding output),1) music 2) speech 3) stereo output bus.
A step by step instruction would be appreciated.
