The inner workings of how streaming services normalise loudness across tracks can be somewhat hazy; in a worst-case scenario, your tracks could be slammed with loudness normalisation penalties. With Streamliner, ADPTR Audio promises that you’ll be able to find out exactly how your tracks sound to end listeners, and how they might be affected when featured in playlists with other tracks.

Below are most of the codecs included in Streamliner…

  • Spotify
  • Tidal
  • Apple Music
  • YouTube Music
  • Deezer
  • Pandora
  • Soundcloud
  • Bandcamp
  • Napster
  • Beatport Pro
  • Primephonic
  • Mixcloud
  • Facebook Video
  • Instagram
  • Twitch
  • Gaana

Streamliner’s operation involves a metering section with loudness, dynamics and true-peak meters; a codec auditioning section, which also includes a loudness match function, and a reference track player for A/B-ing your track against another master.

You’ll also be able to export tracks directly through the plug-in at the bit rates used by each streaming platform for you and clients to preview.

Streamliner is available for purchase now, until 1 November, at an introductory price of $169 (usually $199). The plug-in is also included in Plugin Alliance’s Mixing & Mastering Mega Bundle.
