I asked ChatGPT: “Has dynamic range compression ruined a lot of modern music?”

This is the answer that it gave:

“The use of dynamic range compression in modern music production has been a topic of debate and discussion in the music industry. Some argue that it has led to a homogenization of sound and a loss of musical dynamic, while others argue that it has improved the listening experience and made music more accessible.”

“Dynamic range compression is a technique used to reduce the difference between the loudest and quietest parts of a recording. This can result in music that sounds louder and more consistent, but can also lead to a loss of musical nuance and energy.”

“However, it is worth noting that the use of dynamic range compression is a subjective matter and depends on individual preferences and the type of music being produced. Some genres, such as electronic dance music (EDM) and pop, often have a highly compressed dynamic range to make the music sound louder and more energetic. In contrast, some genres, such as classical and jazz, often have a wider dynamic range to showcase musical expression and nuance.”

“In the end, whether or not dynamic range compression has “ruined” modern music is a matter of personal opinion and cannot be definitively answered. What is clear is that dynamic range compression has become a common tool in the production of modern music, and its impact on the final product will depend on how it is used and the individual listener’s preferences.”
