I use RadioBoss as broadcasting software for my internet radio station and Stereo Tool as processing plugin. I play pop/rock music and have news once every hour. I have the basic and the declipper licence and have found good presets which I tweaked to my liking. Everything is fine - except for speech.
When listened to at higher volume my radio programm "screams" the spoken word news and some jingles also. The spoken word is processed too loud. My observation with professional radio stations is that speech is always a little bit lower (!) than pop/rock music, so that the enouncement of a song is lower in volume than the song itself. Same goes for news programs. Music is a little bit louder than speech, isn't it?
Is there a way to tell Stereo Tool to treat speech different than music AGC-wise? Or maybe compression-wise? Or can I define an ID3 tag that Stereo Tool reads to lower the volume of that tag? I am not sure whether a "Speech detection" licence could help with this loudness related problem.
Any help much appreciated. Thank you!
