How much headroom should you leave when creating music for online video? Get this wrong, and your audio will clip/distort. Lossy conversion requires much more headroom than you might expect, but as Adam explains in this video, for precise numbers, you'll need to run some tests.
When creating music for online video, how loud should the audio be? How compressed? To answer this we first need to understand "loudness normalization", and how the various video platforms compensate for loudness. In this video, Adam uses Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube as examples.
What do we do with the stereo image? Do we place things in the center? On the sides? Or in the distance? And find out why it's much safer to use mono compatible techniques, as occasionally (sometimes for no logical reason) the video platforms sum to mono.
In this video, learn what sample rate is, and how to correctly/cleanly convert to the correct sample rate for video.

In this video, learn how to better pitch music to video creators, by implementing principles from one of my favorite books: Influence, science and practice.
