  • (1888PressRelease) October 03, 2015 - In the world of digital audio production, there is a limit to just how far, and how loud a song or sound can be. Many producers know this as the digital 0db barrier. It has been known to be unbreakable, and going any further is impossible.

    Knowing this, producer and label owner Chris Kunferman (E.G.D.F. Labs, Portland, Oregon, USA) was shocked when he opened the analysis file to an unsigned, and unreleased song by producer Joe Aguirre aka Joe Be One. The analysis showed a readout of .01dbFS.

    "Its part of my profession to analyze tracks I receive, to make sure the levels are on a competitive playing field with the rest of the industry." Kunferman explains, "There was no question the track was loud to begin with, but to see something above 0dbFS even by a fraction blew my mind." He went on to explain that he had done nothing out of the ordinary for analysis, and had screened hundreds of audio files before and after with the exact same settings, never seeing anything greater than the 0dbfs. Further analysis is under way, to determine the exact cause of the anomaly.

    E.G.D.F. Labs contacted Joe Be One shortly after to secure a contract, and has set the release of the track in question. "Make A Note", is scheduled for international digital release on December 7th, 2015.
