Like the title says.

Ever since I've heard of mixers doing home remixes I've wondered if I could somehow, if not actually retaining the original dynamic range, at least recover the theatrical playback level.
Some movies have really too harsh dialogues, so, I thought, if I can extract the main track and measure its loudness, I can apply a gain to obtain a LEQ or LUFS similar to the theatrical mix. But which is it: 85 or 82?

I just tried adjusting two different movies to -27 dBFS RMS and dialogues get shifted to too different levels between the two. Waste of time.

Despite it not working out the way you expected, this sounds interesting. Could you talk about the software you used and your process?

Do you mean that the level between the two movies wasn't consistent to begin with? Why not measure the level for each movie individually and then adjust as necessary for each?

Sorry for the late reply, I was taking a break from internet forums.

I used Adobe Audition to open the ripped center channel in PCM, scan it and apply a new gain based on the "Total RMS Level" value in dB. But I probably should have looked at the LUFS data, although I noticed different LUFS levels between movies.
