    We make audio video clips of classical and instrumental music (some very quite some very loud). We sent these to our new broadcast facility and they complain that our audio is set wrongly. The two files we sent them were both set at a peak audio of -3db The report that came back said one was too loud 100dbfs and one was too quiet – previously our mpg2 clips have never been a problem – what do we do? We do not want our clips too quiet or too loud and for the last ten years recorded audio set at -3db has been OK – what do we do now to keep the technical people happy and make sure the quality is OK?
