Sounds great... Can you please spell out what this LUFS is? and if -10 is too much why not go to -11

The question we need to answer is the planned release medium. E.g. do you plan to release the track on some streaming portals such as spotify, youtube, tidal.. or put it on a CD together with already mastered tracks? Here you can read why: https://www.sweetwater.com/insync/what-is-lufs-and-why-should-i-care/ And here you can measure the penalty you get on the different portals if your track is too loud: https://www.loudnesspenalty.com/ In the end it's still kind of a loudness war, but the rules have changed. Therefore it's about to find the sweet spot between loudness and dynamic (because increasing loudness means to lose dynamics). Or in other words, it's still about make a track as loud as possible but without getting a penalty. In our case, even with the -14LUFS track we will get some penalties, making it louder will result in higher penalties, which means the loudness will not be louder but the dynamics will be lower anyway. Which is a bad deal :-(
