The problem, however, is that the documentary does not make the difference between data compression and dynamic range compression.
The documentary features interviews with writers, producers, rappers, mixers, music journalists, and many more people in the music business. Some of the artists making an appearance include Slash, Snoop Dogg, Steve Aoki, and Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park.
The documentary was uploaded to YouTube using its own audio compression.
