    The trouble with the Kia commercial we're discussing, is it's blatant attempt to skirt the "Calm Act": See thread here: http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/new-fcc-rule-regulates-tv-commercial-volume.174691/

    While the volume seems to DROP from the programming as the music starts, you quickly realize there's so much audio compression in the sound track there's no escaping it. The synth they're using has no dynamic range, so it's softest note, is virtually as loud as its loudest. It's pervasive, obnoxious, and it only has four notes in the melody! As four note melodies go, it's not even a good lick:mad:

    Sorry for the way off topic, mods.
