Enjoyed the discussion about broadcast processing and music mastering.
I regard modern radio processing as "real-time mastering".
Mastering can be defined as "optimizing the audio for the particular medium (Vinyl, CD, cassette, MP3 etc)" and that's what broadcast processing does, only in real time.
The real time part is what makes broadcast processing much harder, and the equipment much more sophisticated.

Mastering engineers have not yet (fully) embraced the modern demand for things like clipping, so their equipment does not (yet) have the maturity needed in this area to do it justice.
Remember broadcast's early forays into clipping-for-loudness.
It was not pretty. That's where mastering is at today.

I winced when I noticed a local well-regarded mastering engineer using a TC Electronics Finalizer in his device chain. I experienced its radio processing brother the DBMax at a station and it was not a patch on an Optimod or Omnia box.

Kirk, is the Omnia-6cd still actively marketed?
There's not much about it on the website.
