I have a commercial to deliver to Spain and they require the audio track to be "EBU R68-2000 compliant".
I usually deliver commercials to the UK which needs to be EBU R128, and Audition actually has a loudness preset for this (Loudness -23 LUFS) which works fine.
But does anyone know how I can get EBU R68-2000 compliant audio in Audition?
Max PPM Peak
• Permitted Maximum Level : PPM 6.25 (-9dBFS)
• Alignment Level : 1kHz@ -18dBFS
• Ballistic : PPM Type IIa as per IEC 60268-10

Fortunately that standard doesn't mention LUFS! Well, not the version I have, anyway. And that makes it pretty simple. The PPM ballistics are only mentioned because that gives you a 3dB leeway of error, and the Alignment level is also irrelevant if you aren't making a live master recording. Which leaves you with only one thing to do, if your program already measures okay according to R128 - and that's to Normalize your file to -9dBFS and submit it. By definition at that point, the Alignment level will have been at -18dBFS, so no worries on that score at all.
