Some studies are reviewed showing that the desired loudness balance between speech and music in audio broadcasts is influenced by the type of program, the age and sex of the listener, and various other factors, and that the requirements of various groups of listeners are often contradictory. The possibility of automatic balance monitoring is examined, and a device for automatic discrimination between speech and music is outlined.
