What’s the Difference Between Loudness and Volume?

In the last video I talked briefly about the difference between loudness and the amplify effect in Audacity. Let’s put another piece of the puzzle together by talking about the difference between loudness and volume. I talked about this in a previous video but the question comes up a lot so I want to address it again, emphasizing that loudness is a component of the waveform. These are not the same thing. Loudness is embedded in the waveform and volume is not. Let’s talk about it.
