Loudness is a measure of the overall perceived amplitude of a track. It is related to mix level only in so much as it is in line with how comfortable your mix is at a particular level. In broadcast it is used to ensure that different programs are perceived to be at the same volume and therefore a consumer would not be reaching for the remote between shows. In stereo music it has been used to match between tracks in a similar but more elegant manner on streaming services.
