ALM 5.1 is designed as a key component in your mixing workflow. Based on the new ITU, EBU and ATSC loudness standards, the plugin offers you full Loudness and True Peak Metering for Mono, Stereo and 5.1 channel formats featuring measurements for Momentary, Short Term and Integrated Loudness, with Loudness Range and Max True Peak Level. Wheter your want to target the loudness (-23 LUFS,according to EBU specification, or -24 LUFS, according to ATSC specification) or you want to use the relative gate of -10 LU, ALM 5.1 is all you need to control the loudness of your audio material. Both LU and LUFS scales are available, also, you can set the start and the stop of your measurements or you can simply let the plugin do it by following the host transport.
If you prefer a higher resolution for the target zone you can use the +9 LU scale and if you prefer a higher dynamic range you can use the + 18 LU scale. With both value and bar indicator for Loudness Range availabel, you can decide if your audio needs more dynamic compression or not.
