Now you can have the very latest in native plug-ins to measure Loudness and True-Peak on mono, stereo or surround (LM6n) tracks in new versions of Pro Tools and other major DAWs. We’ve loaded the native LM2n & LM6n plug-ins with new dedicated settings, new viewing options, improved off-line measuring in Pro Tools – and a host of other new features. Of course they come with our innovative Radar Display, allowing you to capture the essence of your loudness landscape at a glance.
Loudness measuring is based on subjective perception, so your program material can in fact overload if normalized the traditional way (quasi-peak or sample-peak). Therefore, normalization is also part of many broadcast standards, and to comply, you must use a true-peak meter. A true-peak meter looks at the actual samples as well as inter sample peaks, which means that it can unveil peaks that would otherwise cause distortion.
LM2n and LM6n help you get a precise reading that allows you to normalize your audio without compromising the quality.
Pro Tools users will appreciate the off-line function, measuring your audio loudness faster than real time by running LM2n or LM6n as an Audio Suite plug-in.
Simply choose preset, select the audio clip you want to measure and hit ‘Analyze’. That’s it!
