Loudness meter for correctly setting
up tracking and mixing levels
Most digital audio equipment sadly
only has peak meters. This is readily understandable
as you want to avoid digital clippings by all means.
However, the lack of average meters makes correct
gain staging almost impossible.
For gain staging, you need average
meters or – even better – a combination of peak and
average meters. And this is were traKmeter
traKmeter has an
average level meter that is centered around
-20 dB FS RMS and a peak level meter that
is aligned to -9 dB FS. It comes
with extensive documentation, supports stereo and
8-channel audio signals, has two scales, two
ballistics modes and is easy to use. Additionally,
all meters have been thoroughly validated.
