Audio Pluggers has announced the immediate availability of a VST version of K-Meter. Previously available only as an Audio Unit, K-Meter provides audio engineers with the latest in loudness metering tools, helping them to create dynamic, consistent, and high quality mixes, according to Audio Pluggers.
K-Meter adheres to ITU-R BS.1770-1 and combines it with Bob Katz's K-System, having support for True Peak and perceived loudness (LKFS) metering. Combining these features with a pink noise generator for monitor calibration and an elegant interface, K-Meter aims to give users confidence in the quality of their audio.
- Built from the ground up around the K-System.
- Upsampled (up to 4 times) "True Peak" detection that discovers inter-sample peaks.
- RMS and LKFS (ITU-R BS.1770-1) meters. LKFS meters model perceived loudness, taking into account the ear's sensitivity to different frequencies.
- High quality pink noise generator for monitor calibration.
- Clip indicators with user controlled clip sensitivity.
- Collapsible interface that occupies less screen space.
- SIMD optimizations that utilize AltiVec and SSE when available.
