I always put the dynameter from Meterplugs on the master bus to keep the right level of PSR/PLR, and when I add Intensity on the bus I face a sudden decrease of dynamic range. I guess it's a tradeoff between the benefit of Intensity (at low settings) and the reduction of DR.

Agree with you, the 2 mastering preset using the loudness curve are quiet loud even at very low level, after extensive testing, I never use these 2 curves actually, too much DR reduction, on the bus I prefer to use the custom bars, at 6k and intensity at 15%, full bias, it just open gently the mix and sounds gorgeous

What else could one possibly want from a plugin?! This quote should be on their website. :)

It is really good software and it's so cool to see developers who dare to take on new approaches to music software. :tu:

Really high praise review for this in the latest SOUND ON SOUND.

In my own use, I think it's a special plug-in in many ways. I actually liked the v1 so never updated...maybe I should :shrug:

SoundOnSound’s mastering expert Paul White concludes:
“Part of me thinks I shouldn’t be telling you about this plug-in, as by keeping it a secret I’m sure I could get a lot more mastering work! Oh well...”
