Not my quote. It was mentioned in one of the responses.
Yes, but often the answer is not as simples "do this" or "press that". Sometimes it is necessary to provide a little more context because it is often unknown how much the OP knows already.
You forgot to finish that sentence
You are entitled to your own opinion, but not to your own facts.
Again, I'm not posting opinions, I'm posting facts. Don't shoot the messenger. Everybody can read up on VU Meters, their specs, etc.
Another dangerous meme on the Internet (or society in general). I don't come here and say, I'm a guru and I'm a right and you are wrong. It just happens that I work in audio production professionally for over 30 years and I teach audio courses at the University. I just know a thing or two about that subject and I'm happy to share and discuss.
What I'm seeing more and more on the Internet is that a lot of wrong technical information is spread around and picked up by beginners and I just try to enter some facts here and there.
Unfortunately, people who know things or the field of science are demonized lately, which is a little bit worrisome (disclaimer, this is my opinion).
Again, posting facts is considered "biased". Correcting information is considered "trashing". Providing additional (hopefully useful) information is considered "bombarding with a whole bunch of info". Just wow.
It is interesting to suggest that I don't understand VU Meters and then continue to state so much wrong/questionable things about VU Meters that I don't even have the time to correct them.Uriel Anthony wrote: ↑Fri Apr 09, 2021 1:06 amIt seems that you don't even understand that VU meters are for observing how hot a signal is (on the long term, or aka average) relative to the circuitry of an analog (or analog modelled) audio processor which is directly related to OP's 2nd question. VU meters were never meant for loudness measurements. In the old days they will use RMS or PPM meters for that instead.
Again, I don't know where that is coming from. Giving advice to the OP that a VU Meter is the wrong tool (based on all the facts that I provided) doesn't "deny" anything. That is just weird.
