MAAT Modernizes TT DR Offline Meter

MAAT Labs GmbH

MAAT Incorporated has announced the release of DROffline version 1.0, a native metering application for stereo tracks and albums.

MAAT says DROffline, a faithful recreation of the much loved TT DR Offline Meter for modern computers, addresses an unfulfilled need for all engineers and audiophiles concerned with dynamic range issues.

Available for both macOS and Windows, DROffline offers two essential modes for evaluating DR dynamic range. Individual tracks or files can be measured, or entire directories representing an album's worth of tracks.

DR is a de facto standard created in 2009 to gauge the amount of dynamic range compression being applied to popular music. The broad adoption of the DR measurement system paved the way for the movement toward, and eventual adoption of, loudness control standards now in place worldwide.

DROffline generates an official DR value, the only application that does. For audio engineers, DROffline is typically used in conjunction with the companion DRMeter plug–in, a real time gauge of dynamic density for preflight checks during mixing and mastering. For audio enthusiasts, DROffline is used to measure and compare file–based assets in their music libraries.

Friedemann Tischmeyer, inventor of the DR measurement system and president of MAAT, stated that DR has raised awareness in both the pro and consumer communities. The new, native DROffline will extend that involvement in, and appreciation of, less dynamically compressed music releases.

Price: $15.
