MAAT releases "DRMeter MkII" Plug–in for Loudness Measurement


MAAT Incorporated has announced the release of DRMeter MkII, a cross platform plug–in for the measurement and monitoring of audio Loudness and dynamics. MAAT say the plug–in premiers several new features for the Loudness metering marketplace, and is the first loudness measurement tool specifically designed for music creation as well as broadcast production and post.

Available for all major DAWs, DRMeter MkII follows on the success of MAAT's original DRMeter. DRMeter MkII was created for engineers working in all audio industries, from mainstream music production, content streaming, broadcast radio and television to gaming, theatrical, industrial and AR/VR. Measurement methods have been expanded to include all international Loudness metrics, as well as MAAT's own DR Dynamic Range ad hoc standard for judging "dynamic density," the amount of dynamic contrast in a recording.

DRMeter MkII combines high accuracy R128 and A/85 conformance with elements crafted expressly for music creation. It displays channel–specific trends by augmenting EBU–mandated monaural measurements with classic L/R metering for Max. Short Term, Max. Momentary and True Peak, to identify trends and channel–specific issues without the need for an additional meter. It also offers both the emerging PSR metric, Sample Peak–to–Short–term Loudness Ratio, and official DRi, integrated DR formerly available only in MAAT's DROffline batch measurement utility.

With this product, DRMeter MkII premiers Dynamic Deviation, offering easy to evaluate Loudness management when mixing and mastering for different Loudness–normalized distribution platforms from Spotify through Apple Music to YouTube. In addition, DRMeter MkII introduces DualVu, displaying both relative and absolute scales simultaneously so artistic judgement is less hindered by attention to a Loudness target.

DRMeter MkII makes all aspects of Loudness tangible and easy to understand, while a round trip MfiT (Mastered for iTunes) monitoring and metering feature eases seamless leveling for streaming music delivery. Multiple metering modes are visible simultaneously, and presets for all major streaming services and broadcast standards highlight the extensive feature mix.

DRMeter MkII is available from MAAT and select pro audio distributors for US$129. Images, specifications and additional information including a QuickStart guide and videos are accessible at MAAT dot Digital on the web.
