Reflex Acoustics releases free Dynamic Range Meter plugin (VST3/AU)

Reflex Acoustics

Reflex Acoustics has released Reflex Dynamic Range Meter, a free plugin that helps to visualize dynamic range across the frequency spectrum.

From the company:

The dynamic range of a musical signal is difficult to boil down to a single metric. Our approach is to show you a histogram of the momentary loudness of every 5-millisecond grain in your signal, both for the signal as a whole as well as individual frequency bands.

We hope this tool can help producers and engineers to identify potential areas of their material that lack dynamism relative to reference tracks.

Features:

  • Loudness distribution of 5ms grains over the last 3 or 15 seconds, charted relative to mean loudness.
  • Colored bars for Peak (green), 90th percentile (blue), 10th percentile (pink) and Low (red).
  • Scrolling waveform display of last 1 second, at 5-millisecond resolution (click display to freeze waveforms).
  • Mid and Side modes, and a readout of side level relative to mid for each frequency band.
  • LUFS meter showing short-term (i.e. 3-second trailing) perceived loudness.
  • Two filter modes: "Eco." is lighter on CPU, but introduces visible artifacts in the waveform displays for the eight frequency bands; Linear Phase ("Lin.") has a very clean band separation, albeit with variable latency across the lower-frequency bands, meaning that transient peaks no longer align across the displays.

Technical notes:

  • Available in VST3 format for PC, and VST3 & AU formats for Mac. AAX support coming soon.
  • Requires a compatible Digital Audio Workstation or other plugin host.
