Signum Audio has released the Bute Loudness Suite. Bute, named after the Scottish isle that is divided into highlands and lowlands, is an integrated loudness solution comprising of an Analyser, True Peak Brickwall Limiter and AudioSuite Normaliser. Designed with post-production and broadcasting in mind, Bute is designed to deliver a number of unique workflow features in a sleek, intuitive interface.
At the core of the suite is the Bute Loudness Analyser, which includes a custom warning system, a history overview that can be navigated and zoomed showing areas of a mix which require attention at a glance, DAW Sync for automatic re-metering, and a multitude of meter ballistics. It also reloads metering data from previous sessions and can handle over 10 hours of data.
Since the initial release of the Analyser, the team have been hard at work building additional tools to transform Bute into a one-stop-suite for all loudness-related needs. The new True Peak Brickwall Limiter and AudioSuite Normaliser use a novel approach to achieve results. In addition, the AudioSuite Normaliser allows a user to accurately comply to loudness standards with the single click of a button.
- Stereo (£199 + VAT).
- Surround (£249 + VAT).
Signum Audio have also decided to make their Bute Loudness Analyser accessible to a wider audience - it is now available in Stereo for £69 (+ vat) and Surround for £89 (+ vat). You can download a free two week trial of the Suite or Analyser to test all the features out for yourself.
