okay bought it FINALLY. I have to say its smooth the way the meters react are quick but easy to see. I love love the calibration ability and find it very helpful. the basics of it are that you have a pink noise that will be generated with a level depending on what k setting you want. This basically lets you listen to the signal at the optimal level.

The metering for RMS is very nice and smooth and reacts in a quick but easy to read way. Also added are a few nice settings that are to be more like what the human ear hears. They have a fast one that I feel is more for like when I or anyone would mix a fast hard hitting song it would be the perceived meter to go to. Where the slow perceived meter would be nice for smooth relaxed music or classical styled music where the dynamics are wide and smooth.

Overall I would say the quality and use is very good the true peak detection is not bad at all its pretty darn good with oversampling on with out it its just a normal to 0 meter but the real use is the way that it helps you get a great dynamic and well balanced mix by helping you out with simple colors and a good smooth visual display. I love the modes and the low CPU hit to yay

the only thing I would say needs improvement is the fact that the buttons seems to be a little sticky to me. Like they are using both round and linear style of use at the same time. By that i mean I have to click to up and to the side to get it right. if they can just make it so I can click or make it linear it would be perfect. I love it and its well worth the money.

Also before I forget I would love if there could be a nice dynamic range number or something so I could know about where I am on it. this is just a cool add and not even needed but just cool to have. I say not needed because I find the way the meters react are much smoother and much more responsive than other meters so you will know if you are compressing alot and some times you need that compressed part.
