Sender Spike, good job on this! Anyway a larger version could be made, or an button to display a larger size? The ballistics of your VU meter seems pretty on point. I can only assume Waves knows what they're doing when it comes to analog plugins, and yours displays very similar. A slight difference, but then again, theirs does not have a peak-hold, which I appreciate in yours. In comparison to the free mvMeter2, theirs reads maybe a little high. Level checking with pink noise and tones reveals that all are nearly identical, but for music and transients, it's all in the ballistics.
You can toggle the size by clicking on the SN02-G (default size) and SN02-GX (1.45x default size) text in the bottom right corner respectively. Alas, the plugin is optimized for 24'' HDTV (1080 lines) screens, so, that's that. Anyway, thanks for feedback :).
OK, thanks for pointing that out! The 1.45x size is perfect as I run 2560x1600 resolution. Thanks for making this plugin meter. I plan on using it as a possible replacement for mVmeter. (I am just demoing the Waves VU meter, which should be freakin' free).
