In an intereseting new development TC Electronic have released a dedicated low cost stereo only version of their LM6 loudness meter plug-in.
The new LM2 plug-in still features their Radar Display that gives you an overview of the loudness landscape of any stereo audio signal. The main radar view shows you loudness history, while the outer ring displays momentary short-term loudness. Finally, True-peak Levels are shown in real-time on the right side of the user interface, completing the overview.
The LM2 plug-in supports all major plug-in formats, including AAX, RTAS and Audio Suite for Pro Tools as well as AU and VST on Mac or PC.
It supports both monitoring real-time audio signals, and performing off-line measuring in Pro Tools as an Audio Suite plug-in. Used this way, loudness measuring can be done much faster than in real-time – only the CPU of your computer sets the limit of off-line measurement speed.
