We constantly develop new tools – so check this website every now and then. One of the more sophisticated loudness meters. Allows you to set a target loudness and moves the 0 point of the meters accordingly. Based on the design of classic VU meters of their time. I personally use this as slow RMS meter, very useful for balancing the louder parts of songs within the context of album mastering.
“The VU Meter plug-in provides the best of both worlds for your signal metering needs: Analog-style VU meters (with clip indicators), and LED-segment-style peak meters. VU meters are most useful for showing overall signal level, and peak meters (akin to the channel meters in the Studio One Console) are most useful for keeping track of peak signal levels. By referencing both of these, you can see a more nuanced picture of your signal—overall level and peak level.
A stereo correlation meter rounds out the trio, giving you insight into the left/right phase relationship of your signal.
This free standalone VU Meter plug-in is made from the same components used in the Channel Strip Collection.

LVC-Audio has released LVC-Meter, a freeware audio metering utility in VST, VST3, AU, and AAX plugin formats for digital audio workstations on Windows and OS X.
LVC-Meter is a versatile multi-mode audio metering tool based on the technology used in LVC-Audio’s previous plugins like Limited-Z (freeware) and Clipped-MAX. The plugin features a real-time frequency spectrum analyzer, a stereo vectorscope, and a waveform history view. It supports multiple metering modes like K-System metering, standard dBFS mode, and EBU mode. All metering modes feature true-peak monitoring to determine intersample peak levels. The plugin detects overs and informs the user when inter-sample peaking is present.
It’s worth noting that LVC-Meter isn’t just a metering tool. The plugin can be used to control the gain, stereo balance, and stereo width of the analyzed audio signal. Right-clicking the Gain and Balance control knobs will reveal a drop-down menu with the advanced controls for A/B testing and more precise fine-tuning.
In addition to its robust audio metering and analysis features, LVC-Meter also offers a highly customizable and intuitive user interface. The user can configure the spectrum analyzer display by adjusting the window type, the FFT size, and overlap. The interface is also freely resizable with adjustable colors. LVC-Meter sports an XML-based preset management system for saving and importing custom settings.
LVC-Audio is currently running a sale with up to 50% OFF in discounts on various products. The deal was extended until April 30.
