Device Overview

Name/Version: Loudness Meter 1.0.0
Author: Funkatronics  
Description: Loudness Meter is a tool for measuring the perceived loudness of your audio according to the ITU-R BS.1770 program loudness and true-peak audio level algorithm. It includes both short-term and integrated loudness measurements, as well as loudness range and true peak. The algorithm has been implemented without the use of ANY externals, and has been tested with the EBU loudness test set for compliance with EBU Tech-3341. Any sampling rate is supported, although very high sampling rates (>96000) introduce a small amount of error in the measurement.

Both momentary and short-term loudness are plotted over the past 10 seconds on the devices display (momentary in blue and short term in red). A histogram of the measured loudness (since the last reset) is displayed vertically alongside this plot in red.

No more guessing if your track is too loud or quiet, or if it will clip or be normalized when streamed online! Simply add Loudness Meter to your mastering chain and play through your material of interest to obtain a measurement. Stopping Live's transport will pause the measurement system, and everything can be reset at any time using the small "R" button on the top-left corner of the histogram.

simply WOW & thanks!!!!

This is awesome, thank you so much!

Awesome ! Thank you !

This is fantastic! Thank you!

Thanks a lot.

Awesome. I haven't compared with commercial 3rd party plugins yet, but empirically the measurements look correct.
What about making it as a floating window?

@Crampe I implemented the algorithm EXACTLY as described in the ITU-R 1770.4 and EBU 128 papers. It has been tested with the test files provided on the EBU website. Feel free to download those test files and check for yourself!

A floating window is a great idea! Ill see if I can implement this in the near future.

Thank you!

Thanks for the heads up Funkatronics.
It's easy to patch a floating window. I'll let you know if take a moment to do it before you do.
