Clarity of Control
Clarity X users already love our elegant, programmable remote control and our Icon App for Mac and PC. The new App gives you scalable views, greater ease of control, and extended features for iPad, Mac and PCs.
Not only can you customize your metering views, we've even added more meter types, like the LRA+I, a combination of Loudness Range and Program Loudness. You can also see Short Term Loudness and Program Loudness in a single view.
The Clarity X Metering App lets you build your own metering views, with multiple meters, for any specialized mix scenario.
To streamline your work, we've also included a combined speaker select and SPL meter as well as a speaker select and Sweetspot select view.
We've even extended the feature set of the Clarity X Remote. Not only does the app display the functions currently assigned to each of the Remote keys (F1, F2 and F3), it adds two additional function keys: F4 and F5.
You can combine the advanced True-Peak meter with the hearing-loss preventing Dose meter and the all-new Loudness Range & Program Loudness meter.
Or, the essential Loudness Statistics with a Speaker View and a precision SPL meter. We think you'll be amazed at all the possibilities…
Assign input meters and switches to the main slot and the two mini slots.
Define your layout and switch between your configured screen sets.

Meter Combination Example 1
Loudness Radar Meter
The Loudness Radar is an essential when it comes to checking the loudness of your mix. With the short term loudness history on the scope, the radar helps you get the levels just right, while the momentary loudness in the outer ring lets you keep an eye on your instant loudness.
Speaker Selection and Sweet Spots
Switch individual speakers on and off as you monitor your mix. Using the sweet spot selector you can direct the sound to your listening position at the mixing desk or either of your calibrated sweet spots.
Use the SPL meter to inspect the sound pressure level in your studio.
Source Peak Meter
The Source Peak Meter displays the content of your source channels, helping you verify the channel order of your audio. This is useful for troubleshooting no or unexpected sound.
Meter Combination Example 2
This simple view shows the short term and program loudness. The short term measure helps you make the right mix decisions, while the program loudness helps you comply with international broadcast standards.
Speaker Selection and SPL
With an SPL readout in combination with the speaker/ phones selection, you can control the sound pressure level in your studio while listening to individual or groups of speakers.
Even though you probably put most of your work into your surround mix, most end listeners are still mainly listening on their stereo speakers in the living room. The Stereo Deviation Meter shows shows how well your surround mix translates into stereo, helping you avoid bad downmix suprises.
When your client or colleague stops by to listen along to your mix, the sweet spot switch lets you easily select his position in the room.
Meter Combination Example 3
The stats meter makes the details of the mix easy to grasp. Its exact readout gives you loudness statistics like Program Loudness, True-Peak Max and LRA. The important Peak to Loudness Ratio (PLR) gives a good indication of how squashed or dynamic your mix is.
The mini Dose Meter shows your daily sound exposure and warns you when you should start paying attention to your mix levels or take a break. The meter can be set to measure in either percent or dB(A), giving you two easy ways to prevent listening fatigue.
The Center Ratio Meter displays the balance between the center channel and the rest of your surround mix. Since speech most often is in the center channel, the meter reveals how well the speech blends into the rest of your mix.
Meter Combination Example 4
The True-Peak meter trumps the traditional sample-peak meter by unveiling peaks in between actual samples. It identifies potential clipping in codecs and digital-to-analog converters and displays the decibel on a 7.1 graph with various scales to choose from. In other words, the True-Peak meter warns you when your levels are heating up and helps you avoid unwanted distortion.
Dose Meter gives you the tool to prevent listening fatigue by keeping track of your daily audio dose - even when switching between sources, formats and speaker sets/ headphones. The meter warns you as you're moving towards the danger zone, providing you with a reliable hint of when to call it a day.
Easy access to headphones and each of the three speaker sets.
The LRA+I Meter gives you a combined view of your Loudness Range (LRA) and Program Loudness (I).
One Size Doesn't Fit All
The Clarity X Metering App comes with a resizable view on both Mac and PC. This allows you to scale up your metering while fitting the meters nicely to your screen and workflow.
Ensuring full usability, this helps you make the most of whatever display you're currently using - both in the studio and when you're on the move.
As you adapt the view to your screen, the app keeps everything in place and makes sure you never lose sharpness in the readouts.
Clarity X Remote's Best Friend
The function keys of your remote can be programmed to do almost anything. For instance, you can use one function key to reset your Radar Meter while another engages Noise Floor Zoom.
The metering app shows you which actions your keys are assigned to and gives you two additional function keys.
Clarity X Metering App also displays the output level of your mix either as an absolute SPL value or the SPL relative to the calibrated levels of your speakers.
