Perspective

 

Our LM2 Radar Loudness Meter is a native plug in that measures Loudness and True-Peak on stereo tracks in all major DAWs.

What sets LM2 apart from all other loudness meters is the innovative Radar Display that allows you to capture the essence of your loudness landscape at a glance: Loudness History, Momentary Loudness, True-peak Level, Program Loudness and Loudness Range (LRA) in a single view.

In short, the Radar Loudness Meter lets you use your eyes as well as your ears to reach the result you need.

Offline Measuring

If you use it in Pro Tools as an Audio Suite plug-in, you can even benefit from the off-line function and measure the loudness of your audio faster than real time.

Below, you can see how off-line measuring works with AudioSuite. Note how the tracks get measured much faster than real time and how the radar display reflects the overall loudness landscape almost instantly.

Also, even in offline mode, a log file of the measurement results is created for your documenting needs.
