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.

Loudness Radar Meter Features
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.
Works with your DAW
LM2 supports all modern plug-in standards, giving you freedom to work with DAW.
- AAX (Pro Tools)
- RTAS (Pro Tools)
- VST (Nuendo, Cubase, Audition, Premiere etc.)
- Audio Units (Mac applications such as Logic or Final Cut Pro X)
- Displays real-time Loudness (LKFS, LUFS or LU) and True-peak level Loudness history in a single, easy-to-read, radar-like view.
- The angular, color-coded display makes it easy for you to balance audio visually.
- The True-peak level display warns you when excessive level is at the risk of creating distortion in downstream equipment such as data reduction codecs or converters.
- TC Loudness and True-Peak measuring algorithms known from highly acclaimed hardware such as System 6000, DB-series
- TouchMonitor compliant with all current ITU, EBU and ATSC specifications Continuously updated as new loudness standards evolve
- International standards presets for easy recall
- Works coherently with TC equipment - as well as equipment of other brands adhering to the BS.1770-2 standard.

In the Press
Our history in digital audio dates back to 1985 and as pioneers in loudness, we took part in research studies and the definition of international broadcast standards right from the start.
Over the years, we have even donated technology that is now part of these open, international standards.
That is why world-leading broadcast magazines often invite
us to share our knowledge with their readers.
