Meter

Hi, pwnified. Any chance of getting a more accurate/easy to read meter? Ideally, I'd love it on the master bus.

Thanks for the suggestion. As it is now, the meters are peaking logrithmic and will always clip the bitspace when the red is reached, on a peak. So it's more of a visual indicator of clipping, since the final mix is normalized. So it's ok to go into the red on tracks, but the output mete going into the red will clip on a live output but no a mixdown.

But yes, it would be nice to have RMS meters combined with peaking, because peaking are not needed on tracks.

Thanks for the reply. I'm trying to match my output levels as closely as possible with the other DAW I use for the premastering stage. I think I can set MuktiTrack as an input and the other DAW as output in AudioBus, which would allow me to use the other DAW's meter. I searched the App Store and found quite a few analog style VU meters, which would be cool; but none of them work with AudioBus/IAA. O well.
