Giving you access you multiple metering options including a wide range of customization, the DP Meter Pro Audio Meter and Side-Chaining Plug-In from Blue Cat Audio features peak, RMS, and crest factor meters in addition to side-chaining control capabilities via MIDI and automation outputs. 5 different metering scales, including Bob Katz's K-System are included by default, with support for creation of your own scales. Your track's statistics are visualized in colored displays with histograms to track its progress over time.
