Designed to show mastering engineers the truth about the level and loudness of audio content, the SONORIS Meter plug-in displays peak and loudness levels in high resolution on the same scale, without bogging down the host CPU. Not only does it offer traditional scaling, it also features K-System metering (created by the legendary Bob Katz) with K-20, K-14, and K-12 settings to suit various genres and preferences.

Choose between RMS and Leq(A) loudness measurement modes, and even customize the number of consecutive overs before clipping appears on the resettable indicators. Sample-accurate peak metering and an intersample peak-metering mode ensure precise viewing of preclipping transients, while the built-in correlation meter allows easy visual monitoring of the program material's phase coherency. With configurable pink-noise output options, the Meter plug-in can also be used for monitor calibration. SONORIS Meter can be loaded into VST-compatible host software on Windows systems.

High-Resolution Metering
With the SONORIS Meter, you can measure peak and loudness levels of audio signals in high resolution, simultaneously at one scale. The end product closely follows the K-system specifications, including Leq (A-weighted) loudness metering and band-limited pink-noise monitor calibration.
Oversampling Peak Meter Mode
SONORIS Meter features an oversampling peak meter mode. In this mode, the plug-in catches intersample peaks that can cause ear fatiguing when audio is played on consumer CD players. Many CD players have inferior D/A converters with little headroom that will distort with samples above the clip level. These peaks occur when the audio is clipped or otherwise digitally manipulated. In oversampling mode, the plug-in models the D/A conversion process and allows for maximizing the level but without this distortion.
Correlation Meter
At the bottom of the interface, a correlation meter can be found. This meter enables you to monitor the phase relationship between the left and right channels.
The K-System
In addition to offering regular metering, the SONORIS Meter makes use of the K-System, created by heralded mastering engineer Bob Katz. The main advantage of this system is that you always work at the same monitor level, and the chosen setting (K-20, K-14, or K-12) defines how much headroom there is available. This allows you to be more consistent in your mastering.
Clip Indicators
Featuring resettable indicators for clipping and clipping incident counters, plus an adjustable number of consecutive overs before clipping, the SONORIS Meter gives you full control over clipping displays.
Additional Features

  • 64-bit resolution
  • All sample rates supported
  • Low CPU load
  • Mousewheel support
  • Settings can be saved
