FreeG ~ Fader Plug-in


The Sonalksis FreeG is everything you need in a master fader. A simple, but absolutely indispensable plug-in, the FreeG extends the functionality of a typical audio host by providing a large-format style fader, along with ultra accurate metering. FreeG helps to maximise workflow with extended, customizable metering, and multiple control features and settings.

When working with digital audio, a lack of fine metering and extended signal flow control in the host is a common issue. FreeG helps to improve workflow in the host by providing these features in the insert chain. By delivering enhanced control of amplitude, phase and pan (stereo version) in the insert chain as well as fine metering, with user configurable industry standard ballistic options, the freeG is the perfect master control.

Features:

  • Long-throw fader
  • Ultra accurate metering
  • Multiple metering ballistic types
  • Peak and RMS readouts
  • Pre/Post metering options
  • Selectable Pan-Law
  • ‘Fine’ mode for sensitive calibration of the master fader
  • Mono-compatible for use in tracking situations
  • VST and Audio Unit (32 and 64 bit)

VSLM ~ Virtual Sound Level Meter


This project is the MATLAB development of a virtual sound level meter. The program will read in a calibrated .wav file and allow the user to analyze it as one would analyze a sound field with a sound level meter. The software implements Fast, Slow, Impulse and LEQ; A, C and Flat Weighting; Ln and Noise Dose analysis; Octave and 1/3 Octave band analysis; high resolution FFT analysis and spectrograms. Band analysis can be made using fast FFT methods or slower, but ANSI standard methods.

Source code requires MATLAB + Signal Processing Toolbox.
Developed under MATLAB R2010a (but might work with some earlier versions)

Executable version does not require MATLAB and runs under Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7.

Features

  • MATLAB Based Software Sound Analyzer
  • Mimics results of an ANSI Standard Integrating Sound Level Meter
  • Includes Lp, LEQ, Octave and 1/3 Octave Band, NC, RC and FFT Analysis

ORBAN Loudness Meter ~ Loudness & Peak Display


This software simultaneously displays instantaneous peaks, VU, PPM, CBS Technology Center loudness, and ITU BS.1770 loudness. All meters include peak-hold functionality that makes the peak indications of the meters easy to see.

The software accepts two-channel stereo inputs. The VU and PPM meters are split to indicate the left and right channels. The PPM meter also displays the instantaneous peak values of the L and R digital samples. ~ Hydrogen Audio

PeppyMeter ~ Linux Analog VU Meter


PeppyMeter is a software VU Meter written in Python. It was originally developed as the new ‘VU Meter’ screensaver for Peppy Player. With minor modifications it became a stand-alone application. PeppyMeter gets audio data from media players (e.g. mpd) via fifo and displays current volume levels in a Graphical User Interface in the form of a traditional VU Meter.

  • Written in Python.
  • Pygame library leveraged for UI purposes.
  • UI is available in three resolutions 800×480, 480×320 and 320×240 pixels.
  • The input for the program is the data from the named pipe. That signal should be provided by peppyalsa plugin.
  • Supplies 9 default meters out of the box.
  • Allows you to add your own meters.
  • Open-source. All source files are available on Github.
  • Several data sources are available for testing and tuning.
  • Provides four types of output: Display, Serial, I2C and PWM.
