TC Electronic tells us that their Radar Loudness Meter is now available as a native plug-in, supporting VST, AU, RTAS and AAX formats.Here's what they have to say about it...
Our acclaimed radar display has proven an efficient solution when upgrading audio production for broadcast, film and music from unsatisfactory peak level indicators to loudness-based metering. With the introduction of the new LM6 Radar Loudness Meter plug-in, you can now benefit from having direct access to this revolutionary meter, which covers all mono, stereo and 5.1 productions, whether you prefer using Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Nuendo, Wavelab, Cubase, Sequoia, etc. on a Mac or PC.
The user interface of the LM6 plug-in is similar to TC radar meters for other platforms, for instance LM5D for Pro Tools HD, employing a fully synchronous, high-headroom design in order to also display true-peak warnings and true-peak bar graphs correctly. If you are already familiar with the radar, you will be able to move seamlessly between platforms.
LM6 conforms with all of the major broadcast standards based on Leq(K) – e.g. ITU BS.1770-2, ATSC A/85 and EBU R128 (August 2011 update) and will show you loudness history as well as momentary loudness and true-peak metering in a single, easy-to-read view.
The LM6 Radar Loudness Meter plug-in is available for DAW platforms supporting Audio Units, AAX, RTAS and VST plug-in formats. No additional hardware such as Pro Tools TDM or PowerCore is required – the only piece of hardware you need is an iLok 2 USB Key for holding the plug-in license. In fact, if you own an iLok 2 USB Key, you can try out the LM6 plug-in for 14 days free of charge.
Quite simply, with LM6 you gain access to the ultimate Loudness Meter, allowing you to deliver loudness-correct content and getting it right from the start! Pricing and Availability:
