Free VST 3 Loudness Meter

Steinberg has released the SLM 128 Loudness Meter, a VST 3 plug-in that offers EBU R 128-compliant loudness metering within Cubase 6.5 and Nuendo 5 or higher.
Timo Wildenhain, product marketing manager at Steinberg, told Sonic State, "In the last decades, the loudness level of TV and radio commercials has seen a dramatic increase -- a phenomenon that is often referred to as loudness war. In order to harmonize audio levels, the European Broadcast Union (EBU) has introduced the R 128 recommendation, a loudness measurement approach based on the new Loudness Unit Full Scale (LUFS). As of August 31, 2012, many broadcasters will only accept EBU R 128-compliant audio signals. That's why we decided to create a loudness metering tool in the very short-term, which enables our customers to create R 128-compliant mixes."
Pricing and Availability:
The SLM 128 Loudness Meter is now available as free download from the Steinberg website. More information:
