Radar Loudness Meter for Native DAWs!

Every day, millions of people adjust their level controls over and over. Why? Because of the most fundamental audio issue of all – the control of loudness.

Rather than just measuring peak levels, the TC Electronic LM6 combines frequency weighting with an energy-integrated measure of sound, or equivalent continuous sound level, abbreviated Leq. Broadcast has standardized on Leq(K) for measuring loudness, and for the balancing of programs.

The user interface of the LM6 plug-in is similar to TC radar meters for other platforms, such as the LM5D for Pro Tools HD. Users familiar with the radar will therefore be able to move seamlessly between platforms.

LM6 shows loudness history in a single, easy-to-read, radar-like view. Each radar revolution can span from one minute to 24 hours. Two readings may be selected for display below the radar, for instance Loudness Range and Program Loudness, while all measurements are retained on the Stats page. Loudness history and other key information can be logged as a standard formatted text file that may accompany a program for proof of delivery spec compliance.

LM6 employs a fully synchronous, high-headroom design in order to also display true-peak warnings and true-peak bar graphs correctly, and it 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).

The LM6 Radar Loudness Meter plug-in is available for DAW platforms supporting Audio Units, RTAS or VST plug-in formats. No additional hardware such as Pro Tools TDM or PowerCore is required – the only piece of hardware needed is an iLok 2 USB Key for holding the plug-in license.
