Waves Delivers VU Meter as a Plug-in

Waves Audio is now shipping the Waves VU Meter, a software plugin to help engineers set proper recording levels and to mix with adequate headroom and a well-balanced gain structure. 

With smoothness and perfect ballistic response that equals the best hardware VU meters, the Waves VU Meter plugin will help maintain proper gain staging for a clear and spacious mix. Load the Waves VU Meter on any or all tracks while recording, in order to make sure your recording levels are not too hot, or, insert it on the master buss and pin it to the computer screen for a precise visual reference of the mix’s overall levels.

Waves VU meter features meter average levels to achieve a well-balanced mix, accurate ballistic response with smooth movement and fast refresh rate, headroom calibration from four to 26 dB and a classic console VU meter design.
