Loudness Toolkit 2 And Upgrades Coming From NUGEN

NUGEN Audio announces major new release of Loudness Toolkit, including upgrades to VisLM, LM-Correct and ISL.

Following extensive development and consultation with the post-production community, NUGEN Audio has announced Loudness Toolkit 2. Available in April 2015, this will be a significant upgrade for the company’s loudness measurement and correction suite.

The Loudness Toolkit 2 will include the VisLM-H meter, LM-Correct quick-fix tool, and ISL true peak limiter, and will feature upgrades that make it an even more powerful workflow companion for NLE and DAW users. Within the Loudness Toolkit 2, NUGEN Audio is also making its industry-leading DynApt dynamic adaptation technology available as a time-saving extension for LM-Correct, enabling streamlined LRA targeting.

Previously only available in the company’s LMB Processor for server-side batch file processing, the new DynApt extension places NUGEN Audio’s proprietary, highly efficient, and reliable time-saving method of advanced LRA targeting at the fingertips of every editor. The extension will bring the huge time-saving benefit of automated dialog clarity preservation to every seat and will make it easier to repurpose audio dynamics for a specific playout LRA target, such as TV, radio, Internet streaming, or podcast.

The NUGEN Audio Loudness Toolkit 2, including upgraded versions of VisLM-H, ISL, and LM-Correct, will be available in April 2015. Pricing will be announced at a later date. Clients who have purchased the current version of the Loudness Toolkit, VisLM, ISL, or LM-Correct after Jan. 1, 2015, will receive complimentary upgrades to the new versions. In addition, special pricing will be offered to all current Loudness Toolkit owners upon the release of the Loudness Toolkit 2.

Enhancements to the VisLM-H visual loudness meter include a timecode and loudness profile memory function that tracks and retains the timecode and loudness profile so that the overall loudness measurement can be updated automatically at any time. This profile can be saved with the session, eliminating re-measuring and rebooting delays.

An all-new Program Loudness Over-dub Mode for enhanced workflow efficiency memorizes the program loudness profile so that only changes need to be measured. The changes are integrated automatically and intelligently with the memorized loudness profile to provide accurate program loudness readings on the fly.

A new user interface and display includes waveform visualization and innovative new readouts that indicate surround ducking and steering. The UI also now includes horizontal compact view and vertical view modes.

Supported plug-in formats for VisLM-H and ISL include AAX, RTAS, VST2, VST3, and AU. VisLM-H and LM-Correct are also available as stand-alone products and as Avid Audio suite plug-ins.
