RTW Debuts Enhanced Loudness Control Technology

RTW, a provider of visual audio meters and monitoring devices for professional broadcast, highlighted its range of loudness metering and measurement solutions, in particular its newly upgraded Continuous Loudness Control (CLC) software Version 2.0, at AES 2016.

With the release of version 2.0, RTW’s CLC now offers improved loudness processing with various enhancements of its superior processing algorithm. The feature set of the software is also strengthened with a number of new options, including batch processing of audio files, extended audio format, a new expert mode, Mmax and Smax limiting, report functions, and optimized presets for streaming audio and support for the latest updates of loudness standards.

Along with the CLC’s optimized presets that are sufficient for the majority of users, custom presets are still available. Running within a DAW or as a standalone application, the CLC software is available for PC and Mac systems. Common plugin formats are supported, including AAX, VST2, VST3, RTAS and AU.

RTW also debuted its MM3 MusicMeter to the U.S. market. This new addition gives users the ability to implement loudness metering into music-based applications with flexibility and ease.

The MM3 MusicMeter features superior accuracy and provides the user with vectorscope, PPM/TruePeak or VU, real-time analyzers, Loudness vs. Time charts, along with numerical and graphical loudness display and zoom modes, all with a simple swipe of the screen. With the ability to view the display in both vertical and horizontal modes, the MM3 MusicMeter can fit into any workflow. In addition to the available features, the MM3 supports audio inputs including analog, SPDIF and USB, while an SPDIF output delivers a buffered stereo signal or downmix from a 5.1 stream.

RTW’s MM3 MusicMeter is compatible with the company’s USB Connect software package, which offers a direct audio signal transfer and additional control from within a DAW environment.

RTW’s MM3 MusicMeter is currently shipping.
