Martin Zuther has released version 1.22 of K-Meter, a free software tool for metering and monitoring audio levels.
Implementation of a K-System meter according to Bob Katz’ specifications.
All meters and counters have been thoroughly validated. So far, K-Meter only supports mono and stereo signals, but I have added experimental support for surround sound. I’d love to get some feedback on this.
The K-System average meters register RMS only, but support of ITU BS.1770-1 loudness weighting is planned.
Changes in K-Meter v1.22
- Windows: run-time dynamic linking to FFTW, releases include FFTW DLL.
- Windows: stand-alone application (ASIO, DirectX).
- Manual with full documentation.
- Another complete re-validation of K-Meter.
- Validation is now possible directly from within K-Meter.
- Wave files and instructions for validation of peak meter, overflow counter, phase correlation meter and stereo meter; corresponding fixes.
- Experimental support for 5.1 surround sound.
- Changed overflow detection.
- Notify host of plug-in latency.
- Silenced output for unsupported sample rates.
