MeterPlugs has announced the release of the LCAST Loudness Meter effect plug-in for broadcast.
LCAST supports all the major loudness specs and has easy-to-use presets for the most popular ones.
LCAST makes it easy to take loudness measurements and supports the latest loudness standards, ATSC A/85, EBU R128 and ITU BS.1770-2, which aim to eliminate loud commercials and improve audio quality in broadcast.
If you are working with mono and stereo programmes, LCAST Stereo gives you everything you need to ensure your programmes meet broadcast requirements:
support for ATSC A/85, EBU R128 and ITU BS.1770-2;
loudness history plot, which shows you how loudness loudness–momentary, short-term and integrated–changes over time (up to 24 hours);
loudness range display;
custom loudness variance measurement, which shows you how dynamic your audio is;
true-peak metering for each channel;
overload indicators with adjustable threshold;
gated and un-gated loudness; and
custom color regions in the history plot.
LCAST Surround includes all the same features but gives you surround sound, up to 5.1 channels. It also includes loudness logging, a powerful feature that allows you to export all loudness data recorded by LCAST into a CSV file, which can be opened in a 3rd party app like Microsoft Excel. This gives you the flexibility to create custom reports, perform additional processing and integrate LCAST into your workflow.
LCAST for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $199 USD (Stereo) / $399 USD (Surround).
IK Multimedia has announced the release of ARC 2, an update for the acoustic correction system that combines a measurement microphone, measurement software and a correction plug-in for most popular DAWs to improve the acoustics and sonic reliability of your studio.
ARC works by measuring your room using the included measurement microphone and measurement software and then generates an algorithm to provide a correction of your room’s acoustic problems that you can apply to your mix using the included plug-in.
You can record and mix with confidence knowing that what you hear from your speakers is a faithful representation of how your music will translate to the outside world.
The ARC advanced room correction system just got more advanced.
New in ARC 2
Completely redesigned interface for improved usability.
Smoother, more natural sound in the mid-range and high frequencies.
New combined L/R correction option maintains focus in perfectly symmetrical control rooms.
New customizable target curves now can match engineers’ personal timbre tastes.
New “Alt References” templates mimic the sound of consumer listening devices like car systems, speaker boxes, etc. allowing the engineer to test how mixes translate on different systems.
New Monitor Control panel interface streamlines workflow.
Fewer measurements now provide higher quality results and shortens set-up time.
Measurements can be saved and used for multiple correction set-ups.
ARC 2 is available to purchase for $299.99 USD / €249.99 EUR. Registered ARC users can update to ARC 2 for the introductory price of $99.99 USD / €84.99 EUR until August 31, 2012 (regular $149.99 USD / €124.99 EUR). Prices exc. taxes.
