Audio Pluggers becomes MeterPlugs + K-Meter x64 released

MeterPlugs (formerly Audio Pluggers) has announced the release of K-Meter x64, a 64-bit VST version of K-Meter for Windows.

K-Meter is a vintage-styled meter that helps audio engineers properly level their content. It encourages dynamic, consistent and natural sounding recordings by focusing on average levels instead of peak levels. Audio that is leveled in this way is less prone to unwanted distortion and clipping. This leads to a more enjoyable and less irritating listening experience.

MeterPlugs K-Meter is a fully-compliant K-System meter for Windows and Mac.

K-Meter features

  • Supports ITU BS.1770 loudness metering, which weights frequencies based on how loud they would be perceived by a person.
  • Accurately detects inter-sample peaks by up-sampling the audio signal by up to 4 times its original frequency.
  • Includes a pink noise generator that can be used to calibrate studio monitors.
  • Available on both Mac OS X and Windows XP/Vista/7 in 32-bit and 64-bit builds. VST and Audio Unit formats are available.

K-Meter is available to purchase for $49 USD.

Audio Pluggers K-Meter, K-System based metering

Audio Pluggers has released a beta of K-Meter, a metering plug-in featuring upsampled peak detection, perceived loudness metering, K-System compatibility, and pink noise monitor calibration.

By using the K-System and K-Meter, audio engineers can ensure that their mixes reproduce accurately on a variety of playback systems, from theaters to MP3 players. K-Meter’s perceived loudness meter models the ear’s sensitivity to different frequencies, giving you a much more accurate indication of loudness than conventional meters. Combine this with the ability to detect inter-sample peaks, and you can be confident that your mixes are of the highest quality.
