Martin Zuther updates traKmeter to v1.05.0

Martin Zuther traKmeter

Martin Zuther has released version 1.05.0 of traKmeter, a free loudness meter effect plug-in.

Most digital audio equipment sadly only has peak meters. This is readily understandable as you want to avoid digital clippings by all means. However, the lack of average meters makes correct gain staging almost impossible.

For gain staging, you need average meters or – even better – a combination of peak and average meters. And this is were traKmeter comes in.

traKmeter has an average level meter that is centered around -20 dB FS RMS and a peak level meter that is aligned to -9 dB FS. It supports stereo and 8-channel audio signals, has two scales, two ballistics modes and is very easy to use. Additionally, all meters have been thoroughly validated.

Changes in traKmeter v1.05.0

  • LV2 plug-in (GNU/Linux).
  • Experimental 64-bit version for Windows.
  • Display maximum level on overload.
  • Smooth switching of crest factor.
  • Full re-calibration.

The traKmeter plug-in for Windows and Linux (VST/LV2/Standalone) is available to download free of charge.

Tracktion Software announces Linux Support (Public Beta)

Tracktion Software has announced that a public beta for its Tracktion 4 music production software is now available for Linux.

Tracktion 4 in Linux
Tracktion for Linux features 64-bit performance, compatible with all native Linux VST and LADSPA (no GUI) plug-ins.

Continuing the momentum that began with a brand re-launch and release of Tracktion 4 last January, followed by a recent bundling agreement with Behringer, Tracktion Software Corporation (TSC) is pleased to announced yet another milestone for their popular music creation software.

Beginning immediately, Tracktion 4 is available for 64-bit Linux systems. This release—along with the current 64 and 32-bit versions available for Mac and Windows—solidifies Tracktion’s position within a very small family of music creation applications to broadly support all three of the major operating systems.

“Linux users, much like Tracktion users, have always been on the cutting edge of technology and willing to look beyond the status quo for alternative solutions,” explained Julian Storer, creator and chief developer of Tracktion software. “In that spirit, bringing Tracktion to Linux just makes sense. I’m extremely excited to open a whole new community to the joy of music creation in their preferred environment.”

With a powerful and elegant single-screen interface, Tracktion forgoes the complex, multi-screened designs that have been standard for conventional DAW’s since developers first digitized tape-based workflows over 20 years ago. Tracktion replaces this paradigm of the past with a modern, drag-and-drop interface that dramatically simplifies the recording, editing and mixing process. Truly unique, Tracktion has earned a loyal following of users who appreciate its power, simplicity and unique ability to unburden the creative process.

Tracktion 4 for Mac, Windows and Linux is available to purchase $59.99 USD. An upgrade from previous versions is $29.99 USD.

The Tracktion 4 Linux version is initially free to everyone during the current public beta phase at www.tracktion.com/linux (scroll to bottom of page). Tracktion 4 is also free with the purchase of select interfaces, mixers and control surfaces from Behringer and Mackie.
