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

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.
