LoudMax developer Thomas Mundt has released version 1.08 of LUveler, a loudness and dynamics modification plugin compatible with the ITU-R BS.1770 specification.

It provides a precise reduction of the dynamics and works as transparently as possible to maintain the sound quality even under heavy use of its compressors and limiters.

This allows a wide range of applications, such as matching dynamic material produced according to the EBU R 128 to a much louder platform. Or the automatic leveling of a podcast. Or simply increasing or decreasing loudness without changing the dynamic range. High-quality true peak limiters avoid exceeding the maximum level.

LUveler is free to download as a LADSPA plugin for Windows and Linux, and a 32/64-bit VST version for Windows is available as well.
