Mastering The Mix has released an update to its Levels metering plugin that help you achieve a technically excellent mix.

The update includes changes to presets for Spotify and Youtube. With a new target loudness of -14 LUFS, producers can make their music more dynamic without worrying about competition with the louder tracks.

Mastering The Mix Levels 1.2

LEVELS allows you to easily and instantly see any technical issues with your mix, without the confusing visuals of existing metering solutions.

LEVELS only draws your attention to aspects of your mix that need fixing. Meaning you spend less time figuring out why your mix isn’t working and more time being creative.
