MeterPlugs has released Ian Shepherd’s Perception, a level-matching effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Ian Shepherd’s Perception, by MeterPlugs lets you bypass complex FX chains and make level-matched comparisons—quickly and easily. You can use it to compare the real impact of effects including EQ, compression, limiting and more, without being deceived by differences in volume. Plus, it shows you the effect that your plugins have on your music’s loudness and dynamics, and even allows you to compare different levels of compression.

In other words, Perception helps you make accurate, informed decisions about your music. It takes the “loudness deception” out of the equation so that you can focus on the sound of your music, rather than volume. Welcome to the future of mastering!
