reFuse Software has announced announced the sequel of last year’s free Halloween-themed metering plugin for macOS and Windows.

Spooky Meter 2 is “100% spookier and meterier than the original”. The plugin features 5 creepy heads which provide you with peak metering at 0, -6, -12, -24, and -36 dB thresholds.

The red devil at the top also functions as a peak hold – it will remain lit if the signal peaks hit 0 dB, until reset by clicking anywhere in the window.

The hypnotic background spiral animation can be changed to different modes using the popup menu at the top of the plugin window. The spiral can be set for slow or fast spin rates, or its motion can be turned off. Or, use the Variable option to cause the spiral’s speed to change dynamically, triggered by the input peak levels.

Available in VST3, AU and AAX formats, the plugin is available to download for free through November 2nd, 2022.
