Audio Pluggers K-Meter Beta

Audio Pluggers is pleased to announce the release of K-Meter beta, a level-metering software plug-in. By using the K-System and K-Meter, audio engineers can ensure that their mixes reproduce accurately on a variety of playback systems, from theaters to MP3 players. K-Meter’s perceived loudness meter models the ear’s sensitivity to different frequencies, giving you a much more accurate indication of loudness than conventional meters. Combine this with the ability to detect inter-sample peaks, and you can be confident that your mixes are of the highest quality.

Audio Pluggers is a new software company focused on providing audio engineers with quality tools that improve their workflows and eliminate overhead. Driven by the desire to invest in R&D while providing excellent customer service, Audio Pluggers aims to be a source of trusted solutions amongst audio professionals.

  • High quality pink noise generator for monitor calibration.
  • Clip indicators with user controlled clip sensitivity.
  • Supports 32-bit and 64-bit DAWs.
  • SIMD optimizations that utilize AltiVec and SSE when available.
