Maat DRMeter Mk.IIMaat Incorporated has released the DRMeter Mk.II, cross platform plug–in for measuring and monitoring audio loudness and dynamics, introducing new features to the loudness metering marketplace. It is the first loudness measurement tool specifically designed for music creation as well as broadcast production and post.

Available for all major DAWs, DRMeter Mk.II follows Maat’s original DRMeter, targeting engineers working in all audio industries from mainstream music production, content streaming, radio/television broadcast to gaming, theatrical, industrial and AR/VR. Measurement methods now include all international loudness metrics, as well as Maat’s DR Dynamic Range ad hoc standard for judging ‘dynamic density’, the amount of dynamic contrast in a recording.

DRMeter Mk.II is the first loudness meter that combines high accuracy R128 and A/85 conformance with elements crafted expressly for music creation. It is the only loudness meter that displays channel-specific trends by augmenting EBU-mandated monaural measurements with classic LR metering for Max Short Term, Max Momentary and True Peak, to identify trends and channel–specific issues without the need for an additional meter. It is also the first plug–in to offer both the emerging PSR metric, Sample Peak–to–Short–term Loudness Ratio, and official DRi, integrated DR formerly available only in Maat’s DROffline batch measurement utility.

Continuing to lead the Loudness measurement community, DRMeter Mk.II premiers Dynamic Deviation, offering lucid loudness management when mixing and mastering for different loudness-normalised distribution platforms from Spotify through Apple Music to YouTube. In addition, DRMeter Mk.II introduces DualVu, displaying both relative and absolute scales simultaneously so audio artistry is less hindered by adherence to a Loudness target.

The DRMeter Mk.II’s MfiT (Mastered for iTunes) monitoring and metering feature eases seamless levelling for streaming music delivery. Multiple metering modes are visible simultaneously, and there are presets for all major streaming services and broadcast standards.

‘We’ve brought fresh new thinking to Loudness measurement by removing some of the cognitive barriers to creativity,’ says Maat co-founder and CEO Friedemann Tischmeyer has. ‘Our one plug–in does it all with easy to understand, intuitive Loudness metering for every engineer, regardless of what job walks in the door. DRMeter Mk.II truly is the one meter for all of us.’

The DRMeter Mk.II is available from Maat and pro audio distributors for US$129.
