Nugen Audio has released an update to its LM-Correct loudness analysis and correction tool and Loudness Management Batch (LMB) processor, adding a dialogue gate option to both tools that enables sound engineers to measure dialogue sections within source material automatically.

LM-CorrectDialogue gating can be used to automate dialogue-anchored loudness measurement and correction, facilitating decisions based on the loudness of sections with dialogue in the source material. In conjunction with other loudness parameters, the dialogue measure can also be used as an indicator of dialogue clarity.

‘Dialogue-gated measurement adds an additional level of flexibility to our offline loudness tools,’ says Nugen Audio Creative Director, Jon Schorah. ‘We are committed to providing tools that meet ITU, ATSC (CALM Act) and EBU standards. A dialogue gate option ensures our users have the ongoing ability to comply automatically with the full range of broadcast delivery specifications, based on current international loudness standards.’

In addition to the dialog gate option, new presets within LM-Correct add a 10s loudness sliding window that works in conjunction with the dialogue-gated programme loudness. Similarly, LMB benefits from the addition of a fully adjustable short-term sliding window parameter, making it possible to adhere to specifications based upon variants of the typical EBU 3s measure.

The updates are free for all current users.
