Pleasurize Music Foundation TT Dynamic Range Meter
The free TT Dynamic Range Meter plug-in (and stand-alone app.) is designed to make it possible to provide releases with a whole-number dynamic value to be printed on the recording medium as a logo, giving consumers a means of knowing the dynamic quality of a recording.
In January 2009, The Pleasurize Music Foundation launched an initiative for "ending the "Loudness War" being waged by successive music releases." This initiative aims to introduce a dynamic standard through several phases.
It is currently available as a VST effect plug-in for Windows with Mac OS X, RTAS and AU versions expected to be released later this year.
An online database is planned for providing information on music already released with the standard.
In this way, according to the Foundation, conditions have been met for the creation of a single standard for audio recorded media – a step which was taken by the film industry over thirty years ago.
Music with small dynamic range has a low value, for example DR4 (Dynamic Range = 4dB). Music with a large dynamic range has a higher DR value, for example DR14 or more.
