Steinberg SLM 128 Loudness Meter
Steinberg presents the SLM 128 Loudness Meter, a VST 3 plug-in that offers EBU R 128-compliant loudness metering within Cubase 6 and Nuendo 5.
In the last decades, the loudness level of TV and radio commercials has increased — a phenomenon that is referred to as loudness war. In order to harmonize audio levels, the European Broadcast Union (EBU) has introduced the R 128 recommendation, a loudness measurement approach based on the new Loudness Unit Full Scale (LUFS). As of August 31, 2012, several broadcasters will only accept EBU R 128-compliant audio signals.
"That's why we decided to create a loudness metering tool which enables our customers to create R 128-compliant mixes," says Timo Wildenhain, product marketing manager at Steinberg.
The SLM 128 Loudness Meter is now available as free download from the Steinberg website.
