is it fair to say that the first instance of the meter would act like a trim control? Also why can't I use the mono meter? is it not just a matter of setting the normal level at minus 18?david1103 wrote:this is the plugin for you!

there are 32/64 bit versions and its totally free
only use the stereo version, its set to default to 18dbFS = 0dbVU
just make it the first insert on your channel and adjust the big volume knob on the right until the needle is averaging around 0 on the dB meter... job done!
you only need one instance per track in the first insert or directly after the VSTi, this is your VU and trim control. ** note make sure to set the VU meter to show OUTPUT. otherwise you will not see the action of the volume knob and enter a world of confusion!xyxxjx wrote:is it fair to say that the first instance of the meter would act like a trim control?

i just had a memory (maybe incorrect) that the mono channel version was different with EQ functions and various complications. there is no reason not to use it other than the stereo version is perfect and you can use it on mono tracks anyway.
