Sonalksis FreeG Meter Issue

Post by akb44 » Wed Aug 11, 2010 3:41 am

I'm currently testing out FreeG. I'm noticing that the readings on the visual meter (as opposed to the numerical display of the peak value) seem to be a bit off. For example, when using FreeG in digital PPM mode and playing a sine wave, the bar graph of the volume will show the peak level recorded slightly below -17dB, while the numerical display will show the peak level recorded between -16 and -17. The numerical display matches up with my Ableton Live meters. Has anyone else encountered this issue, or am I perhaps reading something wrong?

It is because the latency of nebula which makes it not sync..... You can lower the latency of your soundcard and nebula as much as possible but it'll eat up more power of your pc as well.

This occurs even without Nebula, just using the -18dbFS test tone.
