We invented DR Dynamic Range. Accept no imitations!
MAAT’s DRMeter is the universal real time dynamic range metering plug-in
companion to our official DROffline batch measurement utility.
The best selling DRMeter from MAAT offers essential options for musically responsive, real time level metering. These include graphical and numeric estimation of DR dynamic range, plus measurement of SPPM Peak, RMS amplitude, digital overs and “digital black.” Our DRMeter release was MAAT’s first step in bringing forward the legacy of the PMF’s legendary TT Dynamic Range Meter, certainly the most popular metering plug—in of the last decade and one that engendered many inaccurate imitators. Inspiring music producers and artists worldwide for more dynamic music releases, DRMeter’s carefully tuned ballistics contributed to the original TT’s broad acceptance. Tested against the original TT DR Meter to ensure a consistent user experience, DRMeter is modern, supporting all major plug-in formats including VST 2/VST 3 and AAX for macOS and Windows plus UB2 Audio Units for macOS.
Our groundbreaking follow–on to DRMeter, DRMeter MkII features all modern metering algorithms, including true DRi and all EBU R 128 and ATSC A/85–mandated metrics along with some new thinking and measurements from the AES designed specifically for music mixers.
The DR meter is back! In conjunction with the PMF, we are the guys behind the Pleasurize Music Foundation, our geeks have sweated the details; testing and tweaking to make sure that you get the same familiar and much loved ballistics of the original TT DR Meter tool, which has already helped to preserve dynamics for thousands of modern pop releases and multiple millions of records sold. The only difference between the original and new DR meters is the removal of Correlation metering and the Mono Button. That was done in response to user requests, to reduce UI height so the new DRMeter takes up less screen real estate. We have implemented those functions in a free plug-in, our handy 2BusControl, which also includes solo buttons for L, R, MONO & DIFF, plus a left-right flip button and a useful Balance meter.
Accurate, easy to understand metering is an essential for any engineer, and the DRMeter´s measurement and display algorithms adhere to our guiding philosophy of enhancing your workflow and improving ergonomics through careful attention to the way you actually work. Ballistics are meticulously tuned to achieve the best match between the aural impressions you hear, and the visual rendering by the meters. Likewise, the plug-in is "light weight," demanding a minimum of CPU resources so it won´t slow down your host.
As an introduction to DR Dynamic Range metering and the ability to accurately gauge the dynamic density of your work, we’re offering this rather useful plug-in at a very reasonable price. Thanks for visiting, and don’t forget our DROffline measuring utility, the entry level companion batch processor that generates official DRi or integrated DR.
Looking for a BS.1770-3 Loudness metering solution? Step up to our DRMeter MkII universal measurement plug–in, the only comprehensive Loudness metering solution from us, the guys who helped pave the way for Loudness normalization. DRMeter MkII not only measures official DRi as you’d expect, but also all mandated R 128 and A/85 metrics plus a whole lot more…Check it out now.
Since the dark days of the Loudness Wars, the TT DR Meter and now our DRMeter have been beacons of light in the gloom…
“The DRMeter is a great tool which I also use to teach my students at NYU to get a better sense for dynamics and meaningful loudness management.”
