The Loudness Toolkit from NUGEN Audio is a collection of signal processing software that provides all the tools needed to intuitively produce loudness-normalized audio, seamlessly integrated into an audio production workflow.
Loudness metering with VisLM makes it easy to mix towards compliance without breaking the creative flow. LM-Correct brings faster than real-time quick-check-and-fix processing to the desk top, with internal true-peak correction if needed.
Placing ISL on the master bus allows for listening to true-peak compliant audio “in-place,” without needing to check louder sections separately for traditional limiter artifacts and true-peak compliance.
VisLM-H 2 from NuGen Audio is a loudness meter plug-in and standalone application that offers a variety of loudness measurement tools intended for use in audio mastering, broadcast, film, and more. With a design focused on primary loudness parameters, the software combines an instant overview with detailed historical information, enabling the user to hit their target first time. Additional loudness logging and timecode functions allow for proof of compliance reporting and postmortem analysis with frame-accurate referencing.
A fully resizable interface and many additional visualizations make it even simpler to identify exactly the information needed to choose the configuration that matches the current workflow precisely. The program remembers loudness data up to twelve hours, locked to timecode received directly from the NLE/DAW. Any minor edit or overdub immediately triggers overall loudness updates, eliminating the need for end to end re-measurement. Loudness data is saved with the session allowing full session loudness recall. Offline AudioSuite scans can be loaded into the real-time meter for immediate pre-loading of loudness history.
LM-Correct 2 from NuGen Audio is software that provides an immediate and hassle-free route to creating loudness-compliant audio, and in the process saves time and prevents costly mistakes. Either within a DAW/NLE, or as a stand-alone application, LM-Correct 2 delivers automated compliance with look ahead True-Peak correction. Used in conjunction with a real-time meter, the program saves iterative adjustments to the mix as target levels are approached, allowing transparent in-edit ‘quick-touch’ finishing of audio.
For file based-processes LM-Correct rapidly assesses and adjusts the entire file faster than real time. Automatically handling audio files from mono through 5.1, the software is compliant with all current loudness standards, and if needed the optional dialog-gated measure can be specified. Audio can be transformed with a single click from one specification to the next, with faster than real-time processing when delivering multiple versions or re-purposing for different regions and play-out specifications is required.
ISL 2 from NuGen Audio is a true peak limiter designed for use in audio mixing and mastering, and provides the necessary final step when preparing audio for broadcast. Look ahead functionality means the audio is examined before it actually passes through the limiter, helping to ensure that any transient peaks are limited correctly to avoid distortion. The true peak limit can be set directly to help ensure compliance with broadcast standards across a variety of mediums.
With steering and ducking meters, the software provides the perfect settings. Whether preserving directional integrity, atmospheric ambience or taming a surround centre channel, the plug-in delivers the information and control needed to achieve those goals. Processing enhancements assess the incoming audio for frequency content and automatically take care of any minor adjustments required when LF content drives the limiter, delivering increased transparency whilst maintaining intuitive operation.
