Blue Cat's DP Meter Pro (DPMP) is a unique audio analysis tool: it combines very flexible and customizable audio meters with advanced side chaining control capabilities thanks to its MIDI and automation outputs.
The metering capabilities of the DPMP plug-in let you control and monitor audio signals exactly the way you want: almost every aspect of the peak, RMS and crest factor meters can be customized. It proposes five different scales by default, including Bob Katz's popular K-System scales (K-12, K-14, K-20), and you can create your own.
Large colored statistics displays following your own scales are included for an overview of a track, while histograms give you a precise measurement of the dynamic range of the track. The graphs show the evolution of the audio envelopes over time, and the mid-side switch lets you verify mono compatibility problems and check the "stereoness" of your audio sources very easily. Whether you are working with mono, stereo or surround tracks, this plug-in will fit into your workflow.
All envelopes (peak, RMS, crest factor...) can be reused for additional monitoring or side chaining purposes: combined together, reversed, modified and recorded as automation curves or sent as MIDI CC messages, they can control other effects in real time.

Comments about Blue Cat Audio DP Meter Pro:
This is easily one of the most useful tools in my arsenal. I can't stress enough how important metering has been for me in getting clarity, depth, and dimension in a mix. I'm using this meter on my master bus, and mixing through it right from the start. That way I am not mixing, throwing it up, and then making adjustments as an afterthought. The K system metering is easily my favorite feature of the DP Meter Pro, as it gives me a great reference for what dynamic range I should be shooting for right from the get go. It's made mixing easier, faster, and more enjoyable. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a trim function, but that isn't that big of an issue; it makes up for it with other features. I really have only been using this on the master bus, but I am confident that you could move it around for critical metering of other sources. Now that I have the DP Meter Pro, I can't imagine mixing without it.
