Overview

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.

Features
  • Multichannel peak, RMS & crest factor meter
  • True dynamic range measurement with levels histograms
  • Instant, average and maximum audio levels
  • Modular user interface to fit into your workflow, with multiple screen sizes
  • Total control over metering characteristics, including attack/release shape
  • Bob Katz's K-System scales support (K-12 / K-14 / K-20 and custom)
  • Mono, stereo, mid-side or surround analysis
  • Record measurements (peak, RMS, crest factor, clip etc.) as automation curves
  • Control in real time any MIDI-compatible plug-in or external MIDI device with the generated envelopes thanks to the plugin's MIDI CC output
  • Manage the shape of the output envelope: record reversed envelope, change amount of signal, and offset the generated envelope. This lets you use the plug-in for side chain ducking, compression and much more

DP Meter Pro

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.
