Hi Aleksey

I like the new design of Elephant2.

I do not like the new meters, very much.

I guess the intention is, to use the blue bars as RMS meters.

But as I'm mostly cutting peaks,

I only see the peak lines jumping around, which is not very helpful.

( The hold time of the peak lines seems a bit too short

and their color does not give much contrast, to the background. )

Also, the old meters were smoother.

This may be a minor issue, as it is not about the sound ...

but to me, the behavior of the metering, is also about 'feeling' a certain quality.

E.g.: the very good analyzer graphics in CurveEQ,

makes it 'feel' very expensive !

Would be great, if the meters could get something like a RMS/Peak switch,

to bring back the old characteristics.

bye, Jan


OK, I'll add this to my to-do list.  I will simply add an option to have 'old' reduction monitoring style.

Thanks, Aleksey !

Could you incorporate Bob Katz's K-14 metering?  Good metering is worth its weight in gold in my opinion.

Also, when would you want to use the "+3db" metering option?

Thanks,

Ed


+3 dB metering option is useful exactly when you are using Katz's metering systems.  K-14 AFAIK is RMS -14 dB, peak RMS -10 dB.  These figures incorporate +3 dB correction.

So, after enabling the +3 dB correction you can examine your levels against Katz's metering system just by examining RMS and peak RMS figures.
