Hi,

Someone recommended me Voxengo Span to analyse both the spectrum and the RMS level of my mix.  THANKS.  Your product definitely works well.

I read the help file.  However, I'm not sure I understand the 'RMS' and 'PRMS' indicators.  When I set it to 'K-12', a snapshot of my mix ends up with the 'RMS' showing about -2 plus on average and the 'PRMS' on average to be about +2.  What does this mean, really?  What average RMS was that indicating?

Here's what the readme file says about those indicators: -

"...that RMS counters show dB values: A/B, where B = A + 3 dB.  PRMS (peak RMS)counter has 50 ms averaging time." No other info that I can interprete well.

PS: Quite amateur here.  Sorry if this question is rather lame.

Regards,

- Jess


RMS is RMS power of the track so far.

PRMS is a maximal registered peak RMS power.

As for the "A/B, where B= A+3" - it is an outdated information I've forgot to remove (sorry for the confusion).

The meaning of RMS/PRMS readout depends on the meter mode you have chosen.

Thansk for responding.  I arbitrarily use the 'K-12' meter mode.

My 'RMS' shows about -2 plus on average and the 'PRMS' on average to be about +2.  What does this mean, really?  What average RMS was that indicating?

PS: Sorry, a bit amateur here.  I only know the lower the RMS level, the louder it represents.  But, find it hard to understand the readings (not just yours, but I think some other products out there uses this kinda style as well).


First of all, the higher the RMS value, the louder the song is, on average.

'RMS' readout shows K-12 RMS power accumulated from playback start or readout reset.  You may reset the readout by clicking on it.

PRMS is peak RMS power detected from playback start or readout reset.
