An updated version of SPAN has been released.  It features the following improvements:

* Channel statistics (RMS, Peak RMS and Clip counter) implemented.

* L+R channel display mode implemented.  The right channel's spectrum is displayed in red color.

* Bar graph display modes implemented.

Is there any way to skin - colorize the graph's elements? (like it is done for CurveEQ).  Also to make a bar view instead of curve?


Bar view can be enabled using the special selector near the Instant/Inertia switch.  As for skinning, it is not planned for implementation in SPAN.

Aleksey - I didn't catch the meaning of the 'B' rms value, in the notes you state:

Please note

that RMS counters show dB values: A/B, where B = A + 3 dB.

What do I need the 'B' value for ?

Thanks,

Kyle


'B' value should be used to match sound levels to K metering system.

Cool !  I'm just starting to get into the Bob Katz K system...I'm thinking K-14 or K-20 are the ones of most interest.  Thanx

Surely the +3 dB is more "mathematically correct" in a steinbergish manner, and we should use for K-system without the additional +3 dB?

K-14 is for stereo metering, and K-20 is for Audiophile or Surround.  But K system is indeed the best approach to mix to, that is for certain.

RMS is a standard mathematical procedure, and if you take an RMS measurement of a full-scale sine wave it will give a value of -3dBFS.  It is for this reason that a +3dB correction may be made.  Whether or not it is made, is optional.  Unfortunately most software meters don't make this explicit; for instance Inspector does not add 3dB, PSP's Vintage meter does (if memory serves correctly), though you wouldn't know other than by testing them.  If you read Bob Katz's web page about k-metering he states quite clearly that k-metering should be done with meters which show rms +3dB.  If you don't have this correction k-20, k-14 and k-12 actually become k-23, k-17 and k-15!

Thank you for the clarification - I appreciate it.

I got confused because in another place there was a post saying the exact opposite.

Should have gone straight to Digido.....

Hi Aleksey,

Just a quick question about the RMS readings in SPAN: what's the integration time for the RMS figures, and what's the fall time?  It's just that I'm not quite sure how to interpret the values.  I'm presuming that the averaging is designed for long-term loudness metering, as when levels drop (i.e. silence) the RMS value only falls very slowly.

Anyhoo, thanks for releasing these freebie!

Bye,

Steve
