Mix And Track In Your DAW Using The Industry’s Classic Metering Method

Are your mixes too often muddled and congested, even though you’re carefully watching peak levels in your DAW? If so, you are probably not using a VU meter.

Whereas the peak meters in your DAW focus on the loudest moments in the audio, VU meters average out many of the shorter peaks, mimicking the way our ears react to sound and giving you a more realistic representation of the way audio level changes are actually perceived. Waves VU Meter is designed to do just this, and equals the best hardware VU meters out there.

Features

  • Meter average levels to achieve a well-balanced mix
  • Accurate ballistic response with smooth movement & fast refresh rate
  • Headroom calibration: 4 to 26 dB
  • Classic console VU meter design

Load the Waves VU Meter on any or all tracks while recording to make sure your recording levels are not too hot, or insert it on your master buss and pin it to your screen for a precise visual reference of your mix’s overall levels for a clear and spacious mix!

Note: This plugin requires an internet connection for license activation.

A Sophisticated, Easy-To-Use VU Meter

VU meters have been a proven industry standard for decades, across multiple musical genres and platforms, assisting engineers to set proper recording levels and mix with adequate headroom and a well-balanced gain structure.

Components

Waves VU Meter has two components:

  • VU Meter Mono Component
  • VU Meter Stereo Component

Controls & Displays

  • Display Size (Stereo Component) – There are three display sizes: small, medium, and large. Click on the button to select a view size.
  • Headroom Adjustment – This calibrates the VU meter to the DAW’s reference level. Range: 4 dB–26 dB. Default: 18 dB
  • Graphic Display Adjustment – Meter activity can be delayed so that meters on different busses will appear time-aligned, even if those busses exhibit different latencies. Range: 0 ms–1000 ms. Default: 0 ms.
  • Clip Indicator – This LED lights up when the signal reaches -0.009 dBFS. Click on the LED to clear.
  • Meter Scales – VU Meter displays two measurement scales. The top scale refers to dB units, with 0dB representing the signal’s reference level (when Reference Adjustment is set correctly). The bottom scale is gauged in Volume Units: the percentage of power of the signal.

What People Think About FREE! “VU Meter Plugin” by Waves

  • "Waves’ VU meter plugin will be extremely helpful for younger mixers as they learn how to build proper gain stage in their sessions. It will help them see things, like why their tracks are distorting, in ways that are hard to understand with just a DAW meter. For seasoned vets, it will bring a sense of familiarity while helping us keep track of what’s going on with our levels. I love the retro look, too!”
