KVR Developer Challenge WINNER

Youlean Loudness Meter was the winner of KVR Developer Challenge 2016.

As one of the prizes, the plugin was presented on NAMM Show 2017 in Los Angeles.

Youlean (Julijan Nikolic) is also part of the FL Studio alpha team, and many of his work like Patcher presets and ZGameEditor Visualizer effects are already part of FL Studio.

Why Youlean Loudness Meter?

“Once I learned about loudness metering using LUFS, I was really fascinated. The problem was that the plugins for measuring it were (and still are) really expensive and there were no free ones that can get you started.

So, I have decided to create a free loudness meter that will be even better than the most expensive ones.”

Tutorial by Michael (In The Mix)

Measurements explained


This measurement is basically like RMS but with a twist. It takes into account how humans perceive loudness and it is currently the most accurate way of measuring loudness. The main difference compared to RMS is that LUFS uses filters to shape the sound before processing in a similar way to how we hear the sound.


This measurement will give you an idea of the difference in volume between the verse, chorus and other sections of your track. If there is a big difference in loudness between the various sections of your track then your loudness range will be a higher number and vice verse.


Dynamic range metering will show you the levels of the compression in audio. The algorithm is based on a difference between true peak and short term loudness. The current implementation is improved version of the “PSR” algorithm which has problems measuring dynamics in audio that has fast changing quiet and loud sections.



Knowing the true peak value is really important since it indicates the true maximum level of audio after conversion to analog or different digital form such as conversion from WAV to MP3. If your audio goes above 0dB TP you might get clipping in converted audio.
