Best LUFS meter with easy to eyes

5 5 1
I have used quite a lot of Loudness meter in the past but this is yet the most eye pleasing and useful to me. I been using it since Youlean introduce it in the Image-Line forum as a beta, and as far as I can remember I stopped using TTmeter because of this. and with the Pro version it gets more variety of useful tools specially if you want your music to get a decent dynamics for streaming and Youtube. Just a wonderful plugin IMO.

The hidden Game!!!

HI, Have anybody found the hidden game? I have, but unfortunately I suck at bird game 🙂 and it is music we are trying to write 😉 But anyway, this is one of the best tools on the market, if you look at the price, nobody else comes close! I'm really looking forward to the next plugin, whether it's Freq-Balancer V3 or anything else. Good luck.

The Best LUFS Meter I've Experienced.

When LUFS started to become mainstream, we started to see a lot of expensive commercial plugins. After seeing Youlean's Loudness Meter, I was amazed at his generosity for providing it FREE, but also including an attractive GUI and including the features we need to get the required results. I'm very grateful for the Youlean Loudness Meter, and excited for what Youlean has planned for the audio community in the future! # GratuiTous

I use Youlean meter plugin for monitoring my streaming for see if the ebur128 rule is respected .It's very good plugin and very stable with last beta.

A fantastic plugin

I was on the hunt for a plugin that showed me different measurements for mixing tracks for TV, Radio production. I found Youlean and never had to go any further. I work in Ableton Live and I have never had a single problem with this plugin. The options to change measurement types is amazing and the flexibility of the loudness meter is just second to non!

Works great on PC & Mac, tried it on Cubase, Logic Pro X and Pro-Tools. The PDF option it cool and all the different loudness options are well presented. If there is a specific thing that you would like me to test, please send me an email. If i'll come across any problem, i will send you another review. Cheers!

Thanks for a great free tool. I just ran it alongside another well-known meter to get some 'insight' 😉 on how it tracked on a tv recording session. It measured very well for OP59. Was tracking integrated loudness exactly in time with the other meter. Well done.
