Leeds, UK (May 22, 2014)—Nugen Audio’s VisLM loudness metering plug-in now includes support for 7.1 surround audio for the Xbox One console and the Audio Standards Working Group (ASWG) standard for PlayStation development.
VisLM provides a standard-compliant way to measure, compare, and contrast loudness during production, broadcast, post-production and quality assurance, on the fly or after the fact for entire sections of audio. VisLM supports ITU, ATSC, EBU and Game Audio standards; in addition to supporting channels recorded in 7.1 format, the latest version of VisLM now offers support for the VST3 plug-in format, improved routing in the stand-alone mode and a new analyze/render option.
"The latest version of VisLM is a direct response to our Game Audio customers, who need high-quality audio tools as they begin to adopt 7.1 as a standard format for titles for the new Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles," said Jon Schorah, creative director, Nugen Audio. "Just as with broadcasting, these customers need the ability to distribute their products in every market whilst ensuring loudness compliance. At the same time, they want to ensure appropriate loudness in order to give users the most immersive, exciting audio experience possible. VisLM provides a highly visual and easy-to-use way of meeting both goals."
The latest version of VisLM with 7.1 support is available as a free upgrade for current VisLM users.
