Leeds, UK (January 16, 2013)-With the release of VisLM version 1.6, Nugen Audio's visual loudness monitoring tool is now available in AAX format and in a 64-bit OS X version.
"The availability of a plug-in that's compatible with both AAX and 64-bit OS X means that our customers can continue editing as they always have, even as systems and technologies evolve," said Jon Schorah, Nugen Audio creative director. "VisLM 1.6 also has a number of other new features and usability improvements that our customers have been eagerly anticipating."
VisLM 1.6 includes a new dialog gate option that enables automatic measurement of dialog sections within the source material. Measurements can now be written to automation tracks so that the loudness profile and true-peak clips can be seen against the waveform in the digital audio workstation timeline for diagnostic referencing. Also, the short-term sliding-window value is now adjustable.
Editors will see enhancements to usability, including a "global reset" option and automatic start/stop/reset of the integrated program measurement following the transport bar. Maximum and minimum alerts settings are now available independently, and users can switch to the compact version from within the plug-in with a resizable interface.
