Pluginboutique is running a 75% OFF deal on the DRMeter (priced at $9 on sale) dynamic range metering utility by MAAT. The offer ends on January 31st, 2018.
DRMeter is based on the same concept and code as the now discontinued TT Dynamic Range Meter plugin by the Pleasurize Music Foundation. Following the requests from TT Dynamic Range Meter users, the developers at MAAT removed the Correlation meter and the Mono button to reduce the vertical size of the user interface. Those features are now included in the free MAAT 2BusControl plugin which was featured as one of the best free VST plugins of 2017 on BPB.
For those unfamiliar with the original TT Dynamic Range Meter plugin, it was a very popular tool used to monitor the dynamic range of a mix. The idea was to help producers understand the dynamic range of their project by visualizing it and, as a result, preventing the loss of dynamics in favor of loudness. My favorite thing about it was the ease of use. The plugin was very well designed and intuitive, a utility that you could simply load on the master channel and use as a real-time visual guide for adjusting the levels and compression/limiting.
Although I still haven’t tested the new DRMeter, it does indeed look like the perfect substitute for TT Dynamic Range Meter. DRMeter is, after all, based on the same code, the only difference being the slightly reduced GUI size and the two features which have been transferred to the free 2BusControl plugin, as explained above.
DRMeter is currently on sale at Pluginboutique, priced at just $9 until January 31st, 2018. That’s 75% OFF its regular $37 price tag. Check out the other available Pluginboutique discounts on their deals page and enter our Scaler giveaway for a chance to win a free copy of the plugin.
