Blue Cat Audio Releases Widening Meter Pro Plug-In


Blue Cat Audio announces the release of Widening Meter Pro, a DirectX and VST plug-in for Windows that measures the RMS and Peak level of the mid and side channels. Thanks to advanced MIDI and automation features, it is possible to monitor the mono compatibility of a mix as well as phase cancelation issues. Another possible usage of this unique tool is the control of other effects with the envelopes of the mid or side channel.

Main Features:

  • Digital Peak & RMS mid/side Vu-Meter
  • Choose the virtual center position for the mid channel
  • Realtime control of any MIDI-controllable plug-in or external MIDI device with the RMS or peak envelope of the mid and side channels of the audio signal
  • Record the output parameters (peak, RMS value, transformed envelopes, clip etc.) as automation curves
  • Manage the output envelope shape: record reversed envelope, change amount of signal, and offset the generated envelope
  • Advanced signal monitoring with envelopes realtime display
  • Easy 'stereo-ness' and phase cancelation measurement
  • Skinnable user interface

Widening Meter Pro can be purchased alone or together with the Digital Peak Meter Pro product in the Analysis Bundle. It is also possible to purchase all Blue Cat Audio products within a single bundle, the All Plug-ins Pack.

  • Blue Cat's Widening Meter Pro: 33.15 EUR (instead of 39), or USD 39.8 (instead of USD 46.8)
