true:level is a metering plug-in that makes it very easy for you to work with pre-defined references. You can also load up to eight audio files from your hard drive as reference tracks. Let’s see how this is done!
To compare your track against one or multiple existing mixes, true:level allows to load up to 8 custom reference tracks. Every track will be analyzed and its loudness and dynamics information will be extracted and visually displayed.
Check out the tutorial video below to learn how to work with reference tracks using true:level. For more detailed information about the plug-in, download the latest manual.
Working with references in true:level
true:level has analyzed my reference tracks and is now displaying them as colored crosshairs within the Loudness and Dynamics Grid.
A click on a reference track number will hide the track and exclude it from the computation of the reference zones. The dropdown menu allows you to see file names or delete tracks.
Using the reference Selector, you can easily switch between the common reference and the reference track section.
You can drag the display range of the loudness-axis to match the level of your track.
Re-Start or pause the measurement using the buttons in the far-left corner. Here, you can also switch the measurement style from integrated to either short-term or momentary.
