Zone in on loudness & dynamics

Predefined references and custom reference tracks

Gain productive insights with the help of references

true:level comes with a range of predefined references – including the loudness standards of publishing platforms and dynamic references for different genres. Aiming for these reference values avoids unpleasant surprises when you publish your a mix. To ensure consistency across an entire project, you can load up to 8 reference tracks to compare your mix with.


Unique visualization that provides clarity

Easily find and make the right trade-offs

true:level makes the link between loudness and dynamics of a mix immediately apparent and provides you with a holistic overview of both values. The calculated reference zone is specified either by your chosen loudness and dynamics reference or the custom reference tracks that you’ve uploaded. In case you need a little guidance regarding how to modify your track to bring it within the reference zone, just hit the Level Check. That will provide you with hints as to what actions are needed.

Reliable metering for confident publishing

Focus on readouts that really matter

All displayed readouts as well as their visualizations are designed so that you don’t have to second-guess what you are seeing – or become distracted by too many details. true:level’s key readouts are supported by target indicators, allowing you see if your track is close to the values of your chosen reference.

Monitor all relevant key readout at a glance:

• Loudness [LUFS] – integrated, short-term, momentary
• Loudness Range [LU] – integrated, short-term, momentary
• Dynamics [dB] – based on Peak to Loudness Ratio
• True Peak [dBTP] – using high-resolution oversampling



Get true:level to make sure that the loudness and dynamics of your track are in good shape for publishing.
