PPMulator to v1.4

PPMulator is a cross-platform VST plug-in meter for digital audio workstations which exactly mimics the look and feel of a professional broadcast Peak Programme Meter (PPM).

By adding this little plugin to the master output of your audio editing program, you can record, edit, mix and export your audio within a precisely-calibrated workspace - something which is often impossible to do when working in a non-studio environment.

PPMulator is designed to closely-follow the ballistics of mono, stereo and mid-side (MS) PPM meters (conforming to IEC 268-10/DIN 45406) and has a number of built-in additional features, including various display style options and a highly-useful Peak Logging process which logs all peaks/overloads against the timecode in the host application where they occurred.

PPMulator Feature Set

* VST plug-in for both Windows and Macintosh, 100% compatible with Tracktion, Nuendo and other hosts
* Configurable as a Type I/Type II PPM, or set your own custom reference levels, ballistics and settings
* Both 'box-and-needle' PPM or plasma bargraph graphical display options
* Unique Peak Logging feature - create lists of 'overs' logged against timecode for unattended mixes/laybacks
* Mono/Stereo/Mid-Side (MS) metering options, with overload led
* Fully-resizable single or dual meter display, from massive to weeny
* Monitor both input level when recording and output level when mixing
* Also includes 'standalone' version for monitoring the input levels from a soundcard
* Mono gain trim to M3 (-3dB) or M6 (-6dB) standards
* Phase-error warning light for maximum mono compatibility
* Built-in reference tone generator for meter alignment and calibration

PPMulator 1.4 makes some improvements to the stand-alone version, allowing selection of specific input channels, and an always-on-top button. It also fixes a bug with the "slow fallback" option.
