How to use 3rd party levels meters?

Youlean Loudness Meter, mLoudnessAnalyzer, Mastering the Mix LEVELS, TBProAudio dpMeter5…

All of these plug-in meters to display levels of volume as the track is playing work the same way… which is to say, they don’t work in Audacity since 3.0. These plug-ins spawn their own meters in a child window, but the focus is locked to this child window and it is not possible to press the Play button in Audacity.

This seems ridiculous. What am I missing? Why can’t I figure this out? Can anyone explain to me how this is meant to work?

Well, I figured out that I should be using these as Realtime Effects! Seems so simple once you know. :woozy_face:
