Dp Meter 2 problem

Post by nadeem7676 » Mon Dec 11, 2017 10:29 am

Hi,
I am facing a problem with the dp meter 2 on macbook pro. It is working fine on windows.
Whenever I try to set to -14 LUFS, it automatically sets it to -23 lufs to -26-lufs instead.

Please help me to resolve this issue.

Thankyou
Nadeem

And I am having problems with metering itself. With Audacity from here https://developers.google.com/actions/t ... o-loudness downloaded reference file seems to be -7.3LUFS where as it should be -16. With Logic Pro dpMeter2 works well and measures -16LUFS. So definetely something wrong with Audacity.

Further info.

Message from TBProAudio -team:
It seems that Audacity gives different loudness values when the audio file is just played (Play button) or rendered (Apply button).
But it looks that rendering (Apply button) gives the right loudness value. Play seems to depend on selected audio driver... This seems to be a problem of Audacity.
They tested with dpMeter V1.3.3, Audacity 2.2.1, Windows 10. I have tested this with the same result with Audacity 2.2.1, dpMeter V1.3.3 and macOS Sierra 10.13.3 (17D47).

So this really seems to be a problem with the Audacity!
