And it couldn't be easier to use.
Especially as mainstream software like Cubase 7, Logic and Ozone Insight begin adding support for them.

Let's see now how it does with a song that's a little bit busier… Once again, the result seems more than satisfying, especially considering that it only took me a couple of minutes, whereas a premix by hand would've taken me a quarter of an hour.

An hour before leaving for the gig, thought I'd just check, and there was clipping all over the place. Why the hell would I bring this up in this review? It should also be easier for me to make adjustments after firmware changes, as I will use only a few different amp blocks across all presets. Furthermore, in my opinion, it lacks a global bypass function to be able to quickly disable all synced instances of the plug-in.
The adjustments will differ from track to track, depending upon the measurements made on each track. More about this important and helpful feature, below. If you are unsure of what you are looking at, hover over it to view pop-up help about that item. Especially since you can resize the interface and customize the display at will with different colors and sizes for each section via the plug-in's preferences, which can be easily accessed with a simple click on the monkey wrench on the top left. You can obviously save your preferences as presets to be able to switch quickly from one display mode to another depending on the situation.

And each group has its own synced bypass Conclusion I must admit that Klangfreund has pulled off a very useful plug-in that has utterly seduced me. A new set of recommendations were finalized in 2012 that paved the way for the latest generation of metering that measure loudness statistics, rather than objective attributes such as gain.
