Bob Orban Offers Free Loudness Meter for Windows and macOS

Orban is making its Loudness Meter software available free of charge.

The software is sponsored by Orban’s loudness controllers for FM radio, television, and streaming. Orban invites users who need highest-performance automatic loudness control to check out the Optimod models 6300, 5500i, 5700i, 8600Si, 8700i LT, and 8700i here.

Optimod-PCn 1600 audio processing software for Intel/Windows is also available here.

V2.7 of Orban’s Loudness Meter was a major upgrade that added support for up to 7.1-channel surround and the ability to analyze audio and the audio parts of video files offline for their BS.1770-4 Integrated Loudness, EBU R 128 LRA, highest true peak level, and number of true peaks above 0 dBFS. The meter will graph the BS.1770-4 Integrated Loudness and peak swings of the CBS Loudness Meter as a function of time, and can display a histogram of the BS.1770-4 Integrated Loudness. v2.9 is now available for both Windows and Mac. Windows V2.9 works with Windows Vista/7/8/10; it is not compatible with Windows XP and earlier. We will continue to make v2.0 available for Windows XP users. Mac V2.9.7 works with macOS 10.14 Mojave and some earlier versions.

If you have a previous version of the meter installed, a successful installation may require doing more than just running the set up executable. Please follow the instructions in the Installation section starting on page 9 of the Orban Loudness Meter for Windows and macOS Operating Manual. To access the manual, click the READ ME button here.
