Blue Cat's DP Meter Pro (DPMP) is a unique Format-AUdio analysis tool: it combines very flexible and customizable Format-AUdio meters with advanced side chaining control capabilities thanks to its MIDI and Format-AUtomation outputs.

The metering capabilities of the DPMP plug-in let you control and monitor Format-AUdio signals exactly the way you want: almost every aspect of the peak, RMS and crest factor meters can be customized. It proposes five different scales by defFormat-AUlt, including Bob Katz's popularK-System scales(K-12, K-14, K-20), and you can create your own.

Large colored statistics displays following your own scales are included for an overview of a track, while histograms give you a precise measurement of the dynamic range of the track. The graphs show the evolution of the Format-AUdio envelopes over time, and the mid-side switch lets you verify mono compatibility problems and check the "stereoness" of your Format-AUdio sources very easily. Whether you are working with mono, stereo or surround tracks, this plug-in will fit into your workflow.

All envelopes (peak, RMS, crest factor...) can be reused for additional monitoring or side chaining purposes: combined together, reversed, modified and recorded as Format-AUtomation curves or sent as MIDI CC messages, they can control other effects in real time.

Features

  • Multichannel peak, RMS & crest factor meter.
  • True dynamic range measurement with levels histograms.
  • Instant, average and maximum Format-AUdio levels.
  • Format-Modular user interface to fit into your workflow, with multiple screen sizes.
  • Total control over the metering characteristics, including attack/release shape.
  • Bob Katz's K-System scales support (K-12 / K-14 / K-20 and custom)
  • Mono, stereo, mid-side or surround analysis.
  • Record measurements (peak, RMS, crest factor, clip etc.) as Format-AUtomation curves.
  • Control in real time any MIDI-compatible plug-in or external MIDI device with the generated envelopes thanks to the plugin's MIDI CC output.
  • Manage the shape of the output envelope: record reversed envelope, change amount of signal, and offset the generated envelope. This lets you use the plug-in for side chain ducking, compression and much more.
  • Easy 'stereoness' and phase cancelation measurement.

Blue Cat Format-AUdio Standards:

  • Available as: Mac-AAX, Mac-Format-AU, Mac-Format-RTAS, Mac-VST, Mac-Format-VST3, Win-AAX, Win-DX, Win-Format-RTAS, Win-VST, Win-Format-VST3, Win x64-AAX, Win x64-DX, Win x64-VST, Win x64-Format-VST3.
  • Native DSP code for optimal performance.
  • Full MIDI control and Format-AUtomation support with silent, zipper-free parameters update, advanced response control and MIDI Learn.

  • Customizable user interface with transparency management.
  • Format-AUtomation and MIDI output: record output parameters as Format-AUtomation curves or send MIDI CC messages to other plug-ins for powerful side chain effects.
