Signum Audio Bute Loudness Analyser Surround -
Metering Plugin with up to 10-channel Surround
The perfect tool for keeping your levels in check
Loudness standards are usually part of a delivery specification and since this is the last step in post-production it's a time-critical issue for most projects. Signum Audio's tools help to meet specifications with ease. Even if you don't need to hit specific specifications you might still want to loudness master for your target platform (e.g. Spotify, or YouTube), their tools help with that as well.
The BUTE Loudness Analyser is the backbone of Signum's range of loudness solutions, and an essential tool for those working in post-production for broadcast, music, gaming, podcasts, film, sound design, and radio imaging. It offers high-end quality at a great value.

DAW Sync and Automatic Re-Metering
Whether you use Pro Tools, Ableton, Logic, Cubase, Premiere Pro (or most other DAWs for that matter), Bute will synchronize, with it locking to the transport. When you make any alterations to your audio in your DAW, Bute automatically re-analyzes and updates the overall metering and history graph.
Bute is fully compliant with all revisions of ITU-R BS. 1770, EBU R128, ATSC A/85, OP-59, ARIB TR-B32, Spotify, YouTube, Apple Check, Hulu, Netflix, TIDAL, Sony Gaming (ASWG), AES Streaming Recommendation, US Public Radio (PRSS), TIDAL and Pandora. You can also save multiple user-defined presets.
History Overview & Alerts
The detailed history overview gives you complete oversight and insight of your session. Areas of your audio that need your attention will be shown in red in the history overview. You can easily navigate to the areas that require your attention and zoom in and out your metering data. Handling a long session? No problem!
Custom Alert System for Dynamic Work
If you are working within a dynamic range, you can specify your desired range parameters in the "custom warning system" section of the settings menu. Sections of your audio that go out with the specified range will appear in yellow on the history overview. This will let you focus on your craft instead of meter readouts.
Easily Toggle Between Readings
You can toggle between short-term and momentary loudness, true-peak, and traditional RMS readings at the click of a button. This means you can declutter the interface to focus on the information you want. The same goes for switching between absolute and relative scale.
Flexible and Scalable
Bute is completely scalable giving you the flexibility to freely adjust size and scale to your preferences. There is also a compact view to save valuable screen space if needed.
Save, Reload and Export Metering Data
If you need to save multiple sessions for different platforms, you can. Bute will also reload metering data from previous sessions so you can head home and continue the next day where you left off. If you need to prove your program or audio file is loudness compliant, you can export CSV logs too.
