Our advanced metering algorithm has been optimized to deliver superior sound quality and accurate results. The integrated True Peak limiter helps ensure there are no overshoots getting through, whilst still normalizing to target. Our novel limiting algorithm also provides absolute transparency. Due to our approach, the relative dynamics of your audio will be affected as little as possible and you’ll be left with consistent, compliant masters of your audio files every single time.
By boasting a comprehensive range of industry standards and recommendations, the Bute Normaliser ensures that you can tune your productions to the needs of your clients with minimal effort. We will keep these up-to-date and you can create and save your own presets as well.
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 (including the latest revision), TIDAL, Sony Gaming (ASWG), AES Streaming Recommendation, US Public Radio (PRSS), TIDAL and Pandora.
The color-coded alert system notifies you if there are areas of your audio file that go out-with your desired target. You can see these areas in red on the history timeline. In addition, our custom alert system also allows you to finetune the alerts for all the readouts to your specific needs. These will appear in yellow.

Import and export your files with a simple drag & drop. Please note that the BUTE Normaliser only processes one file at a time. If you are looking for Batch Processing, then our server-based enterprise solution is what you are looking for.
