Trillium Lane Labs announced TL MasterMeter, a digital meter software, for the Digidesign Pro Tools platform.

TL MasterMeter digitally models the same conversion process that occurs inside the D/A stage of a consumer CD player, allowing mixing and mastering engineers to identify potential intersample peaks and ensure that a final mix will not create undesirable digital clipping by producing peaks that exceed 0 dB.

"Industry trends are demanding louder and 'hotter' mixes and mastering than ever before," said Jared Vogt of Trillium Lane Labs. "We are excited to announce the first plug-in for Pro Tools that enables an engineer to model how digital mixes are reproduced on a CD player, and use that knowledge to avoid distorted mixes and deliver the best possible audio quality."

TL MasterMeter features 2x, 4x and 8x oversampling DSP models and displays both regular and intersample peaks. A sample-accurate historical peak list allows an engineer to identify peaks anywhere in a Pro Tools session. Peak lists can be saved to the clipboard for later review.

Trillium Lane Labs released a white paper outlining how digital distortion occurs and how oversampling meters can help engineers produce better mixes. The white paper is available for download from

TL MasterMeter is available for Pro Tools 6.x on Macintosh OS X, and has a MSRP of $199; it is also available in a bundle with TL Metro and TL InTune for $349.

Further information and free seven-day downloadable demos are available from the company's Website.
