Renegade Labs in Grass Valley, Calif., introduces its Mx Metering System, a high-resolution multichannel add-on for the firm's series of digital edit suite audio mixers. The unit is fully customizable with VU, PPM or K meter ballistics and a wide range of industry-standard meter scales. The Mx Metering System can be panel-mounted to an existing 328 Series or M16 mixer, or rackmounted in a separate two-rackspace panel.

"Surround metering is straightforward using the built-in surround views available with a single push of a button," says Kirk Bradford, Renegade Labs co-founder and president. "Level bars may be displayed either vertically or horizontally. Standard features include peak indication, over indication, phase warning, phase monitoring and DC warning."

Different meter "skins" allow for a variety of metering colors; custom configurations can be saved in user registers.

All meter scales use accurate true RMS ballistics, rather than simplified peak or average values. Built-in scales include VU, PPM, Full Scale, BBC, Nordic, EBU and the Katz K scales. An out-of-phase warning indicator can be enabled for any stereo pair. Over-indicators light when the audio level on a channel reaches clipping or a selectable level, and DC Warning indications notify when a high DC level is encountered. Peak Level Bar indicators show the actual peak audio sample values for each channel.

Renegade Labs states that the Mx Metering System is capable of either horizontal or vertical display. A 3-D Surround field monitor can also be enabled with meters in horizontal or vertical modes. The system is easily configurable, with optical encoders along with soft-buttons.

Renegade Labs will exhibit the Mx Metering System at the NAB Show in the Las Vegas Convention Center, April 11-14, in booth C3741.
