K-Metering for ITB mixing?
      #1029108 - 17/01/13 04:44 PM
Anyone using K-metering for ITB metering? If so which plugin do you use? I am going to purchase either the Great River Mixmaster 20 or Shadow Hills Equinox for analogue summing mixer. Will the summing mixer make K-Metering an non issue?

Thanks in advance

K-metering is just a set of alternative meter scales with varying headroom margins -- 20, 14 and 12dB of headroom for the K-20, K-14 and K-12 scales, respectively. The mixing technology is irrelevant. The only thing that matters is the destination you're mixing for and the average loudness you're aiming to achieve.
