New ‘Levels’ Metering Plugin Alerts You To Problems With Your Mix

mastering-the-mix-levels29Palms, working with Mastering the Mix, have announced Levels, a metering plugin.

Levels allows the user to quickly see technical issues with a mix, highlighting aspects of the mix in need of fixing.

The plugin developer explains:

“Metering plugins are super boring and unintuitive for the majority of music makers, yet crucial for getting a technically-excellent mix. So I developed a tool that artists would actually want to use.

“I wanted to give music producers a simple solution to assessing the technical details of their music, but with an awesome user experience.

In a nutshell, this software only alerts you if there is a technical issue with your mix. If all is well, it just lets you continue making music and doesn’t disrupt your flow.”

  1. I downloaded the trial to check it out. It’s not bad, just really simplistic. I can do all the same things with other plugins. Nice UI though.

    Still, if you want something to quickly spot check your mix it isn’t bad at all. I might pick it up if the price drops to around $30.
