Just for the fact that in the loudness section there's a death magnetic master setting i give it 10 stars for humour. But seriously... I have used this for 20 mins now, tried it on two different tracks that are 90% done and it's just immense. Haven't even used the a b function yet. Lots of info nice to see commercial mastering targets, the dynamics graphing is awesome. Well done, a true and helpful tool to help me know that have made the right choices at the when inserted at the end of my mix session. Or to correct a few things. So good had to write some nice things before i know how to use it all. Once again great job
Its a staple for Mastering studios
by Compound Audio
Before using Metric A/B for Post Audio Master applications, I had to create send & return channels in order to hear the before and after. although this was fine, I found that I would take 2 or 3 mins matching loudness levels & freq response etc. With A/B Metric, its just a touch of a button to get equal loudness of the before and after, as well as getting the same loudness as other commercial records. It also comes with some amazing features, Its 100% made my work flow faster and helped me choose better decisions when mastering for clients too.
Metric AB: Best out there
Easy to use, chock full of incredibly useful features. Volume match alone is worth its weight in gold. It is on the fuller side of features, where one could almost argue overkill, but I'd rather have them all and not use them than miss the flexibility when in need. Was using another plugin previously to do the same thing, but this is far better, hands down.
Since my mix environment is the definition of a 'not perfect', referencing as I go is absolutely critical. Metric AB has everything I look for in a reference tool: it's simple to drag and drop in multiple references, the metering options are top-notch, the various listening modes are super helpful, and it's light on the CPU to boot. Highly recommended.
ADAPTR Metric A/B
by John Durant
The Metric A/B plugin is another one of those PA must-have’s that combines several essential metering and analysis tools into a single extremely useful plugin. The efficiency and design of this product tells me that those who developed the Metric A/B are experts with mixing and mastering workflow. The ease in which you can load up and analyze several reference tracks (including multiple versions of the tracks you’re working on) while making adjustments in your mix is what makes this plugin so valuable. The tools and layout make perfect sense, and the extra large A/B button gives you a nice big mouse cursor target to land on when quickly scrolling around the screen. The Metric A/B is primarily used as the last plugin on your output chain before any monitor calibration software, but I think it could also be useful on soloed tracks or groups when trying to analyze particular track elements. This plugin strikes the perfect balance between A/B referencing by ear, and having precise real-time measurements for things like EQ, loudness, and panning. Don’t underestimate this audio referencing workhorse. This is another exceptional PA plugin that will help ensure that your mixes are on par with your favorite proven industry hits!

A MUST HAVE FOR MASTERING
by IGIT MASTERING STUDIO
This plug-in has become one of my main tools for mastering because of the accurate information it provides. At first I was a little apprehensive about purchasing because I have a standalone outboard meter that is excellent. This plug-in allows me to check my audio signal before processing with my analog gear and correlates with the feedback I get with my standalone outboard meter.
Metric AB is perfect
by T. W. Tobin
I don't often rate a plug in as 'perfect', but this one is pretty much that. I debated whether to buy it, but now after using it for mastering an EP worth of songs, I can say this tool will now be indispensable to me. It makes comparing to reference tracks, checking dynamics, and achieving LUFS loudness targets all very quick and easy. The range of features and graphic interface are well thought out. I really have no criticism of any kind at this point. Highly recommended.
Much better than what else is out there
I have uses Magic AB for a long time. It works great. I got Metric AB for a deal so I bought it. WOW, this just blows away what I was using. The spectrum view is great you can move it around and I do not have to focus on my Master spectrum as much when ABing stuff. You can layer the spectrum on top of the source and your tracks. You can solo just the low end and AB them or just the mids. Or whatever freq you want to AB. This this is great. A+++ on this release.
Been pro mixing for 28 years and have to say this must be one of THE best plug ins I've ever bought , SO well thought out and so intuitive ! Trust me you NEED to buy this for ref /mixing , thought I couldn't improve my game by much but this baby tell's me EVERYTHING i need to know ref mixing and my results are even better !
