This seems to be the most stable & accurate level matching tool available - the others I've used prior to this are a bit buggy or lacking in accuracy. This also has a huge wealth of features to help achieve the modern mastered sound we are all looking for. So glad I tested this out - will be on my mix buss from now on.

Pretty nice design. I don‘t need further tools beside it to make it whole. What I‘d love to see in future though: Let us see the spectrum analyzer gainmatched too. That is crucial in my opinion to see small changes.
by Very useful tool!!!
Thank you PA for this A/B comparing meter. It's one of the rules - to use a reference tracks during the mixing. This tool helps you to do it very easy and quickly with many useful options.
Just Great ! Nothing more to say ... The wishes for improvement in the comments here are on my list, too ... plus a STANDALONE Version. Thanks a lot!
Best of its kind AB plugin
by Anthony Aks
I can't not leave a review about this. The best plugin for AB comparison of all that I was able to use. Comprehensive analysis of the required parameters with excellent visualization. And all this is done incredibly convenient and simple. Thank you!

I've been using another A/B plugin for a while now, which claims to be "magic", but, compared to MetricAB, the only magic it has are cheap parlour tricks, a fake plastic rabbit, and playing cards drawn by children with crayons, in their nose. I knew the second I opened MetricAB that it was a serious tool that covers every possible permutation and scenario re: comparing reference tracks. It's bursting with useful and very valuable information, and as a result, my other less-than-magic AB plugin, has been permanently benched. Thank you Plugin Alliance for about the 6th or 7th time already this year, and it's only March. These deals are unmissable. Very much appreciated Dirk, and the PA team !!
Perhaps the best comparison tool right now in the market with a comprehensive set of measuring tools. There is still some small room for improvement though: keyboard shortcuts for switching versions / source and no-lag switching between versions.
For me it was a gamechanger
This plugin totally changed my mixing approach from blind trial and error to laser-sharp analysis and then adapt. The only thing, that I really would love to see in a future update: PLEASE GIVE US FULLSCREEN MODE, so I can permanently park Metric AB on a dedicated monitor! :)
Excellent comparison plugin
by Andres N
This is an excellent comparison plugin with modern loudness metering. There is nothing like it out there. There are some design choices that I don't like though, and I think could be improved: Spectrum holds peaks currently only up to 5 seconds. Changing graph type changes it in all the analyses mode together. Hovering your mouse over spectrum analyser does not give exact frequency.
Without this new and excellent plugin I would have been lost making fast, temporary (or even permanent) masters of songs all from the same project for clients. Placing MetricAB as the last plugin in the mastering chain and then being able to import so many related masters to reference by a simple A/B, with zero hassle, has been a life saver. Time = money. I would say just try this and in 10 minutes you will see. Thanks again, P.A.
