I've been using this meter and am impressed at its realtime accuracy and flexible options. Thanks Brainworx!
What's to say except to say I'm loving this meter. I'm making better sounding/more balanced mixes than before. Also seeing what I thought were good mixes become better due to seeing the correlation errors my ears may not pick up. I just wish there were a multi-band version of this beasty :)
Tells me exactly what I need to know concerning levels and the loudness needed for different genres and mixes.

The bx_meter is always in my projects. Production, mixing, mastering, audio analysis… Everywhere, every time. More than a simple feedback, but more a personal tip (some users may know). I use it in a very simple way, but I lately found my perfect way to use it. Let's say I have one output for the rough mix linked to the main out (of Logic Pro X in my case) and one out for the current mix/master (let's call it Master Bus) I'm doing that is linked to the main out too. I put one bx_meter on the main out, to get metering of both versions and one on the Master Bus at the very end of the mastering chain. The one on the master bus is switched off but the Standard Filter is active. If I decided to use this one is because it puts volume down to -7dBFS and that's almost what artists send as value for their mixdowns. So by activating this one the Master Out will drop down and will be closer to the mixdown level. Then by switching from the rough and the mastered version, I can compare the Dynamic Range (DR), the RMS at the same peak level (-7dBFS to tell again). This will help to take good decisions about the final volume stage, especially by checking the DR. For electronic music, I like to go from 9 to 6 (is the highest I tend to do now), really depending on how tracks have been mixed and how producers want their tracks, depending on style and many more parameters. Hope this is helpful for some of you! I think this use very handy.

MUST HAVE PLUGIN. You can monitor your singal in M/S, control the Phase correlation, peak and RMS. Insert it in you master chain.
Simple & Immensely Useful
I have a lot of different metering plug-ins—bx_meter has become my favorite. When mastering I am always trying to maximize my dynamic range (Musicians Against the Loudness War!) and I like the way bx_meter shows the DR along with the peak and RMS values. I also like the vertical orientation of this plug-in—I can tuck it away to one side of my screen, leaving me space to work with other plug-ins. Other useful features include the stereo placement and correlation. You can also quickly solo the mid and side bands. It has everything I need.
