The Loudness Penalty Plugin tells you what streaming services will do with your mixes. We study the changes before uploading the music to the Network. MeterPlugs Studio has released the Loudness Penalty Plugin, which measures the output level of the master channel. The plugin is a version of the eponymous online audio analysis service installed on a computer. Loudness Penalty Plugin works independently of the service and shows how much the signal level will change after uploading to one of the popular streaming sites.
By placing the plug-in on the main output channel, musicians will see how many decibels the signal will be altered. The program takes into account that different services use their own compression algorithms and treat the audio signal in their own way, so musicians can find out what happens to their tracks after uploading to Apple Music, SoundCloud, Spotify and other sites. In addition to this, users can add “bookmarks” to mark problem areas of the composition.
