The Waves VU meter is designed to help you set proper levels for recording and mixing. And even though this plugin would normally be used for mixing and recording, it can also be used for mastering.
In this video, I will be demonstrating how you can use the Waves VU meter as a loudness meter when mastering. I will also go through how you can use a reference track to help set the final mastering limiter. This part can be especially helpful if you are trying to achieve a commercial level in your master.
Waves Audio is also offering this plugin for free for a limited time so make sure you pick it up before it’s too late!
