    foobar dynamic range meter

    Since I had to hunt for the plugin twice now, here is the link to a working foobar dynamic range plugin. The one linked to on the pleasurize music website (http://www.pleasurizemusic.com/free-downloads) has expired.

    Mac?

    Is there anything out there like this for Macs?

    I just found a link to

    I just found a link to something called "TT Dynamic Range OFFLINE Meter for the Mac platform" at the link below. I installed it, but now I have no idea what to do with it or how to use it. I can't even figure out how to launch it or if it's supposed to be part of iTunes. The person sharing the link is also a bit mystified because it's mentioned on the Pleasurize Music Foundation blog, but it's not listed in their downloads page as mentioned.

    If anybody else tries it and figures out what to do with it, please let me know.

    Dynamic Range

    I use "TT Dynamic Range OFFLINE Meter for the Mac platform" and not sure why you are having a problem. The version that I have is a compiled program and launches like any other mac application. I load WAV or AIFF files and it calculates the dynamic range of the the music. There is a good discussion in the forum (withint he past 6 months) on the value of dynamic range - should be easy to find with a search.

    To get it off of the web site, I think that you must be a paying member. I donated and then downloaded the software.

    "The version that I have is a compiled program and launches like any other mac application. I load WAV or AIFF files and it calculates the dynamic range of the the music."

    Thanks for your reply. I downloaded tt_dynamic_range_meter_mac_1_0.dmg available via the link above and then installed the application from the mpkg. The install seems to have worked fine, but I can't find anything in my applications folder. I tried searching my mac for "tt dynamic range meter", and the only thing it finds is the dmg and mpkg files. That's why I was confused about how to use it.

    Do you remember where you found it on the Pleasurize Music site? I might be willing to make a donation, but I'd like to know if the app is actually available first, and that they are available to provide support. Their site is really terrible and doesn't seem to be up to date. I also don't know why they won't disable or moderate comments, because they're full of page after page of spam posts. So it doesn't seem like the kind of organization that I want to give my money to.

    TT dynamic range meter for Mac

    There are two different TT dynamic range meters for Mac. There is the TT DR Offline Meter which should install in your applications folder and there is also a plugin version which works in real time. The plugin version would not show up in applications and can be accessed through pure music, Fidelia, Audio Hijack Pro, etc.

    The two downloaded files I have are:

    DRoffiline.dmg - offline version

    tt_dynamic_range_meter_mac_1_0.dmg - audio plugin version

    Office: Mac Book Pro, Sans Digital eSATA Drive Array, Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks)

    @THE VOICE

    Cannot remember how I came across this link but this is what shows up in Get info on the downloaded file. I downloaded it back in December and have not had any issues with it in pure music, Fidelia or audio hijack pro.

    yer thats the one I got. It downloads fine and opens up after unzipped and the normal process to install but then its seems to go "in the air" somewhere?/ path: /volume so I have no idea where it can be to access it. Where is yours hidden?

    Thanks again

    Location of installed plug-ins

    They are installed at:

    Macintosh HD/Library/Audio/Plug-ins/Components

    &

    Macintosh HD/Library/Audio/Plug-ins/VST

    These will not open on their own and must be accessed through a program that supports audio plug-ins.

    @ckpiv

    Thanks!

    I didn't realize there's a plug-in as well as the offline app for Mac.
