Options for PPM
I designed this audio level meter program to allow the optimum setting of input levels for various sound recording functions, particularly for video editing. When capturing video and sound from different sources accurate level setting helps maintain a consistency of volume across various clips, and therefore eases the sound mixing.

Available scaled as a BBC PPM, or with a range similar to the traditional VU meter, but reading peaks without the slow attack time.

The lowest level represented, which just moves the meter by 1 pixel, is -48db (VU) or -56db (PPM).
Requirements: A soundcard capable of 44.1KHz 16 bit stereo sampling is required.

For use with Windows 95 / 98 / ME / 2000 / XP

Important Note: With Windows versions prior to XP it is not normally possible to use the meter at the same time as other programs which are recording audio. This is because there is normally only one wave input channel, even though there may be several playback channels available simultaneously. Use the level meter to preview prior to recording. Set up levels, then close the level meter before starting the actual recording program.

Use of this program is unrestricted. However, if you find my program useful please consider making a small contribution via PayPal.
