Map Input Bus Metering to Audio Track (in Direct Monitoring)

This allows you to map the input bus metering to monitor-enabled audio tracks, giving you the opportunity to watch the input levels of your audio tracks when working in the Project window. For this to work, activate Direct Monitoring in the Device Setup dialog.

  • If this option is activated, audio tracks show the metering signal from the input bus to which they are routed as soon as the track is monitor-enabled. Note that the tracks are mirroring the input bus signal, that is, you will see the same signal in both places. When using mapped metering, any functions, such as trimming, that you apply to the audio track are not reflected in its meters.

  • If this option is not activated, metering works as usual.

Meters’ Peak Hold Time

This allows you to specify for how long the peak levels are held in the meters. For this to work, deactivate Meters - Hold Forever in the MixConsole.

Meters’ Fallback

This allows you to specify how quickly the meters in the MixConsole return to lower values after signal peaks.
