Nugen Audio has released MultiMonitor, a new loudness and true-peak monitoring software application. MultiMonitor offers up to 16 individual loudness and true-peak meters in mono, stereo, and 5.1 formats for up to 96 individual audio channels. MultiMonitor is standalone software for Windows or OS X and each MultiMonitor meter displays dedicated momentary, short-term, and integrated program loudness alongside true-peak levels in a highly configurable environment. The multiple meter configurations allow numerous sources, groups, and playout streams to be monitored simultaneously, in any combination, and to individual specifications. In addition, MultiMonitor features short-term loudness-level alerts and colour-coded meter groups. It appears that MultiMonitor is capable of measuring anything with extreme accuracy, which might explain the US$2000 price tag just for the software. In a strategic partnership with SSL, MultiMonitor is also available through the LMS-16 turnkey system, which is the MultiMonitor software preinstalled and configured on an industrial-strength, 1-RU PC fitted with the SSL MadiXtreme 128 audio interface.
