This came up in another thread and I think this could be a good thing to have.
In addition to writing a loudness curve it’d be very useful to write True Peak as well. I know that this would be a lot of values and perhaps it could be writing overs only indicated by a vertical red line or something.
So imagine that if one is working on for example a long-form show, say a 1hr show, and one is done with a first pass of mixing and wants to see if there are any foreseeable issues. The off-line processing would tell us if loudness is off of course, but would currently not tell us where the peak-overs are. So for anyone who doesn’t want to rely on slapping a brickwall limiter on the output this would be a great addition I think. One could quickly scan this track for the offending peaks, redo automation and tweak to avoid the peak, and move on.
It’s easy to mix and simply look away for a second or close your eyes or whatever, and then see a red clip indicator and have to backtrack several minutes to find out just where that occurred.
Anybody with me?
