I’am happy this works with 8.02!
In 8.01 unfortunately it does not (just tried again). I cannot install WL8.02 patch on my notebook. It always shows an error “Cannot load WlPlugin8 plug in”. Have to check it on another machine…
This tool is called “Loudness meta normalizer”. This is not a “peak normalizer”. You can trick it to use it as a “peak normalizer”, as I explained. This tool is not designed to peak-normalize -25 dB files, as a direct option. However, this is even possible by using the new “Audio Montage output”. As the output level can be much higher than +10 dB (Master Section limit).
Yes, but the meta normalizer used to be a peak normalizer and it was a great tool just the way it once was…
But I have a question: why do you want to peak normalize rather than loudness normalize?
Because I have audio files that are already mastered and the tracks are perfectly leveled in relation to each other. They come from analog sources, so their peak level is well below 0 dBfs. So, here I only need PQ-Editing and a proper peak normalization for a CD.
But the same with new recordings…I almost never need to get the same loudness on different movements of a symphony .
