Reflex Dynamic Range Meter

Reflex Acoustics has released Reflex Dynamic Range Meter, a plugin that helps to visualize dynamic range across the frequency spectrum.


  • Loudness distribution of 5ms grains over the last 3 or 15 seconds, charted relative to mean loudness.
  • Colored bars for Peak (green), 90th percentile (blue), 10th percentile (pink) and Low (red).
  • Scrolling waveform display of last 1 second, at 5-millisecond resolution (click display to freeze waveforms).
  • Mid and Side modes, and a readout of side level relative to mid for each frequency band.
  • LUFS meter showing short-term (i.e. 3-second trailing) perceived loudness.
  • Two filter modes: “Eco.” is lighter on CPU, but introduces visible artifacts in the waveform displays for the eight frequency bands; Linear Phase (“Lin.”) has a very clean band separation, albeit with variable latency across the lower-frequency bands, meaning that transient peaks no longer align across the displays.

Technical notes:

  • Available in VST3 format for PC, and VST3 & AU formats for Mac. AAX support coming soon.
  • Requires a compatible Digital Audio Workstation or other plugin host.
