Awesome updates!

An option to center the floating fx window right after opening it, would be great. Something like "mpl_Move focused Track FX to screen center.lua" so that it would be out of the top/main toolbars and TCPs way.

Also making the stereo panel separated from the other meters panel would be great as well, if possible.

Anyway this script is insane already

Thanks HEDA!

Other numbers, which ones do you mean? For EBUR128 loudness there are plenty of resources to learn about it.
Thanks!
Pretty much everything regarding the meters, choice of measuring, peal lufs etc.

So, left is (if engaged)
- Peak lines
- rms meters
- rms histogram
right is:
- lufs meters
sl? ml? Peak-line?
Healthy values for mixing? Mastering?
Should I care about lufs peak indicator?
Top is:
- Stereo direction
- Phase: fully left is 100% mono?


I'm just mixing, so if it sounds good it is good,
but for checking my mix with limiter I guess something like 14db lufs is a rule of thumb?

thank you everyone for the nice comments.

@G-Sun
Yes you should care about the LUFS Maximum True Peak number. It should be less than -1. This is just for the master track. Yes, a -14.0 LUFS seems to be the standard loudness for general music now. If you do more classical music or soundtracks, you should use -23 LUFS.

the phase meter is red when phase correlation is negative from -1 to 0. This is not good because mono would sound much different than stereo. If phase is from 0 to 1, yellow or green, then it is better. Sometimes it doesn't matter if the correlation is negative for some moments. In the correlation histogram it won't be shown too much if it is only for a brief moment. So a good thing is if you see the histogram yellow or green. Decrease the width of the stereo a bit if you see it all red. A mono output should be green 100% all the time with no stereo phase issues since it is mono.
