[Request] calibrated embeddable VU meter (DONE)
edit:
Done (see below), thanks ashcat_lt.
Reaper comes with the Liteon VU meter JSFX which is embedable in TCP/MCP but it doesn't seem to be calibrated/calibrateable to 18 = 0 VU (my preferred use case).
Also, maybe I used the wrong settings, but I couldn't quite get the meter ballistics matching other VU plugins.
Anyone could modify it (or make one)?

Posted in the other thread a hack that makes it really rms, nice and smooth, and with both calibration and audio throughput gain adjustment.

Ballistic are very smooth now indeed and matching my other VUs, nice work, thank you ashcat.
I did however notice the reference level differs by 3 dB, but from what I know, both are correct, no? (depending on whether taking a sine or square wave as reference or something.)

I never really got that. RMS is RMS. It just turns out that square wave RMS is equal to the (rectified) peak level. Basically that meter is telling you what the peak level of a sine wave with that rms level would be. Or something. Seems silly, but there’s plenty of room for adjustment on the calibration slider.
I’m gonna play with it and add a couple options a little later.

Another thing I noticed, your version doesn't seem to embed in MCP anymore (which would actually be my intended use case).

Well shit yeah that really was the whole point. I haven't upgraded yet so can't test that. I wonder if there's something changed in the code to make it work? Any chance you could send me the code from your version?

But anyway, I made a "deluxe" version in case you want to check it out.
It has two new detector modes which change the ballistics pretty drastically. One is an average of rectified sample values rather than RMS and the other is slew rate limited rather than integrated. IDK which is most correct for actualy VU, but you can play around and see which feels best for you.
It also has an AutoGain feature. Set it to "1 = grab" and it will figure out how much gain it needs to hit the 0dbVU as set by the calibrate slider and then when you put it to "0 = run", it sets the gain slider to that. It works much better for more steadystate material. Can be weird with real percussive inputs.
Hopefully we can figure out the issue with the embedding.

edit:
Simply pasting the

section in your version did it.

Minor update here.
Added an "audio" output on channel 3 that represents the calculated value (RMS or whatever). Be careful with this. Use pin connectors to assign it to a track channel that you're not using for other things. You can use it as a sidechain or "Control Voltage" input for other plugins or as a way to analyze the dynamics of your signal. OR Render it to an audio item, adjust its volume envelope, and then copy that to an envelope on your original signal.
But then I also added a slider labeled "level" which is literally the same thing but you can write it to automation. Not sure why you'd want that, but it's there.

Before I got here just happened to modify Liteon's Summed VU meter to have real VU meter like ballistics, Gain trim and Peak needle with hold that also embeds nicely to MCP. Also included FxChain to embed Gain trim to MCP.
Anyway here it is, hope someone find it useful.
Best Regards
