Audio meters are invaluable tools when it comes to audio recording, mixing, mastering and repair, but they can be somewhat difficult to fully understand. So join audio expert Joe Albano in this advanced Audio Concept course, and learn the ins and outs of audio metering!
Audio meters are much more than the basic level meter that bounces along to the music in your DAW. From wave shape to frequency balance, audio meters offer all kinds of useful information about audio signals. There’s a lot of technicality involved in learning them, but luckily Joe Albano is here to explain it all!
The course starts with some background on level measurement concepts, and an in-depth look at all types of level metering and the different scales and ballistics available. Joe reveals the various standards and recommendations used in the industry, and explains how they can help you get optimal and consistent audio levels in your recordings. You learn everything about oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers and vectorscopes, and how they can help you fix problems like phase, frequency, and stereo imbalances. You'll also get a deep understanding of advanced displays, such as the 2D and 3D spectrogram available in iZotope RX, and you'll discover their practical and creative applications.
So watch this 20-tutorial course by Joe Albano, and learn the science of audio metering with audio expert Joe Albano!
Very informative as are all of Joe's courses. Especially useful to me are the sections covering the new loudness standards, LUF's, true peak metering etc. I'd recommend this course and all the others in Joe's Audio Concept series to anyone starting out in audio recording. It's essential knowledge and no one explains it better than he does!!

Highly technical content but very enlightening and useful none the less. Albano is very knowledgeable and presents it in a logical and understanding way. Thanks for the tutorial. I enjoyed it very much

This is yet another sublime course in the series with the mighty Joe Albano at the helm guiding us with both theoretical and practical knowledge of these technical, but sometimes unglamorous aspects of audio production, which if mastered can truly facilitate rather than hamper the creative process. Highest recommendation!

Solid all-around coverage of the do’s and don’ts in audio metering. Perhaps a bit more coverage could have been given to optimal operating levels for analog emulation plugins— and possibly, in validating audio interface operating levels for hardware integration.
Overall however, the treatment is an excellent reference to developing a complete understanding of a topic that doesn’t often get the attention it deserves.
