VU meter

Short for volume unit meter, a meter that is designed to respond to sound in the same way our ears do. Instead of measuring peaks and transients, the VU meter has slower response that shows average levels. It is referenced to +4 dBu at 0 VU and has specific needle ballistics that are set by ANSI (American National Standards Institute).
