Quote of the Day

“Those of you who have home recording studios and must put at least some money away for food should tear your eyes away from the latest ads for new gear and stop drooling all over your new catalogs for a minute and think about this: just because a piece of gear is out of fashion doesn’t mean it’s lost its raison d’ętre.”- Jeff Baxter

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).
