Online streaming services turn down loud music to ensure a more consistent listening experience. Our free Loudness Penalty Analyzer tells you how much your music will be turned down by YouTube, Spotify, TIDAL, Pandora and Apple's Sound Check. Dynameter helps you strike the perfect balance of loudness and dynamics, so that your music will sound great on any platform and have a minimal Loudness Penalty.
Dynameter displays a measurement called PSR - the difference between the peak level and the loudness. Higher PSR readings are typically found with more dynamic recordings, whereas heavily limited or clipped material usually shows lower PSR values. Dynameter measures the PSR in realtime, and also displays a colour-coded history graph, giving you an intuitive snapshot view of the dynamic profile of your music.

Dynameter's colour-coding makes is easy to tell how "healthy" your dynamics are. Simply stay in the green and blue and you're all set! If you find that your music dips into the red, brown or even grey, it may mean that your music has restricted dynamics, and that you should apply less compression or limiting. Dynameter's colour-coding was tuned based on 20+ years of mastering experience - it's like having your own personal Mastering Engineer right in your DAW!
When the client heard it, they commented that it 'popped' and 'had so much space' compared to the previous mix. Now I use it on every track I work on. Audio Plugin Guy
