This plugin is way too realistic, and needle can overshoot. It's accurate when it come to meter ballistic model but if you want a precise vu meter you have to look for something else. Peak led only work if signal go pass 0dBFS not the 0dBVU which is nice, it's doesn't weight down your CPU too, you can put it across 100 tracks.

I checked this plugin out of curiosity. This is the best VU meter I've tested. It's much easier to read, because the needle doesn't move as fast. Speed can be adjusted in steps from 1 to 9 by the way. If someone wants VU to respond just like Waves version, it can be done. Default setting is 5 and it's so much easier on the eyes. I couldn't believe how smooth the needle was. Even when I made the GUI much smaller or much bigger, it didn't cause any issues. Smooth operation all the way. Simply put - it's a pleasure to work with this meter. I just compared it with Waves VU Meter and they both reacted to track crossing 0 dBFS at the exact same time. Peak LED works very well. I like the fact that it lights up only for a moment. It doesn't stay lit until I click on it, which I find very annoying in Waves version. It's enough that each track in most DAWs will let user know that 0 dBFS had been crossed. I don't need VU meter to retain this information all the time. Unlike Waves VU Meter (Mono version), this plugin doesn't force the track's signal to mono. Therefore it can be used on a full mix even in Mono mode as a single small window and signal will stay stereo. Props to developer for coding this plugin. It's a really well done job.

An empty, black window. I put x32, nothing is visible, I put it through "jbridge", - a black window. I installed x64, - a black window. Everywhere, no matter how I install it. - there's A BLACK WINDOW everywhere!

Accurate but lacks some few features, other than that it's a useful tool though
