While EBU R-128 loudness normalization is in the process of being adopted by a majority of European countries, most real-time loudness meters aren’t still completely adapted to mixing engineers’ workflows, as continuous project measurements are always required to keep consistent loudness values. By slaving the loudness measurement to an incoming time code, every loudness and true peak values are constantly recorded and time stamped, allowing their calculation at any time. Engineers no longer need to manually pause, resume, or even start a measurement over to keep a relevant loudness monitoring.
