The VisLM plug-in is a loudness meter that's designed to deliver everything intuitively, accurately and immediately.

It can also be fully configured for legacy, platform/sta- tion-specific or internal specifications.

MT 48 AUDIO INTERFACE RECEIVES 'IMMERSIVE' UPGRADE BERLIN, GERMANY — Neumann.Berlin ( has upgraded its MT 48 audio interface with the Monitor Mission, which transforms the unit into a freely configurable monitoring controller.

The upgrade opens up a new range of applications for the unit, particularly in the mixing and mastering sector. The Monitor Mission includes flexible bass management and complex alignment functions to adjust the frequency and time domain characteristics of loudspeakers to the listening position. The downmix feature allows multi- channel audio to be monitored in either mono or stereo. An extensive range of connectivity options make it possible to connect studio monitors in a variety of ways, whether analog or digital, via S/PDIF or ADAT. It's even possible to combine several connection types for one speaker group. Using the four analog monitor outs and an external ADAT converter, systems of up to 7.1.4 can be realized. In addition, the built-in AES67 interface allows the connection of professional, multi-channel converters, such as the Merging Hapi MKII and/or Neumann studio monitors in the AES67 version. The Monitor Mission does not require a download, but is part of the MT 48 firmware from Version 1.6.x, which was released in February. The Monitor Mission is activated via an individual software key.
