Integrating loudness measurement and correction into an existing workflow can present something of a challenge. Measurement of the entire audio program is required, and if this is conducted in real-time, workflows can become impractical or even impossible if a rapid turn-around is required – thankfully Avid has the answer in the AudioSuite plug-in format.
AudioSuite allows for faster-than-real-time operation of an AAX plug-in, which opens the possibility of streamlining your loudness workflow in ways that are simply not possible with other NLE and DAW solutions. With build-in handling of both Analysis and Render runs, measurement and or correction is handled natively within the standard AudioSuite container—perfect for handling program loudness!
