Orban releases public beta of Loudness Meter software

Orban announced today a public beta of a software Loudness Meter for Windows. The free download can be found here.

Here is an excerpt from the press release:


San Leandro, CA, April 10, 2008 Orban today
announced that the first public beta of Orban
Loudness Meter software for Windows XP and Vista
is now available for free download from

This is the first of a family of Orban meters.
Future paid versions will offer upgraded features
including logging, surround monitoring, and
oversampled peak measurements that accurately
indicate the peak level of the audio after D/A conversion.


The Orban software runs on Windows XP and Vista
computers having 1.5 GHz or faster Intel Pentium
4 or Intel-compatible processors that implement
the SSE2 instruction set. While the software can
be driven by any installed Windows sound device,
monitoring playback from an application like
Windows Media Player requires the sound hardware to support Windows Wave I/O.
