DK Audio meter setup

Hi John,
Thanks for taking the time to do this

Wondering how you are getting to the DK Audio Meter from Pro Tools. Are you multing the A 1-2 output to an AES output which feeds the meter?

Are you measuring LUFS on the bars on the far right of the screen, and aiming for -6 after the master chain / limiter?

Thank you!

I'm feeding it from an AES/EBU mult (through a Z-Systems Digital Detangler) of the A 1-2 Output.

My DK meter came out before LUFS were a thing, so I've found that the NBC scale is essentially showing the same as LUFS, but I'm not exactly sure what the scale is technically showing.

Yes, looking at -6 on the output after all master fader plugins; this doesn't mean trying to hit it for every song. This is just my mark to watch out it's getting pretty loud.
