But yes - it can be done in realtime, as it's basically no different than an Leq SPL measuremnet with a little bit of EQ and thresholding thrown in.

For my own work, I've been using Youlean loudness metering plugin.

 It's fantastic, very powerful, and affordable. There is a free version but I happily paid $29 for the pro license.

Yeah, I've been using YouLean heavily over the last 6 months or so. Highly recommend!

I've not done a deep dive into either, but I've used both. The visual interface is quite different, but for me the big difference is how easily YouLean allows you to see LUfs over time with a very easy to read and understand time line. It's also a bit simpler to use as a standalone although it CAN be used as a plug in as well.

YouLean also has a free option that has plenty of features for most people.

I use both. I have WLM in the broadcast studio which is patched on my "safety record" console output track in Reaper. I'm multitracking and mixing for broadcast, then I patch an output of the broadcast desk back into Reaper for the safety record. WLM is set up on input FXof that track.

For Youlean, I use that when I'm mixing something in post.

I find Youlean much easier to read, and much faster to get to the proper Lufs. It has a fantastic display.


I am still using WLM simply because I have it already. It's not that it's bad, it's just not as easy to navigate or watch. Youlean has it beat on UI.
