I’m looking for something with the dimensions and orientation of the NYSTHI Single Slim VU Meter which is handy for a lot of things besides audio, but I’m hoping to find one that behaves like one of the ten meters in NYSTHI GraphicMeter, for CVs and such
No VU ballistics, no RMS timing, no non-linear transfer function, nothing like that. Just have the height of the bar be directly proportional to the signal level.
With, say, a steady 5V input, the Single Slim VU Meter is pinned. On an AS MonoVUmeter, 12 out of the 15 dots are lit. Both of those do their own jobs and do it well. On the NYSTHI Graphic Meter the green bar is exactly half-way to the 10, which is good, but it takes up a lot of real estate if you want the meters to be immediately next to the module you are monitoring.
Some of the optional modes in NYSTHI GraphicMeter (“unipolar” and/or “absolute values”) are nice though.
For now, I’ve been using “Single Slim VU Meter”. The Peak Hold bar is somewhat useful for monitoring triggers too.
Is there a meter that does all this already?
