TC Electronic Releases New Features

News Image
TC Electronic has announced the release of new features for its hardware unit supporting the LM6 and LM2 Loudness Radar Meters and the TC Icon control software (DB6, DB4 MKII, DB8 MKII, System 6000 MKII and LM2).
The user can now decide on a time interval from one hour to one week at which the logging data will be saved and organised for access and future reference.
Units are connected via Ethernet to a PC or Mac running TC Icon software that will pull the data automatically and save it in a folder specified by the user.
The TC Icon software is a remote control application that allows for controlling and auto-logging from a number of units.

New Peak to Loudness Ratio Parameter
Peak to Loudness Ratio (PLR) is used to measure 'squashing', which has an adverse effect on clarity, intelligibility and audio quality at large.
PLR is also relevant when tailoring a track or a program to a certain amount of downstream headroom. ATSC A/85 and EBU R128 provide 22 dB of headroom, while Sound Check in iTunes offers 16 dB of headroom.
Lowering PLR further only destroys audio quality without gaining loudness on any modern platform, so users are highly recommended to keep an eye on this crucial reading and save their next recording for future generations.
