"NUGEN products have changed my life. My colleagues and I no longer spend four hours trying to get a show into spec."
Cheryl Ottenritter | Ott House Audio
With a unique design focused on primary loudness parameters, VisLM-H combines an instant overview with detailed historical information, enabling you to hit your target first time, every time.
Additional loudness logging and time-code functions allow for proof of compliance reporting and postmortem analysis with frame accurate referencing.
For Pro Tools HDX power users, Visualizer DSP is available to take full advantage of Avid's HDX hardware.
Elegant and simple to use, VisLM-H2 promotes a highly efficient workflow with the ability to drill down to any level of complexity the context demands. With VisLM-H2, your loudness workflow is transparently integrated into the production environment. Now with a fully resizable interface and many additional visualisations, it's even simpler to identify exactly the information you need and choose the configuration that matches your workflow precisely.
Loudness memory workflow accelerators
VisLM-H2 remembers loudness data – up to 12 hours, locked to time-code received directly from your NLE/DAW. Any minor edit or over dub immediately triggers overall loudness updates, eliminating the need for end to end re-measurement. Loudness data is saved with the session allowing full session loudness recall – pick up where you left off. Offline AudioSuite scans can be loaded into the real-time meter for immediate pre-loading of loudness history. ReMEM brings unparalleled workflow acceleration, delivering best-in-class performance to your editing environment today.
Loudness normalisation introduces a common reference point for all stages of audio production, allowing audio professionals to remain in control of audio quality and meet the requirements of current and proposed legislation.

Some of our global broadcast customers
Alan Silverman | Owner/Engineer | Arf! Mastering
"We use VisLM on every project that's headed for TV or theatrical release because it gives us confidence that our mix will be up to spec and optimized for the channel on the first try."
Daniel Jones | Managing Director | Vaudeville Post
"We use NUGEN Audio tools in every mix session across the board. They are fantastic to use and completely do the job."
Florian Camerer | Sound Engineer | Chairman EBU Loudness Group
"The VisLM plug-in drops seamlessly into our workflow no matter what the project. For smaller mixes, which tend to be mixed "as-live", we route it right through the DAW. Most of the time, though, we use VisLM in offline mode, which means we can use it to analyze and correct a completed mix."
