Hornet Plugins releases VU Meter MK3

Hornet Plugins has just released VU Meter MK3, the third version of their VUMeter plug-in.

The HoRNet VU Meter MK3 is a digital VU meter with auto gain staging and grouping functions, plus a new GUI that supposedly comes straight from the 24th century (or, is it the 24th century as we saw it in 1980s sci-fi movies? well, could be...), and which anyway is said to hide an intelligent tool aimed at improving your gain staging and mixing.

Features include:

  • VU Meter spec. conformity (300ms attack and release time)
  • VU Peak hold
  • RED Blink clipping indicator
  • reference level settable from -60 to 0 dBFS
  • input gain from -30dB to +15dB
  • bar color freely selectable
  • Stereo automatic gain adjustment with 6 different settings
  • Peak protection (no peak can exceed the set limit)
  • Auto Gain and meter setting can be set to whole group at once
  • Eight different assignable groups
  • Stereo display
  • Mac OS X (10.5 onward, Intel only) and Windows support
  • 64bit compatibility on both Mac and Windows
  • Audio Units, VST, VST3, RTAS and AAX formats

HoRNet's VU Meter MK3 is available now for €4.99. More details at
