What Does Bute Loudness Suite 2 Do?
Many producers are moving towards mixing and mastering within loudness specifications set by major streaming and broadcasting platforms for quality assurance.
Loudness indicates the perceived level of a signal that is indicative of human hearing, making BUTE Loudness Suite 2 is a useful reference tool when mixing or mastering with an integrated True Peak Brickwall Limiter for guaranteeing no overshoots.
The proprietary algorithm provides accurate loudness metering data on a beautiful and completely interactive graphical user interface which clearly highlights areas requiring your attention, while our limiting algorithm provides the utmost transparency for a natural sound that stays faithful to your mix.
Smart, Synchronized Workflow
Loudness metering tools are ideal for balancing music, dialogue and sound effects whether in stereo or up to Dolby Atmos 7.1.2 surround sound.
Long-form content is made much easier to deal with using our smart history overview.
Get an overview of up to 10 hours of content and navigate to any section of a track with ease using the interactive display.
BUTE's custom alert system will clearly point out areas that go out with a user-specified range and any True Peak overshoots.
A wide array of industry-standard presets are included.
Mixing and Mastering with Bute
All of our BUTE plugins are compatible with VST, AU, and AAX (including Audio Suite), so they will synchronize harmoniously with almost any DAW.
The smart auto re-metering feature gives instantaneous feedback on how loudness will be affected by changes to the mix so there is no need to re-meter the whole mix.
Readings for Absolute/Relative Scale, True Peak/LUFS, and Max/Live modes are easy to toggle between from the main display.
Powerful Compact Read-Out View
When screen estate and CPU are at a premium, a compact read-out helps keep things optimized, and BUTE is completely resizable.
Even while in compact view, easily switch between display settings and tweak limiting configurations, while saving screen estate for other programs.
Stay Faithful to Your Mix
Smooth out peaks by adjusting pre-gain and selecting a preset release curve - Transparent, Natural, or Smooth - which have been designed to make gain reduction as unnoticeable as possible.
The release time configures automatically based on multiple properties of the input signal, and the dial is used to set the multiplication factor of the calculated release time, enabling fine-tuning.
BUTE can also be utilized as a maximizer to push quieter mixes louder without sacrificing dynamics and clarity, while taking care of True Peak overshoots.
The result? Audio stays faithful to the original sound, whilst fitting the loudness spec of any platform.
