Loudness meter for adhering to CALM act.

Hey there everyone.
I just wanted to get an idea of what everyone is using to stay with in the specs of the CALM act? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commercial_Advertisement_Loudness_Mitigation_A...

This is to take effect on 12/13/12, but the network I deal with has started enforcing it now.

What kind of Loudness meter or FCP plug in?

Thanks Everyone.

Steve.

I have seen a couple of options from TC Electronics in my freelance travels.

http://www.tcelectronic.com/lm6.asp
http://www.tcelectronic.com/lm2-plugin.asp

I think this supports FCPX, Logic, Media Composer, ProTools and a few more - not sure about FCP7

Pretty sure there is a demo download too

best wishes

Thanks. I've seen these too.
We are running FCP 6 and I'm not sure if I will find anything for that.
Just wanted to see how others are dealing with this new spec.

Steve.

FCP like most NLEs are not designed as audio finishing tools for broadcast. DAWs like ProTools and Fairlight have proper loudness metering built in or there are plugins designed to do this.

As far as I know, no-one has developed such plugins for FCP or are likely to. Part of the problem is that FCP doesn't have a bus architecture to enable plugins to be put on an output, just individual clips which isn't much use.
