Pyramix add on
An optional add-on for Pyramix Virtual Studio, Final Check offers measurement and display options for stereo and 5.1 surround mixes. Bargraph VU, PPM (with DIN, Nordic, BBC and EBU presets) are complemented by True Peak meters, which can identify areas likely to cause problems after D/A conversion due to excursions beyond 0dBFS. Phase meters for stereo and surround are available, and stereo spatialization is displayed as a classic goniometer/oscilloscope with two display modes: Phase stereo-meter, which shows a 360 degree plot of the points displayed by the phase oscilloscope, and VU Stereo-Meter, a circular graph showing directional RMS rays. The loudness meter conforms to ITU-R 1770-1 and can be displayed as a bargraph or LUFS numerical value.
