Crookwood Console Custom VU
« on: October 28, 2011, 06:00:53 am »

Just wanted to share some coolness for other Crookwood users.  Had this designed to slot into the console (instead of buying the crookwood vu versions)

^^^^^ Looks great. You should glue a piece of transparent grey plastic over the opening to really give it that pro look.

Nice meter... I have been messing with Pk>VU meters for decades.

If the scale is calibrated in even dB step size, you can see the crest factor from length of the floating red bar, which will be the difference between Peak and VU in dB or ratio of peak to VU(average).

The red bar will be shorter for heavily compressed program and longer for percussive transient material.

Final version with beveled scale attached instead of big CNC slot.

Thanks John. Correct the scale is 40 x 1dB steps.



why is my username now "archive JLM Audio" I know I am getting old but no need to rub it in  ;)
