Meters: PPM vs WAVE. Whats the difference?

Post by hesca116 » Thu Dec 07, 2017 7:59 pm

Hello folks,

The manual does´nt explain the difference between PPM and WAVE metering on the meter bridge. After experimenting, I cannot tell whats the difference between them.

How do they behave differently?

This is for when you have the Meter Bridge enabled on the MixConsole (check the top right menu). Tracks with recorded audio will show a waveform instead of a peak meter.
Every time someone says "it must be easy to add/fix", a programmer dies.

Cubase Pro and Wavelab Pro (latest), Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, MSI Z87-G45 GAMING, i5 4690k, GeForce GTX 760, almost every Steinberg plugin and expansion, Trilian, Komplete 10, etc etc etc etc
