Where to find Dynamic Range Meter that works in foobar?

Hello,

is there any free Dynamic Range Meter plugin out there?

1.1.1. is the latest version, but it's still buggy and crashes sometimes. So called "DR" isn't a great determinant of perceived loudness anyway, far better going with something like EBU R128 standard, LUFS (integrated).

Aha thanks for the input =) Wanted to contribute to the DRM database, but thats maybe not so correct as information about "good" tracks?

DR is popular with some on-line communities who like to complain about certain aspects of modern mastering techniques, whilst actual mastering engineers are far more likely to use their ears, or LUFS integrated, (both far better determinants of perceived loudness than DR). DR for a single track or a whole album is pretty meaningless on its own, but I guess a certain amount of info can be gleaned when comparing the DR figures for different albums, or different masters of albums.

Not sure if there's an easy way to get FB2K to display the LUFS integrated for each track, it may be part of the ReplayGain functionality, but I haven't really looked into it, I usually use RX5 Advanced or various limiting plugins and meters to get that info. When I am mastering an album, one track at a time, I'll try to hit a good LUFS figure for all the track, and then when listening back it's usually pretty close, maybe need to adjust some tracks a dB or two at most, to get everything sitting well together.
