New version & ownership of (TT) Dynamic Range DR Meter: MAAT.digital
New version available now for "all" platforms.
New offline version coming end of June.
Couldn't find any info about the Foobar component.

MAAT will not only maintain the DRMeter in the future but also improve it into an evolved fully ITU BS.1770 (R128/A-85) compatible universal metering tool (DRMeter MkII). Release is scheduled before end of 2017.

Thank goodness. R128 is a drastic improvement. DR Meter magically gives vinyl rips extra dynamic range, presumably due to noise. R128 is less easily tricked. I find I can trust the loudness range in LU much more.
Thanks for the post.

It's foibles were not even remotely due to noise.  I'll be happy to see that crude metric die a long and agonizing death.

FWIW, R128 seems to have a pretty serious issue as well:

Is 24-bit/192kHz good enough for your lo-fi vinyl, or do you need 32/384?

Fair enough. I hope this can be improved upon in future standards.
However, I will say in the context of my large music library, as well as our library of recordings at work, it does a great job of giving consistent playback levels (I use JRiver for this) and also giving me quick useful info to determine if one of my staff edited properly or not. It is a big step forward and the industry has really latched onto loudness standards. Here's hoping the progress continues.

I find that David Robinson's original algorithm does a better job.  R128 exaggerates the loudness of modern mastering; for metal at the very least.

+1, using it with logitech mediaserver. When R128 was introduced i had ambient music to low in level for my impression. I use RG in metaflac.

With 24bit music you can listen to silence much louder!

Case was kind enough to tell me how to continue using foobar2000 to calculate RG using the original algorithm:

Thanks but i don't use foobar for such things. I use only flac and the limited resampling/packing/RG i still do with the vintage frontah.

I used to use metaflac, but with multiple threads foobar2000 is so much faster.

I tried but i seldom keep my foobar install recent and the foo_rgscan.dll out of the linked 1.1.5 crashes my 1.3.4 version. I may try later.

 VST users may try the free Youlean meter, very clean, neat and scalable UI.
