Simple RMS Meter

This Max for Live audio effect is a simple RMS and phase correlation meter. The two numbers at the top show you the average level of the track for each channel, a very useful feature when you're mastering multiple tracks and want to compare their loudness.

Below that is a standard correlation meter. Correlation values between +1 and 0 indicate that the stereo signal is mono compatible, while negative values indicate out-of-phase material resulting in phase cancellation when played back mono.
