Ask Video – Audio Concepts 203 – Advanced Metering

Audio meters are invaluable tools when it comes to audio recording, mixing, mastering, and repair, but they can be somewhat difficult to fully understand. So join audio expert Joe Albano in this advanced audio concept course and learn the ins and outs of sound measurement!
An audio meter is much more than a basic level meter that bounces to the beat of the music in your workstation. From waveform to frequency balance, audiometers provide all kinds of useful information about audio signals. There are many technical nuances in learning them, but luckily Joe Albano is here to explain it all!
