MiniMeters is a simple standalone audio metering app for Windows & macOS.
Monitor your system audio on Windows, take in any input / loopback device on Windows & macOS (more info), or simply drop MiniMetersServer at the end of your master channel in the DAW of your choice.
MiniMeters is designed to be minimal and persistent showing nearly no UI elements when audio is not playing. It can be used in a single horizontal bar (default) or with some modules "popped out" to new windows.
MiniMeters includes a wide variety of themes.
Themes are fully editable and customizable. The included template is a great place to start.
Everywhere: Just drop the included MiniMetersServer (VST3 / AU) plugin on your DAW's master channel (after any effects) to easily route audio into MiniMeters.
On Windows: Capture your full system audio by default.
On macOS: Use an external loopback driver. There are many good tools for this.For more info check the help documents.
