Updated to v1.5:
2 versions of skin - Original and a new one that has only the volume control and the metre's with a transparent background.
You may not like this second skin, but for my needs I keep it on the taskbar and so prefer the minimal approach.
Also cleaned the code, removed unnecessary components.
Here's the new Skin, remember the background is completely transparent so the black is actually my windows taskbar.
Hope you like it...
I do have some issues still with the setup which doesn't seem to be possible to resolve by adjustment of the settings for the three metre's within the skin. May I ask, is this meant to be simply a 'fun' tool or is it meant as a 'pro' reference tool?
I suspect the former, which is a shame.
But one thing that seems difficult to get right is the fact that the peaks and clipping don't 'match' each other. for example, how can the clipping show when the peaks aren't at the end of the metre? Or, the vice versa, how can the peaks max out but not clip? I'm trying to get as close to resembling my DAW metre's as possible but am failing!
I expect it's a calibration issue, but I am not a VU calibration expert so have no idea of the correct settings, is there someone that could help please?
One thing that isn't really explained is the sensitivity of the Gain setting. For example, can you set it to 2.05? Or even 2.005? These settings are possibly neglible but could present a more accurate representation of the signal level.
I would like to know if Peak returns a value? So When the Peak reaches Max it then, and only then, turns the Clip on for a specified time.
Thanks As a side note, can we please have an option to save to a specified folder, it's a bit annoying having to keep locating a folder to save to each time you want to create an *.rmskin package, thanks
