RTW Mastering Tools Stereo


RTW’s mastering and analyzing instruments for stereo audio

RTW Mastering Tools Stereo is a Masterclass Plugin for stereo audio signals providing RTW meters as plugin stereo software and standalone stereo application for Windows® and Mac OS X®. By transferring the analyzer tools to a pure software that requires no additional hardware, RTW will also make them available to musicians, radio producers, and audio/video engineers who need to meet the resulting stereo implementation specifications required by TV and radio broadcasters. As a means for quality control, the RTW Mastering Tools with their precisely working and easy-to-read stereo instruments ensure compliance with custom specifications. Thanks to intuitive operation, they are equally suitable for users with or without background knowledge.

RTW Mastering Tools Stereo features extensive analysis and display functions for mastering, metering and loudness measurements for single-channel and stereo applications including a wide range of PPM scales and displays, VU appearance and True PPM measurements. With this, the RTW Mastering Tools Stereo executes the functionality of comprehensive equipped TM7 and TM9 instruments including basic and Premium PPM, Loudness, RTA, SSA, Audio Vectorscope, and Correlator, and offers the same degree of functionality and clarity as the hardware models. The instruments can be freely arranged and scaled. Various function parameters offer extra flexibility. Six selectable window frames (landscape and portrait view) and the freely adjustable display window permit the tailorable positioning of the provided instruments. Multiple instances may be used. You can store all setups and layouts as presets. PACE iLok License Manager 5.0 or higher and a PACE iLok Account are used for handling the license and plug-in activation. An iLok USB Smart Key is recommended.
