Klanghelm's VUMT is a metering tool and channel processing Plug-In that I Personally have used for many years, This lasted update has gone above and beyond what I as a user could have expected.

The standard VUMT now comes with three different metering types VU, PPM and RMS. Every metering type can be fully customized to fit the users exact need. 24dB of clean input trim or gain with both left and right channels able to be linked, a mono maker and a Mid Side meter and gain makes the newest standard VUMT a amazing addition to any setup.

VUMT Deluxe takes things a huge step even farther by adding  dedicated Left and Right channel phase inversion buttons, new monitoring and metering modes, a very smooth high and low pass filter at 6, 12 and 24 dB octave slopes, a very nice dynamic eq with high and low pass filters and a single band bell shape and different Q values and a mono maker from 20 to 20000KHz.

Every aspect of this Plug-in seems to have been redone to make it more then just a simple gain setting and level metering tool.
