Trying to find how to get the meters to show RMS, but my guess is that VU/PPU (or whatever the acronym is) is the equivalent?

Hi Scar,

I can't see what you are on about here. I have never seen RMS meters? I have the uk peak meters and the vu meters showing. Where have you seen an RMS meter?

SF doesn't do RMS metering. VU metering is similar, but uses a different averaging method.

You can get VST plugins that do RMS metering, but the only way to use them is with the plugin chainer.

Hey there Tommy.

You know you can go to tools -> Statistics to get the avg RMS for the track right?

As was said here, there is no way to monitor the RMS realtime without adding it in as a plugin.

Thanks all. No wuckers. Will treat VU as RMS, and check stats for RMS post bounce.
