It has the ITU BS.1770 loudness metering (stereo), but it would require a separate PC with calibrated inputs if you're on a mac.
Maybe it is still a cheap solution, especially if you have an old PC lying around.
I'm running them side by side right now for a test.
The Orban is very cool, don't get me wrong. But since it's real-time I'm feeling like I have to do the average myself. I like how the DMM just spits me a number, done.
If M plans on mixing through the meter I would try out the Orban for sure. The reading on both meters seems to be the same.
Since LKFS appears to be an "unlocked" algorithm, if you will, I'm hoping that it can inexpensively included in all workstations.
