Pro tools meters

If I and my recorded audio to come in around -24 LKFS/LUFS, what is the best way to use pro tools metering to do that? Or a third party meter, or a combo of pro tools and third party.. whatever.

Are you wanting to record that level, or deliver to that spec?

I want to record at that level. I’m just trying to figure out how to use pro tools metering to get me close. Mixing to that spec is not a problem

LKFS/LUFS isn't a spec that's really meant to measure instantaneous levels. For broadcast and other deliveries, it is measured by running the entire length of the program material and looking at the integrated level of the entire show. That being said, there are short term and momentary measurements in most of the plugins, but it wouldn't make sense to put these plugins across all your tracks. Probably the best way to get everything in the ballpark is to use calibrated monitoring. After using it for a while at the same monitor level and getting used to the perceived level of signals at -24, you should be able to judge it with your ears to within a few db. Pro Tools' metering doesn't offer a LKFS/LUFS option in the channel meters, only in their Pro Limiter. jwh1192's suggestion of using the VU option and correlating that to LKFS/LUFS should get you close as well.
