Quickest Ways To Measure Integrated LUFS Values?

Is there a way to quickly and accurately measure the integrated LUFS of a track?

I find myself to be repetitively trying to nail a target loudness value, for tracks that I master... and I have to press play, and let either iZotope Insight or Youlean Loudness Meter measure it... but it has to play the entire track (so I hit play, go AFK, come back... and repeat until I nail it, then make sure its not distorting or clipping in a bad way, at the loudest spots... then render).

Playback at 8X or a quick button should be available some where?

What say you?

Nugen Audio LM-Correct

Sound Forge Pro 12 or 13.

There are probably others. Neither of the above are cheap.

LM-Correct will adjust the level of a file to a specified target integrated loudness number. It will apply an inter-sample peak limiter if necessary. But you can also just measure without modifying.

Here for the gear

I use the Loudness function in the sws-extension
In Reaper.

It’s great!

Lives for gear

What's your DAW? In Pro Tools for example you can load up Insight as an Audiosuite plugin and just hit "analyze" and it'll go as fast as it can through the highlighted file. In Nuendo you can use a faster-than-realtime statistic analysis. I forget where it's located. It's in one of the menus. Also on a file ("event").

If you're talking about your entire mix and not just clips/events/files then that's a different matter. In Nuendo as far as I can recall you can use a loudness track and you can trigger a non-realtime analysis on it. Pro Tools has no such option that I'm aware of. Best I can think of is just biting the bullet and bouncing/exporting the mix and measuring the file.
