Waves WLM, EBU R-128 and short term levels


Is there any recommendations for short term levels in r-128 specs as long as peaks are under -1dbfs and long term averages at -23LUFS? I didn´t find any, but Waves WLM has "short max" set at -18LUFS in all r-128 presets..

The -18 LUFS "short max" in your meter sounds like a general guideline relative to -23 LUFS Program Loudness as recommended by Waves. Is the Short Term Loudness detailed in your delivery specs?

By the way - how do you like that meter?

Thanks Paul,

So far I haven´t seen anyone mentioning short term max in delivery specs, they just refer to R-128. I was just wondering in general if it´s allowed to go over -18 LUFS for short time.

EBU metering is relatively new thing here, and WLM is my first and only meter for this. So I can´t compare to others. But so far I have no complaints!

the French delivery specs for programs whose duration is under 2 minutes requires that the maximum short-term must be less than or equal to -20 LUFS.
