Also Izotope Elements should be able to do it (which Pro Tools gave away for free as a gift) within Pro Tools. Full RX7 or Ozone can.

"Doesn't sound like" won't take you far. Did you try it?

I doubt he did. Waves has demos so it would be worth a shot. I think the OP doesn't want to consider anything other than his original workflow. We've given him some worthy ideas along with the thing of most normalization plugins make the audio sound bad. But Waves WLM will do the job he wants and I think Flux has a plugin that will do the job as well. There's so many ways to skin this cat

Default True Peak Normalization: Workflow?

I do have RX Elements as a loyalty reward. I'll look into that.

I just don't think you quite understand what I'm trying to accomplish (although I thought I spelled it out). You're suggesting I gain the file up/down to where it's just kissing the -2.0dBTP threshold? Seems wonky to me. I'd rather have offline analysis without the limiter to worry about, ideally plus the ability to change gain within the same plugin.

Regardless, the workflow I used on my latest project:

1) Print audio in real time
2) Analyze printed file in real time using MAAT DRMeter MKII (multitasking while listening to print for problems)
3) Use AudioSuite Gain plugin to bring file to -2.0dBTP
4) Export to desired format(s)

It worked pretty well. Not ideal, but better than using three different programs.

Andrei is suggesting you try the program he mentioned. Did you? Have you looked at the other programs mentioned and demoe'd them? Probably not. And as far as manually changing the output levels that's part of doing good work and NOT wonky. People do it all the time.

But if you want a single program to do the job, in addition to Waves WLM take a look at Junger Audio Level Magic https://www.flux.audio/project/junge...o-level-magic/ Not cheap but then again good tools are worth the money.

You're going to have to get out of your comfort level rut and open your horizons to other/better ways of working.

Then keep using your system. What seems wonky to me is to spend days in a forum asking for a quicker way to do something you already have a solution for.
BTW, I wouldn't complain about a $400 plugin when you want a company that charges $1000 for an EQ to make a plugin that specifically matches your workflow.

You explained it perfectly my friend.

I'll tell you something - I sure wouldn't want the op to go anywheres near my work. I spend too much time on it to have someone muck it up with normalization. Manual gain ride with a light limiter; watch the metering and trust the ears.

Or clip gain and analysis.
We've only been just trying to help here.
