BA Tech has released BusDriver, a simple freeware stereo VU meter in VST plugin format for Windows.
Easy control for master bus.You can listen solo L or R channel.Mute and mono buttons.And -20dB atten option.
Vu meters are carefully optimized for true reading.
I know it’s not big deal but maybe you can use it. I released it for now but i will add midi learn for control from hardware.
This plugin is available at no cost and can be downloaded on KVR Audio forums.
