MiniMeters is a simple standalone audio metering app for Windows, macOS, & Linux.

Monitor your System Audio*Any Input, or insert the MiniMetersServer Plugin (VST3/AU/CLAP) at the end of your master channel in the DAW of your choice.

Customize the layout in a horizontal bar (perfect for above or below your audio tool of choice) or pop out modules to create a custom layout.

* Not supported on all systems. See the system audio capture support table below.

 --- Please download the demo before purchasing. --- 

Discord - Twitter - Help Page


  • 6 modules to choose from to build your perfect metering setup: Spectrogram, Waveform, Peak/LUFS, Stereometer, Oscilloscope, & Spectrum Analyzer. 
  • Pop out any module to create a custom multi-window layout. Or stick with the default single bar.
  • Capture your default audio device on Windows, macOS Ventura, or Linux.
  • Included VST3/AU/CLAP plugin to send your DAWs audio into MiniMeters.
  • Dive deep and create your own color scheme to set the mood.
  • No copy protection, just download and install.


  • Spectrogram:
    • Analyze the frequency content of your audio over time.
  • Waveform
    • View the waveform from the incoming audio.
    • View the multi-band RMS history with the "History" overlay.
  • Peak/LUFS
    • View the immediate LUFS loudness.
  • Stereometer
    • See your audio's stereo width and balance with 3 modes: "Scaled" zooms in on the lower volume audio to show detail you might be missing. "Linear" shows a unipolar view of your audio. "Lissajous" shows an unadulterated lissajous function. 
    • Switch the color to "RGB" or "Multiband" to see stereo width and frequency content at the same time.
  • Oscilloscope
    • See a detailed waveform view of your audio immediately. With "Pitch Tracking" mode you can easily see the shape of your waveform.
  • Spectrum Analyzer
    • View the frequency content of your audio in "Left/Right" or "Mid/Side" mode. 
    • "Frequency Readout" shows the loudest frequency in your audio. Great for finding that note or tricking your friends into thinking you have perfect pitch. 
    • Adjust the "Slope" to 4.5dB to emulate FabFilter Pro Q 3 or Voxengo Span's default slope and aim for your mix to be flat on the meter like me.

Hi, I've really been enjoying MiniMeters, I was just wondering one thing:

Both the Waveform meter and Stereo meter share the same colour scheme representing low, mid and high frequencies, yet the only options for the Spectrum analyser are the static colour line in FFT mode and the seemingly arbitrary red/magenta colours in "bar/both" modes, I think it would be awesome and quite intuitive if the colours of the bars in the bar/both mode followed the same colour transitions of the frequency ranges like the other meters. :) 

Anyway, just a thought, keep up the amazing work!

Thanks for the suggestion. I have considered the same thing, but the "arbitrary" colors are simply assigned to volume. You can customize them in the theme settings if you'd like.


Love your app. I've only had it two days and it's already improved my production workflow considerably.

Four feature requests:

  1. It would be super handy if the modules could be snapped into multiple rows and/or columns. The current "one row or floating" setup is a bit difficult to adjust. It gets the job done, but is way too fiddly. Adding a "layout" option with different frames to select from would be great.
  2. I'd love to be able to alt-click, and have the reference markers "stick" to the meters (until a new click is detected). Would make it way easier to judge gain changes in the waveform and spectrum views.
  3. Button/shortcut to freeze a "ghosted" snapshot overlay (at 25-50% opacity) in most of the meters.
  4. Switchable DBU labels in the peak meter (can't gain-stage without 'em).

Also, why is the Hz ceiling fixed? A lot of us are working at >96khz, and definitely producing/manipulating frequencies beyond the current window limit.

- Neb

Hey! Thanks for the suggestions. MiniMeters is meant to remain simple and the end goal is approachability. I don't want to increase the complexity too much.

1. In the 1.0 release there will be a far more customizable layout system.
2. This is is a good idea but I don't really have plans to add this at the moment.
3. Also a great idea. I will consider something along these lines.
4. I don't personally use those in my music making workflow so I have no real baseline idea of how or why to add this. If you have any resources that will help me understand the usefulness of this I can consider using it.

As for higher sample rates, I will likely add 48khz support as that is commonly used in film. For higher sampling rates it might be best to look elsewhere. MiniMeters is meant to simply show you what you're hearing and to provide a useful too during music creation.

Hey, your product is very user-friendly! If the "Correlation Meter" function is added, it may be even better!


Hey, would it be possible to implement a way to change the speed of the waveform like I've visualized here? I was sound designing kicks, and thought it would be nice to see the kick's shape with a bit more detail, which could probably be achieved by making the waveform move faster.

It's currently like this in the first image, but I manually slowed down my sample to get more detail on the waveform in the second image. It could maybe work with the oscilloscope too. Also this annoying uneven sub is exactly what I'm trying to work on lol.

Anyways thanks for making this amazing tool, I haven't yet bought the full version, but I am planning to do so once I've used this for a bit longer.

Yeah! I already have that in the v1.0 update which I am actively working on. Thank you for the suggestion.

Also, it would be great to create a button that, when checked, This information will show up only by hovering the mouse because it is disturbing when it is always there as a default. 

Another great option would be to create an option to play with its speed because, from what I see now, it is jumping very fast from one peak to another, and it isn't easy to read because it shows the info only for half a second or so.  Maybe the solution would be to tell it to read only every second or so and not every bit—just an idea.  

1) It would be great if you will create the option to view the waveform and history in different modules because then it would be broader and clearer.

2) It would be great if you will create the option to set up the width of the waveform because now that's the only width that the waveform can be, and it is very hard to notice dynamic changes like that (the track or master volume does not affect it, which is a good thing).

Thanks for the suggestions. I am aware of the desire to move them to separate modules. I will consider options on how to do that correctly in v1.0. I have a few ideas how to make that user-friendly.

When you refer to width I'm unsure if you mean volume or speed. I plan to expand on both of those options in v1.0 regardless. But any insight would be helpful.

Thank you, I'm not a plugin expert, but it seems like that knob of input gain will be the solution. It should not affect the sound level in DAW, only the graphic level in the plugin.      

(4 edits)

In addition to the above, it would be great, but it may be a bit complex to create, a button that when checked, will automatically normalize the last maximum peak level and put it in the zero. This will ensure that the plugin width is used all the way and that we are not missing some peaks that go above the zero line—just an idea. Maybe you will figure it better.

i want refund this program it doesnt work.

I bought the program because the demo ran well

When running the program, the mouse moves, but the screen stops and The program doesn't even show up


Hello, I assume you also sent a message in the Discord this morning. I am sorry you're running into issues. If you are indeed the same individual I am willing to provide support or a refund there. If you would prefer to reach out to itch.io for a refund you can do it via this page: https://itch.io/support

As I also said in the Discord server: I would recommend trying these steps if you have not already tried them: https://minimeters.app/help/behaving/

I can also provide any support needed. I am sure we can get this working on your machine, but I would just need your PC Specs, and OS to get started there. I am willing to help here, Discord, or via my contact email: support@minimeters.app

After I opened the program, it couldn't be found at all on my desktop, but it is currently running and can be captured using OBS. May I ask what is the solution? The same result applies to reinstalling after uninstallation.

Hey, sorry you're running into this issue. This usually happens after removing a monitor that was plugged in and had MiniMeters on it. If you follow the steps here it should correct it: https://minimeters.app/help/behaving/

Afterwards, make sure "Reposition Offscreen Windows" is enabled in the settings and it should no longer happen. Let me know if you need additional help!

Just wanted to say big ups for your product. Honestly been a game changer for me. I have been highly recommending it to all my other fellow producers. really looking forward to what you bring to V1. Glad to have a notification with lots of updates. 

I have a small request, not sure if this is possible in your current version. But It would be nice to be able to see a clear distinction to M/S. For example please see the attached screenshot of Span for an example Purple for Mid and pink for Side


Thanks again for your work and I look forward to your future updates.  BeNNs. 

Hey! You can definitely edit the color of each line but there is not an option for backgrounds that match at the moment. Take a look at the Light_Shard theme. It looks like the following:

You can also create your own theme: https://minimeters.app/help/theming/


Can you please show instructions on changing the colors like in the Image above? I just downloaded the last version, and I don't have the option to change the colors like in the Image. And I want to stay on direct theme while doing it.

Hey! You can change the colors by copying the Direct.txt theme file to a new file like HzHz.txt and adding the following lines:

spectrum_analyzer_main: 255,90,120
spectrum_analyzer_secondary: 70, 160, 255

You an access the file by following the directions here: https://minimeters.app/help/theming/ Make sure to rename the file as Direct.txt gets overwritten at launch.

Much appreciated!

I am a windows user If I try to change the audio device now, the program closes, but I don't know how to solve this.


Hey, sorry you’re running into this. I few other Windows users pointed this out to me but I have not been able to replicate it on my Windows machines. Could you tell me what audio devices you’re using on you PC? If you’d like to reach out for more personalized support you can email me at support@minimeters.app

I’m actively looking for a solution here so any info would be helpful. Thank you!

I'm using cubase 10.5 and audio interface is RME babyface pro 

However, sometimes the audio device changes when the program ends.

I hope my answer will be good help to you

Thank you. I just released an update yesterday. Could you try deleting your settings and updating to the new version?

Hey, so im having the issue where I pin the plugin  and everything works fine.  But as soon as i full screen my DAW, (Ableton 11) it disappears and i cant seem to get it back on with my DAW being full screen.  Any help? Cheers!

Hey! Unfortunately on both macOS and Windows there are restrictions on apps overlaying full screen apps. For instance, on macOS they only allow menubar apps to overlay fullscreen apps. I’m working on that but it will take some time.

Thanks! I was just making sure I wasnt the only one with this issue. BTW works perfect on WINDOWS/PC. Only having this issue with MACOS. Besides that, this plugin is awesome and great customer service :) 

That would be amazing :) Love the plugin!

I just bought it, but I can only run it via the "Application" from the folder where I downloaded it. How do I run it as a VST within Ableton? I've moved the .dll files to my VST3 folder but it doesn't appear after rescanning it. Any ideas? 

Hey! Sorry you're running into this issue. I'm not sure what .dll files you've copied to your VST3 folder but VST3 plugins have the .vst3 extension and often appear like folders.

Please try running the installer again to ensure the plugin has installed correct. It should install to C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3 (Steinberg Article about this). And make sure your DAW is looking for VST3 plugins in that folder. If you're still having issues let me know.

- Joe

I just reinstalled it in the correct location and the only VST3 file included is the MiniMetersServer.vst3 file. Is that what should be happening or should there be another file in the folder once I've installed it?

That's correct! If you open that plugin in your DAW and then select "MiniMeters Plugin" from the "Audio Device" section in MiniMeters' settings page you should be receiving your DAWs audio correctly.

Hi! I just bought MiniMeters and I wanted to run it on my 2nd monitor which is 1080x1920 and it's flipped vertically, but I can't seem to get minimeters narrow enough to fit. I didn't know if there is a way to shrink it more, or what I would really like to see is a way to put it on the left side and have it run up and down vertically instead of horizontal. Thank you for your time!


Hey! Sorry you’re running into that limitation. As of the current version (0.8.12) you can pop out the modules and create whatever layout you’d like. I believe disabling some modules may also allow for it to shrink more. v1.0 will have more customizable layouts that may suit your needs though.

Awesome I will definitely try that! Can't wait to see what yall do for v1.0!

Have an external GPU connected to my mac mini but i'm experiencing severe lag issues on the UI.

External GPU is RX550, without it it's fine.

I have Hardware Accelleration available, both HEVC and H264 codecs.


Hey! I'm sorry you're running into issues. I'm curious what it looks like on your end as I don't have an external GPU to test with at the moment.

MiniMeters does send quite a bit of data to the GPU every frame and I assume the latency of an external GPU is the bottleneck here. I am rewriting the graphics side of things right now with the intention of better supporting external GPUs and graphics adapters without acceleration which should improve your situation. Unfortunately, I don't have an ETA at the moment but I am aiming for the next few months. If you cannot wait you're welcome to reach out at support (at) minimeters.app

- Joe

Thanks, sent you an email!

I'm unsure if this is a bug or user error, but I have Ableton open on my main monitor (screen 1), and MiniMeters open on my laptop screen (screen 2). When I remove my main monitor display, it shifts everything to the laptop screen (screen 1). Now, if I open MiniMeters again, for a split second, it opens in the top left corner and then hides itself, almost as if MiniMeters still thinks there are two screens connected. I've tried using Win + Arrow Keys to move MiniMeters, but it seems to have no effect.


Hey! Sorry you're running into this. I previously had it automatically move windows back on screen when a display was disconnected, but a related issue caused me to default to turning that off. This will be fixed in the next update (0.8.13) which will be out soon.

In the meantime if you're the type to mess around with settings files you're welcome to navigate to `%AppData\MiniMeters`, open `settings.json` and add or set `"reposition_offscreen_windows" to true` Alternatively feel free to reach out on the MiniMeters Discord and I can help you modify the file, or modify it and send it back to you. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Is there anyway to switch it from LUFs to DB mode?

At the moment (v0.8.12) there is no way to switch which value is displayed in the Peak/LUFS meter. That will likely come in the future.

Me parece lo mejor!! si ya midiese el pico maximo en dBs y te dijera la correlacion estereo seria mas perfecto de lo que es ya, mis enhorabuena un salud0!!


This is the plugin I've been looking for all this time.

I think it would be great if the colors could be customized separately and saved as own theme. so I can change the theme according to the mood of the music genre that I make because color is very influential in finding ideas in my opinion.

Anyway, thx for making this. You're awesome 🔥

Thanks for picking it up! You can absolutely make your own theme! https://minimeters.app/help/theming/

Hey, I love MiniMeters thank you for developing it!

I would love to see a stereo spectroscope like Goodhertz CanOpener. Since the RGB Setting in the Stereometer is hard to read, honestly. You could rotate it sideways and have L up and R down.  Just a suggestion!

Goodhertz CanOpener Studio im Test bei kopfhoerer.de

Minimeters doesn't seem to be working at all for me OS 10.14.6 Mojave. Went through all the different troubleshooting help, and read through all these comments for any potential solutions. Can't pick up any system audio and it isn't popping up in my plugin list in Pro Tools either, and minimeters is in the correct installation path for CLAP, Components, and VST3. Will keep giving it a go on the demo, but this is holding me back from purchasing. 

Hey! Sorry you’re running into issues. Pro Tools doesn’t support VST3 or CLAP. Unless you’re using a wrapper it definitely will not show up. I am looking into building an AAX version for Pro Tools user.

As for picking up system audio: that is only supported on macOS Ventura or newer. Apple only recently added support for that in Ventura: for alternative options see here: https://minimeters.app/help/audio-macos/

Let me know if you still have issues or questions.

Apologies about the OS confusion, that's my fault. Okay good to know, I guess I got a little to excited about this and hoped it would work on my system.

Can it be used with FL Studio ZgameEditor visualizer? I want to use it overlaid with images.

I’m not sure of the capabilities of ZGameEditor. I have not experimented with it yet. But if the demo works in the way you expect then the full version should as well.

Is it possible to float the window on top for m1 mac?

Yes! Click the "Pin To Top" button in the top toolbar.


hey guys I have a question i'm on 8.3 and want to update to 8.12 but when I put my email in it says theres no email with that account... :( help i want to update

(1 edit)

I believe I already reached out to you on Twitter, but if anyone else has the same issue please visit the following link: https://minimeters.app/help/find-updates/

Hi, I encounted a problem recently where I am unable to find the minimeters window. When I open the application it just shows when i hover over it but it is no where to be found on my screen. Is there a way to solve this issue?


Hey! Sorry you're running into this. Likely the window is simply offscreen. This happens when display layouts change. An easy way to fix would be to follow these instructions. This may also work however I have not personally tried it: Move offscreen windows back on screen.

You could also open the settings.json file and adjust the window position there, but the above steps should fix it. I'm looking into a better solution for this as on some systems repositioning the window automatically when it was offscreen would cause a hang so I removed that in a previous version.

Alright got it to work Thanks!

Hey! I recently downloaded the demo and I saw that it said that the demo was limited for only waveform and luf. But mine just says currently set as primary instance. I don't know if its just the demo or if I put it in ableton wrong. Just wanted to make sure before buying but it looks awesome!

Hey! Thanks for trying the demo. It sounds to me like you inserted the plug-in but did not open up the app. More Info.

If you’re on macOS it should be in the Applications folder, and on Windows you can search for it in your start menu. Let me know if that helps. 

wow i feel stupid, thanks so much getting the full one now!

Hello!I believe Minimeters is a very user-friendly and useful tool. However , I have encountered a problem. After reinstalling my computer, it crashes every time I switch audio devices  (the devices used are the same as before reinstalling). I am a Windows user, and even after deleting the Minimeters folder in Appdata, the problem persists. Is there a solution for this issue?

Hey. Sorry you're running into issues. I had one other user report this issue with a particular audio device. I would appreciate if you could reach out either here or at support@minimeters.app and let me know what audio device you are using. I can probably send you a test version once I identify the issue.

Thank you for answering my question.

I am using the Audient's ID 4 product and it's drives are  the two options at the bottom of the screenshot. The computer's driver is Senary Audio.


I am not sure if it is a problem with the audio device. Because today no matter which option I switch to (such as switching to the Minimeters plugin), it will crash directly. Now I can only keep it on the default output.  o(╥﹏╥)o

Yeah I believe it is a bug on my end. I will look into it ASAP!

Thank you for your hard work. Minimeters is truly an excellent tool and we look forward to seeing it improve even further in the future! \(^o^)/~

Hey ray971023! I believe the version I released today (0.8.12) has addressed the issue. Please try it out and let me know!

Hey there! Vision impaired user here. In the future are you potentially looking into readability/font size adjustments? I like using these a lot, but things like the Spectrum just look pretty and aren't entirely functional as the font size is so small. I would also like to be able to hover my mouse in the spectrum to just have a line follow along the top with a frequency box for where my mouse is--A condensed 2.xkHz shortening rather than full base Hz would improve readability too. Also with a large mouse cursor, it obscures the label when you click on any of the modules. Colour fill for the spectrum would also help a little with readability too.

Many thanks, and awesome work!

Hey! This is something I should definitely spend more time considering.

I will be sure to add font size adjustments in a future version. I had also not considered a condensed read out of frequency nor the inability to read the output with a larger cursor. There will also be a lot more options for overall scale and changing how modules are displayed in v1.0. Thank you for the feedback!

Found this a couple days ago thanks to Darby and his song ''Everything'' through TikTok, and... these kinds of softwares are right up my alley!

I love Rainmeter, Wallpaper Engine and all of those softwares mainly for the visualizers, so again this is right up my alley! <3
I immediately downloaded the demo just to see how it worked, then i immediately bought the full version.

I personally would've loved more modules, visualizers, etc though but either way it's still amazing!

Also, one last thing is that i thought i ran into a bug where i couldn't resize the ''Stereometer'' module but that resize ''bar'' or whatever only shows up depending on the size of the softwares window. Hard to explain, but hopefully it's understandable. lol

(1 edit) (+1)

At the moment of writing (v0.8.11) I am working on v1.0 which will likely have a better user experience for the Stereometer. But currently resizing it is only enabled past a certain size as you said as it will simply clip off the edges losing you some information. The Stereometer has a fixed aspect ratio of either 2:1 or 1:1 depending on the mode. 

I am curious what other modules you're looking for in here?

Yeah, alright then i completely understood why you chose to do what you did with the Stereometer.

I honestly don't really know what other modules i'm looking for, but maybe like the old Windows Media Player visualizers with like ''trippy'' visuals moving to the sounds, music, etc?
All of the current modules are still really amazing and satisfying though, so i've got zero complaints!

portable versions? i'd love to use it at college but i dont have admin rights to install there lol

Hey! Unfortunately, I am not distributing a portable version at the moment. You are welcome to extract the installer yourself and use it that way, but your milage may vary. While I have not tried them myself I expect any of the many "Innosetup extractors" that show up when I google it should likely work.

Please make an unclickable and variable opacity option.

This way you can have it on the background over any window.

Hi, I am currently running Mojave on my mac and it says its compatible however, I am not getting any signal to minimeters in my DAW. Is it still compatible with Mojave or is there something I am missing? Thanks 

Hey! Sorry you're running into issues. It should be fully compatible with Mojave. Are you using the MiniMetersServer Plug-In in your DAW to send audio into MiniMeters? Or another audio routing means?

Let me know if this page helps you as well. https://minimeters.app/help/audio-macos/

I love this app, but I've been having some serious issues when switching it from my 1080p monitor to my 4k monitor.
when it crosses from one screen to another it freezes my entire pc and crashes the app. is this a known issue?

Hey. Sorry you're running into this. Unfortunately, you're not alone. I am actively looking to fix this issue. However there may be a workaround that will fix this for you.

Please open your settings file and add the following line somewhere in the "window" section.

"display_scaling_enabled": false,

 If you need more help please reach out on the Discord. I will likely have this fixed in the next update.

Love the app! Is there a way to record the audio/visuals from it besides doing a screen capture on a Mac? Want to save it using the internal audio from the computer

Hey! You can use a number of ways to get audio into MiniMeters. Here is the help page for audio routing: Audio Routing: macOS

Gotcha! I'm already able to get audio into MiniMeters, I meant more for recording the minimeters screen and audio to save into a separate video to post for example

Ahh sorry I misunderstood what you were asking. At the moment there is not an internal way to video record MiniMeters. I would like to get that added in the future. 

What I personally do is use the native screen capture on macOS with CMD-Shift-5 and then just add the audio later in an editor. But OBS captures desktop audio on macOS if you're using macOS Ventura or later which might be the most straightforward option.

In order to use the standalone app on a Mac, it asks to "allow the application to record the content on your screen and audio, even while using other application"

Where do these recordings get saved? and do we need to delete these to avoid unnecessary memory clutter?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Hey! Thanks for reaching out. It's not "Recording" per se, but it is instead just using the new Screen Recording API to get the computer's audio in realtime. It will only use a small amount of memory and only while MiniMeters is running.

For the record I am not even setting up the video side of the recording just grabbing the audio. More info here

Is this new version laggy for anyone else? running macos 10.15.7

Hey herryfreer, 

I had a Mac user with AMD Graphics report an issue with the latest version. Particularly lag related to using pop out windows.  Does that line up with your experience? If so, I’m looking into a fix. 

If not, could you open MiniMeters, click CMD-D, and send a screenshot of the window that pops up? Thanks.

Yo yeah I'm having the same issue with the pop-out windows being laggy. But I don't have AMD Graphics I think? Not sure though I have Intel Iris Plus Graphics 1536MB if thats what you mean

Alright thanks for the reply. Sorry you're running into this. If you could open MiniMeters, click CMD-D and get me a screenshot of the that screen it would help a a lot. I'm trying to figure out a way to replicate the issue here since none of my Macs are exhibiting this  behavior.

Also the 'Legacy Versions.zip' includes older versions that you can use in the meantime!

great tool


I've downloaded the Mac demo but when I open it in Logic, it says "currently set as primary instance".  What does that mean?

Hey! You need to open the MiniMeters.app in your  Applications folder. MiniMeters is standalone but connects to the plugin to route the audio. More Info here: https://minimeters.app/help/minimetersserver-setup/


I purchased the plugin and download everything to Mac for use with Ableton. Unfortunately when I go to use the plugin (MiniMetersServer) It simply says "currently sending audio to MiniMeters" But Nothing is being displayed. 

I tried to go onto Discord for help solving this issue but when clicking on the link it says "the invite is no longer available".

I do not have twitter either.

I would appreciate help in solving this issue.

Thank you,

Hey, sorry you're running into the issue. I just tried the discord link and it appears to still be working, but no worries.

I have had a couple macOS users run into this issue with the plugin. I am working on an update that will likely address the issues however you can test if it's working by opening the plugin in Ableton, opening your web browser, and navigating to http://localhost:8422/data. If it doesn't load any information then likely something is blocking the connection.

Hey this should be fixed as of 0.8.6. Please let me know if you have any issues with the new version.

can I install this on my 2 computers or there is a single license only?

You can install this on as many of your computers as you'd like.

another question, will the future updates cost or by buying it once you have a life-time update?


At the time of writing this message MiniMeters is still in "public beta" so it's not even at 1.0 yet (0.8.5). You will receive updates from now through 1.x.x. I do not have plans for a v2.0 at the moment so likely you will continue to receive updates indefinitely.
