Meet the Module: Meter

Audio Weaver® from DSP Concepts is a low-code, hardware-independent audio platform that streamlines the development of audio features for a wide range of products.

By utilizing a PC-based host application for product design, paired with an audio processing engine embedded in the target hardware, Audio Weaver reduces the risk and complexity of each stage of the development workflow, from prototype to production. With Audio Weaver, developers can tune and debug before deploying the layouts they have created.

Audio Weaver contains over 550 signal processing blocks, referred to as modules. Module capabilities range from simple filtering to data type conversion, advanced audio mixing and distribution, all the way to machine learning and specialized, third-party IP. Audio Weaver’s drag-and-drop environment allows developers to build and customize sophisticated audio signal chains. Modules can be added, deleted, and rearranged in just a few clicks, much like circuit design.

To demonstrate, let’s walk through one of the many available modules: Meter.

Audio Weaver Meter Module

Meter is a sink display module for peak and RMS level monitoring. Featuring ten different operating modes, the Meter module can process up to N number of audio channels, displaying a discrete audio level meter with instantaneous readout and clip indication for each channel in real time.

A Meter module can be inserted at any point in the audio signal chain, becoming a useful visual tool for testing and debugging. With its wide range of operating modes and customizable ADSR settings, Meter can be tuned to precisely monitor incoming audio.

Meter is just one of the hundreds of modules available in Audio Weaver. In addition to standard modules such as Meter, Audio Weaver also features more complex and powerful modules that accelerate the audio development of high-performance audio features such as immersive 3D audio rendering, multi-channel acoustic echo cancellation, and more.
