I made this rack for setting levels similar to the DAW track approach to initial level setting and for calibrating my monitors in the studio. The active ingredient is a cool little free simple Pink Noise Generator VST from CredlandAudio software called Pink. It didn’t have any calibrated settings and the knob labels didn’t jive so I put it in a rack, created the states and calibrated the different states using a good RMS meter. It has a few familiar Cantabile settings like -7 db, -14 db and -18 db which represent the New, Classic and Center meters available in Cantabile. It can also be used to calibrate your monitors for Bob Katz style K-metering.
Just download the plug from CredlandAudio using the link above and install it in your VST folder, and the rack will load it up. When you first run it you need to open the rack and the plugin to register it. The rack has the states set to control the plugin Gain for the different levels. It should translate across different setups.
