VU Meter: Just what it says on the tin

2 July 2012Entry by

Interested in how loud your environment is, but getting an actual VU meter seems a bit too much for you? Fret not, as your N900 can replace it with this nifty app.

vumeter is just what it is: a VU meter and it has many interesting features to boot. It can measure the volume in dB or linear, has a few graph output modes, can capture audio from your N900, from the microphone (i.e. from your environment) or from the bluetooth. Through the settings you can give it various tweaks and even log theĀ measurementsĀ into a file, which could be quite useful if you’re planing to use that data in a project or whatever else. Of course you can also find the averages and the highest values as well.

You never know when something like this could be useful! Go fetch vumeter from extras:

sudo gainroot

apt-get install vumeter
