High Tech Old School

Whenever I use Audio Hijack Pro (of which I am a proud paid customer and give my highest recommendation), I always use the VU Meter plugin. Maybe this is my radio background showing in the romanticization of old affordances, but watching that needle bounce to the right and into the red is infinitely more satisfying than any sort of LED or progress bar style meter of the same information. Sometimes an analog view just hits you right there, you know?

    Preach on, brother Dave. It just wouldn’t be the same doing a podcast without it. 🙂

    Dude-you put the geek bait on the geek hook. I have that software and haven’t used that feature. I will now. Just like that Velvet Underground cover.
