    Of course this is not a big problem if you check the settings so that it shows only on the PC monitor and not on the external monitor.

    It's kind of hard to do extra work for free... No matter how it's displayed, it still takes instruction cycles to display the information.

    For the audio mixer, the software would need to be able to predict the future in order to use the render-ahead buffer and change audio levels corresponding to what you hear. Well, it might work if the user's psychic too...

    End result is: If your system is slightly faster than enough to play back in real-time without using the buffer, then you wouldn't think that the audio mixer shows a "performance hit" because that's not what's really happening.

    the graduation markers are too hard to see and the VU meter should be upright like in Speed Razor, like in all my Betacam machines, like in Soundforge etc

    Go to SETTINGS>APPLICATION SETTINGS>CUSTOMIZE>OVERLAY and on the right side under VIEW you can position it anywhere you like as well as make it small, medium, or large size.

    Timecode & Audio Meter

    When you select VU mode in the audio mixer, the audio meter in ‘status’ also displays it in VU units.


    But I have to give you the other points: can’t move it, can’t size it like in Speed Razor

    How can I move the position of the Timecode on screen display to a lower part of the screen?

    Thanks,
    Ted

    There is a simple answer to this problem - if you use an RME soundcard (brilliant kit anyway, highly recommended). It comes with a utility called DIGICheck which allows you to have a VU/Peak meter permanently running. In fact you can also simultaneously have a spectrum analyzer, phase scope and goodness knows what else, all of which are highly customizable in terms of scaling, dynamics, colour and on-screen position. The beauty is that all the display data is calcluated in RME's on-board DSP so there is virtually no CPU overhead, however complicated you want to get. You can literally run it alongside Edius without any worries:

    In this case I have a VU/peak and loudness meter running on the extreme right hand side.

    Slightly off topic - why does no-one offer an option for PPM meter scaling? It just happens to be the ONLY accepted broadcast standard in Europe (and I suspect Australia too).

    I just received SF9 and the VU meters are excellent, just like the SR ones

    I haven't seen the audio mixer cause much of a hit (unless you use an older system). The buffer just seems to not go all the way when it's open, and the reason for that has been explained a few times already.

    Here's a sample:

    hmmm, when I have my mixer open, none of my multi PIP or Xplode play in realtime, playback stops, the buffer is on 0 before it hits the transition and effects

    I’m not sure what you are referring to, but EDIUS already has both Peak and VU meters.
