VU Meter is a pretty simple app, including a utility that helps count the volume units being broadcasted. The features are little, of course, but that doesn't mean the program's use limits itself only to its primary goal. VU Meter was mainly developed for version 7/Vista and newer versions of Windows, so that's its main operating system. The program also has forums dedicated to improving it, so it may come in handy when dealing with any sort of problem or anything on that matter. The app supports encoding to WAV, FLAC, and other mainstream audio formats.

The main benefit is, without a doubt, a clean and easy-to-navigate interface, not taking any time from you or creating any headaches. It is also customizable to your liking, turning the design part of this software choice into a convenient tool. Options are also configurable, improving this app's adjustability level greatly. The program is also capable of mimicking old stereo volume meters, adding up to the possibilities count.


VU Meter is a standalone VU meter focusing on simplicity and effectiveness, being highly accurate and easy to use
  • Simple, yet capable interface helping with better app understanding and its usage and long-term flexibility 
  • Multitasking is also done easily by allowing you to use other VU counting programs while the software is running
  • Adjustable response time (the time it takes the needle to make a complete swing) which also means higher accuracy while using the program
  • Capable of setting the maximum amount of the VU being metered. It comes in clutch for anyone working on audio files with lower-value recordings, and some other situations
  • The meter is set on two sides, counting the right and left audio percentages, which also adds additional data sources for easier post-editing and more

There are, expectedly, almost no updates coming out, plus a low amount of configuration options. One more disadvantage is no options for 5.1 channel versions, which are pretty common nowadays, and it could make a difference for some people. Overall, VU Meter is a solid software choice for its trying-to-be, even with its relatively outdated approach, still being able to do its purpose just fine.
