Leveling Axe-Fx II Presets Using Pink Noise and Loudness Meter

Leveling Axe-Fx II Presets Using Pink Noise and Loudness Meter

Nothing can truly replace leveling presets live, with the band, using your ears. But if you need to get things close, and you can't open it up to full volume to test levels using a Db meter, this approach works pretty well.

Software Required

You'll need a pink noise generator and a loudness meter application. I'm on OS X and I use Noisy for pink noise generation and Orban Loudness Meter for measuring. Both will work using the Axe-Fx II's USB in and out on OS X 10.9.x. They also both happen to be free which is nice.

#!/usr/bin/env ruby
# Runs rubocop on just the modified and new files in a repoistory. Handy for
# checking your compliance before you commit. It only runs against files that
# end in .rb. Maybe it should do more than that?
# Easy to run. In a dirty working directory:

Like Menlo but it has a dotted zero a slightly nicer kerning and spacing. Menlo refined if you like.
