Metering & Mixing

PlayerSpecz metering panel on the right show you the levels of all the input channels present while also giving you the ability to mix them to any of your outputs. You can resize this panel to your liking by dragging the bar that separates it from the main panel.


Here you can see the channel metering panel in PlayerSpecz.

The channel names can be found on top. If channel names are stored in the metadata, these will shown here, otherwise the channel description is shown (left, right, etc..).

On the bottom the peak hold value is shown. This is also represented as a line in the meter itself. Double clicking will reset the peak hold value.

PlayerSpecz allows you to select the rate at which the meters decay to either slow or fast.

While the meter panel is being resized by dragging the bar that separates it from the main panel, the meters will try to adapt and show more or less information. This way they can be minimized to a single line, giving you feedback on your levels, but taking up a minimal amount of space.


PlayerSpecz features a complete routing matrix, which means that you can mix any input channel to any number of output channels, at any level. This makes it possible to downmix your multi-channel material or quickly solo a channel in your field recording. The mixer also features master faders to control a specific input or output channel. There is also a total master fader that you can use to set the monitoring level, or to mute the output swiftly. These controls are also mirrored in the toolbar.

This fader determines how much of the input channel on the left will go the output channel on top.
Double clicking will let you manually enter a value. Ctrl-click sets it to the default value. If you need finer control shift-drag decreases the sensitivity.

The input master fader controls all faders to the right of it and behaves much the same as the fader described in 1.

The output master fader controls all faders below it and behaves much the same as the fader described in 1.
Essentially this acts as an output fader so you can set the speaker level or quickly solo it.

The total master fader controls all faders and behaves much the same as the fader described in 1.
This could be considered as your monitoring level and muting this will mute all audio.
