This is a rolling precise voltage meter, designed to help find rogue voltages that maybe appearing in a signal chain, just it plug it in and it starts reading.

The latest reading is at the top and it shows last 7 results (8 results in total).

The Option button opens up the filter options which you can filter by,

  • Rounding, you can round the results up so very small changes can be grouped together.
  • Diff, This can be set to Greater or Less than a value you specify, then the incoming value is calculated with the last value to work out if to display it or not. e.g. This meter is not design to have fast metering through like an LFO, however if you have say a triangle or sine you can set the difference to be large or small enough not to detect the changes in the LFO until a spike or another value that pushes that LFO into a range you are looking for.
  • First 8, once it has received 8 results it pauses the input.
  • Unique, only unique voltages are displayed, if a voltage is already showing then it's moved to the top, keeping the list unique.

Other Buttons

  • Closest Notes, display the closest note to the voltage.
  • Time, Display time in samples on the left and the voltage on the right. Tracks how long a voltage is held for.
  • Unlimited, try and display as much as possible.
  • Limited, the display is limited to 16 characters (formatting looks nice)
  • Reset, Trigger (or Gate) in will reset all the meters to 0 and will enable "In" if off.
  • In, default is on, when off it blocks the incoming signal.

Darkmode: double click the Bear but not too hard it might make him grumpy..

Personal reason behind device: I use this a lot in my dev work as I need to make sure that precise values are what I think they are.

Build #20/21, Added Time option.

Build #19, Bug fix, a RESET did not always reset from a newly loaded patch until either it had rolled around the data or the display type was changed.

Build #18 Added Closest Notes.

Build #17 Public Release
