L-Normalizer – Pro Tools recommended workflow




a. Select the audio region and then load the plug-in from the Audio Suite top menu. Sometimes the plug-in will display values from previews sessions, simply double-click the Analyze-Render slider under L-Normalizer for a complete reset.

b. With the slider set on Analyze, click the Render button from the lower right corner. After rendering, a detailed report will be displayed under the Source label with values for Program Loudness, Maximum Short Therm Loudness, Maximum Momentary Loudness, Loudness Range and Maximum True Peak.

c. A typical EBU compliant file will need to have a program loudness of -23 LUFS, with a max true peak of -1 dBTP. Now you can set the target values for normalization and then click on the Analyze-Render slider. Be advised: after switching to render mode the target values will be locked. If you want to return to analyze mode, the source values will be reset and a new analysis will be needed.

d. Once you click on the Render button, the plug-in will normalize the file and do a final analysis. You can check the values under the Source label for the new loudness measurements.

! Be advised: if heavy true peak limiting occurs the program loudness will not be 100% accurate.

For 5.1 file formats you need to make sure that the clip is on a 5.1 track and not split into multi mono channels.
