Level monitoring live and for later
Designed specifically for level monitoring at live events, NTi Audio’s XL2 sound level meter and analyser is a handheld unit designed to start measuring automatically as soon as it is switched on. While recording the measurement data, it simultaneously records the audio signal as a WAV file, allowing users to analyse it again at a later stage.
The XL2 is setup to continuously monitor low-frequency band levels at 63Hz and 125Hz and is able to measure the average LCeq in intervals varying from 5s to 60 minutes. Stored within the measurement profile are the k1 and k2 correction values, allowing engineers to determine the level at the loudest point inside a venue and to select a pre-defined profile to be ready to monitor within a matter of seconds.
NTi’s newly available Limit Light display is a level monitoring visualisation tool powered by the same mains adapter as the XL2 and its limit levels are set using the sound level meter and stored in a profile for repeat use. It was developed to provide engineers with a solution at venues where a mixing console may be positioned at a distance from the measuring device. The XL2 can therefore be located in the most suitable part of a venue and the Limit Light mounted on the mixing console via an XLR cable. Limit Light features a rotary dial that dims the LED lights according to the background brightness and to not stand out at dimly lit concerts or shows.
