VAST True Peak Detector
Scan your VAST Video to check if audio has high peak levels (like explosions).
What is it?
The true peak refers to the maximum loudness peak throughout the video. A common threshold is < -1 dB.
Why is it important?
Imagine a video of nature: a river with some butterflies — just some soft meditation sounds. Then there's an explosion. LUFS levels are determined by averaging the video's loudness over time. It may have been in an acceptable range in this example. The true peak however detects the explosion, as it was the loudest part of the video.
