The Advanced edition rolls out with:

  • Loudness – Comprehensive loudness meters ensuring that all your work will comply with the new(ish) international loudness standards
  • EQ Match – The same thinking as Ambience Match, but with EQ! Quickly learn the EQ of one clip and apply it to another clip
