Audio Toolbox
CLARITY M STEREO provides a veritable toolbox of meter types to help you make the right mix and mastering decisions for truly professional recordings.

Vector Scope
By tracing the left and right audio waveforms into a shape-like cloud, the high precision vectorscope in CLARITY M STEREO will help you identify important stereo balance and phase issues in your mix.

RTA
Checking the spatial balance of your mix is paramount to ensure your mix has a well-balanced stereo image and optimum stereo width. With the innovative Balance-O-Meter in your arsenal, you get instant access to your all-important Left to Right balance at-a-glance.

Balance-O-Meter
Checking the spatial balance of your mix is paramount to ensure your mix has a well-balanced stereo image and optimum stereo width. With the innovative Balance-O-Meter in your arsenal, you get instant access to your all-important Left to Right balance at-a-glance.

True-Peak
Based on TC Electronics' highly acclaimed True-Peak Technology, the CLARITY M STEREO is your guard against otherwise unpredictable clipping.

Loudness Radar
The Loudness Radar is essential when it comes to monitoring the loudness of your mix. With the loudness history overview on the scope, the radar helps get the levels just right, while the momentary loudness in the outer ring keeps an eye on your instant loudness level.

Loudness Measures
Loudness statistics not only keep you compliant with loudness standards, but they also provide crucial information on other important aspects of your mix, such as micro dynamics and macro dynamics.

Downmix Deviation
The Deviation meter is a fundamental tool to ensure your mix sounds great whether played back in stereo or mono. This downmix compatibility meter is based on TC Electronics Loudness Technology and provides the best means for determining the status of your mix fold down.

Correlation
For stereo mixing, the correlation meter helps identify phasing issues and other anomalies that are easy to miss when relying solely on your ears.

Merge Hardware with Plug-Ins
While CLARITY M STEREO is an exceptional hardware stand-alone desktop meter, it also interacts seamlessly with your DAW workflow via plug-in metering - which is available for Pro Tools, Apple Logic Pro, Nuendo, and all other major VST*, AU* or AAX* compatible DAWs. CLARITY M STEREO is quite simply the ideal integration of two worlds.

CLARITY M STEREO provides a wealth of digital connectivity. Unbalanced AES3 (coaxial) and S/PDIF are available right out of the box, and optional adapters enable you to connect standard AES/EBU with ease. Additionally, you can use the TOSLink* port for optical input and the USB connection to work seamlessly with your favourite DAW CLARITY M STEREO includes an integrated stand, making it perfect for any desktop. A pair of mounting holes provides compatibility with RAM-Mounts, allowing convenient attachment to a wall or ceiling. Other options include a suction cup for mounting on hard surfaces and a tough-claw mount for mic stand applications, all of which are available separately.
