Level Magic is a comprehensive loudness management processor that is based on a powerful algorithm. Developed and enhanced over the years with Jünger Audio’s experience, it meets the needs of the broadcasting and media industries by analyzing with great precision the incoming audio feed thanks to its dedicated algorithm.
This joint venture between Flux and Junger capitalizes on the dynamic range processor principles developed by Jünger Audio. They enable level managing devices like compressors, AGC and limiters to have exceptionally high audio quality (without coloration, pumping, breathing, distortion or modulation effects).
The Level Magic processor is compliant with all current worldwide loudness standards. The algorithm is highly adaptive to the structure of the incoming audio and requires only a small number of parameters to be set by the user. The result is audio compliant with the selected standard but free of any unwanted artefacts such as pumping, breathing or distortion.
Based on the underlying ITU-R BS.1770(-1/2/3) principle, Level Magic provides compatibility with EBU R128, ATSC A/85, ARIB TR-B32, FREE TV OP-59 and Portaria 354.
Level Magic uses a proprietary multi-loop approach comprising of three essential elements in order to measure, and if necessary correct, audio that doesn’t fit your specific needs.
The plug-in combines a controller that slows changing levels over time and a fast acting transient processor that catches inaudible high frequency overshoots. A brickwall filter provides effective True Peak limiting using a 2ms look-ahead to capture any intersample peaks. The final signal is a combination of all three elements.
