jack_meter(1) Console based Digital Peak Meter for JACK


jack_meter [ -f freqency ] [ -r ref-level ] [ -w width ] [-n ] [ <port>, ... ]
jack_meter -h


jack_meter is a basic console based DPM (Digital Peak Meter). I wrote it for quickly checking remote signal levels, without having to run X11 to use a pretty graphical meter such as meterbridge.

The port parameter is optional - when missing then you have to connect up the meter to an input port manually. If more than one port is specified then the inputs are mixed.


-f freqency

How many times per second to refresh the meter. Default is 8.
-r ref-level

The reference signal level for 0dB on the meter.
-w width

The width of the meter (number of characters). The default is 79, one less than the typical terminal width. -n
Outputs meter level as a number in decibels instead of a bar graph display.
