RTW GETS IN THE GROOVE WITH MASTERING ENGINEER MAURICIO GARGEL
Company's brand new, compact MM3 MusicMeter provides unrivaled loudness metering and monitoring
When Mauricio Gargel, owner and chief engineer at Mauricio Gargel Audio Mastering, is working on music in a variety of formats, he relies on RTW's MM3 MusicMeter to ensure that the final file delivers consistent sound. Gargel has been using RTW meters throughout his career, as they are installed in the studios he has previously worked.
"I must admit that I am not a meter guy, but RTW's MM3 MusicMeter changed that for me," says Gargel. "Typically, I become distracted from the music I am working on because I stare at the meters too much. The small footprint of the MM3 occupies minimal space on my desk, which allows me to focus on the music. RTW has always been a consistent brand and the MM3 provides my studio with the reliable loudness metering that I have come to trust with the RTW name."
Gargel has worked on projects with many artists around the world, including Samuel Rosa, Lô Borges, Arnaldo Antunes and Ricardo Herz. For all his jobs, Gargel has the MM3 front and center. "The loudness chart and USB features are excellent on the MM3. I can produce stereo and surround metering directly from the DAW, further simplifying the workflow in my studio. Since I master music in a variety of format releases, including stereo (CD, internet, hi-res and vinyl), surround (DVD) and 3D (VR/AR), I needed one loudness meter that could handle all different formats. The MM3 is the perfect device for the job..
