Developer comments

Idea for this plugin came from similar plugin for winamp called 'Homeboy analog VU meter', and ideas how to write plugin to xmms from MSA plugin.

At first I only wanted to make something, that would look like the real thing, but as time passed, I have tried to make it also behave like it actually did something useful.

So what you are actually seeing is dBFS value for sound, which means RMS value of soundlevel compared to reference ((2^16-1)/2). Values range from 0 dBFS (highest) to -91 dBFS (lowest).

If you like this plugin, then please send me feedback, comments, patches, etc. Also what I need is artwork or skins, so mail me if you would like to help with that.
