Analog VU Meters

Hey there - I'd like to add a vu meter to my current set up but I don't have any room for a 19" LED type. Has anyone seen a square/rectangular shaped analog unit (with the classic needle and db scale) - with RCA or XLR inputs to connect directly to the outputs of my Urei 1620 LE? I've never seen one in anyone's set up so I thought it might be unique to have one just to the side of my Urei & ISO-X. I really need a vu meter when recording mixes as it does my head in having to watch the waveforms on the laptop - not very "rock 'n' roll" if you know what I mean ..!

Peace,

CJ Branda.

I was looking for the same thing recently only things i came across were made but Coleman and cost hundreds. I find the level meter on Soundforge useful for my mixes.

Cheers Lee - the MB2 seems sweet but no idea of cost. That's kinda what I'm looking for but without a reasonable price range I'm still stuck with the prospect of a 19" LED unit. Doh springs to mind ..!

After a quick Google search I found the MB2 is $385 from Mercenary: http://www.mercenary.com/colaudmb2ste.html

I was thinking something more along these lines:

Can I attach RCA leads from a master out to these by cutting off the RCA plugs and connect with the bare wire to the terminals? Or is there more trickery involved? Just an idea but I'm no technician !

No, you can't. This is what you will need to connect to your meters. And then connect to your desired metered audio signal:
