Features you would like to see in VirtualDJ
Topic: More accurate VU meters
The VU Meters should be numbered to know where the zero dB is and see the headroom and clip in different colors, for example green, yellow and red.

and:
The meter should be configurable. At many controllers its usual: 1 LED = 3dB

For me, I've added some markes into the skin. And ive changed the colours at the image file of the skin.
But, the scale seems to be hard coded, i cannot change it. It seems to be between 0db and -24dB. -72dB would be fine.

there is a possibility to change colors :
vu_meters are actually hardcoded in bitmap linear visuals
they can be vectorized using leds and vumeter visual
by the way the led will be set fully instead of partially

<define class="vumeter" type="vumeter" orientation="vertical" direction="up" width="11" height="201" granularity="41">
<led x="+0" y="+5*40+2" width="11" height="5"><off color="vumeterdarker" border="black" border_size="1" radius="1"/><on color="deckcolor" border="black" border_size="1" radius="1"/></led>
<led x="+0" y="+5*39+2" width="11" height="5"><off color="vumeterdarker" border="black" border_size="1" radius="1"/><on color="deckcolor" border="black" border_size="1" radius="1"/></led>
...
<led x="+0" y="+5*01+2" width="11" height="5"><off color="vumeterlighter" border="black" border_size="1" radius="1"/><on color="vumeterhigh" border="black" border_size="1" radius="1"/></led>
<led x="+0" y="+5*00+2" width="11" height="5"><off color="vumeterlighter" border="black" border_size="1" radius="1"/><on color="vumeterhigh" border="black" border_size="1" radius="1"/></led>
</define>

...
<visual class="vumeter" deck="left" source="get_vu_meter_left" x="+0" y="+0"/>
...

every led on and off can have its owv color

Great Job. That's what I'm talking about.

TKS, I'll try...

On my DDJ-RX are the VU meters, auto gain is turned on, pointless as just 1 LED is doing something.
Would love to have them working correct to a) validate the aktual gain and b) having the optical help on which channel is something running on the controller itself
