There are two major factors that determine the performance of meters in SONAR. One is audio latency which you can adjust, within the limits of your audio hardware drivers, in Edit > Preferences > Audio - Driver Settings . The second is the settings in Edit > Preferences > Customization - Audio Meters.SONAR has configurable meter ballistics that allow you to adjust the rise and fall times of both the RMS and Peak Meters. Out of the box, SONAR ships with industry-standard settings that mimic meter ballistics for common hardware consoles.To adjust the meter performance, go to Edit > Preferences > Customization - Audio Meters and follow these guidelines:
Peak Hold – Decay Rate = 50 msec
Peak Hold – Hold Time = 750 msec
