You can pick a representative sample while it tries to establish stuff and then bounce and measure to see if it's Ok, or set it on "Learn" and have it run the entire time the track(s) play, if the piece is short enough and you have the time. That gives you a good level for YT video, too.

I use the tonal balance too if you have that. Just a sanity check if you've spent too many hours with the headphones on...

Exactly. Its pretty neat. Normally Id mix it, bounce it, and set up a mastering session with a Pultec plugin and something like Fabfilter Pro-L to get it to -14 Lufs but all I had on my laptop was the new Izotope, so I used this as a chance to take it for a spin. Very slick!
