■Creator's comment

"My FORENO VU meters are the best visual representation of How much dynamics and energy i have in each scene change in my mixes, When you turn them on the LED’s have the most beautiful shade of yellow and are incredibly smooth. It is also so much easier to have all my mixes at the same volume and they are absolutely beautiful."
