Recording Level Meter Circuit

The circuit shows a two—stage voltage amplifier driving a recording level meter. The AC signal input is amplified, rectified, and the resultant DC voltage shown on the meter. The circuit can be used with a tape recorder or audio mixer and should be fed from a point early in the pre-amp. Current consumption in a no-signal state is 2.8mA. The 12K preset gives a variation in sensitivity. The Recording Level Meter Circuit can be any general purpose type.
