You'll want to set your metering mode to VU (*METERS on the MAST page, choose 7 VU). Calibration is 0VU = -18dBFS.

You can adjust the rate of animation (*GUI RATE on the MAST page) to taste. I'm liking between 18ms and 30ms personally.

Enjoy!

On the MAST page, the *GUI RATE.

Which reminds me (I'll add this to the OP):

Also on the MAST page set your *METERS mode to 7 VU.

The needles don't respond naturally, If I use a kick drum over 1 bar say, The meter reading is different for most hits and 'slow' to react.

Why is this? Do I have wrong settings?

Nice looking skins though,

Unlike peak meters, VU meters don't jump much with signals that are just very fast transients, it's a fairly slow meter. This is both a limitation and feature of the VU spec.

Ok, But shouldn't it read exactly the same each time as its just a kick drum copied for 4 beats?

If the average (over the VU time spec) is identical for each hit, then yes. But that is rarely going to happen unless you used one drum sample over and over without variation.

Also, is your meter mode set for 7 VU? If it were set for peak it could get weird results.
