A decibel (dB) meter is a device that records and measures the intensity of soundwaves. While dB meters are typically handheld or standalone devices, you can use your computer as a dB meter using dB meter freeware, such as the Digital Level Meter, Waveseeker, or Decibel Meter programs. These programs will enable you to treat your computer as a fully-functional dB meter in no time.
