    Load a track of some sort into Reaper

    Select it

    Then click on the 'Analyze selected tracks' button

    The biggest issue with the SWS loudness is that it won't allow you to analyze a master track. If you want to look at your final file statistics, you must render the file, then load that track into Reaper, select and analyze.

    Its usually not a major problem, since rendering in Reaper is usually pretty quick for moderately sized projects.

    I would have sworn I had done that earlier. I probably did, in a different order

    Thanks!

    I notice my drums (MIDI) didn't show up. Do I need to convert them to an audio wave. Should I convert, even..?

    Yes. Midi data has no level to measure
