I know one way to do audio meters which requires the use of a player object
and Trevor DeVore's Enhanced QuickTime external. If I remember correctly it
may only provide 100 units of granularity but measures left and right
channels separately. If you think this would work for you, I can try to put
a sample together, but otherwise, you may need to look for someone to build
