An Audio Level Indicator (VU meter) or a volume unit meter, are electronic devices that display the intensity of any Input audio signal, usually in musical pieces of equipment (Drum sets, mic, electric guitars, amps, speakers, etc.). More specifically, it helps to visualize analog signals. So, In this project, we are going to design a simple Audio Level Indicator (VU meter) using the LM3914N dot/bar display driver IC
