HOFA 4U+ ProjectTime V3

ProjectTime V3 has all the features you need to monitor the time you spend working on your DAW projects.
After you have loaded ProjectTime into any plugin slot of your DAW, you can start tracking the time. The measured time is saved when you close the project and can be continued when you open it again.

The main innovation is the ability to start the timer automatically, depending on whether playback is running in the DAW or whether an audio signal is detected. In addition, you can now conveniently work with several sessions and edit them later.

As with all plugins from the 4U+ series, you can choose: there is a freeware version that can be used without any costs and a full version with a significantly extended feature set.
