...wich is a good reason for having an arbitrary configurable level for
triggering the clip indicator (during recording) - working around
hardware limitations (or features), warning if a preferred peak level
is exceeded, etc...
As allready discussed on IRC it might be useful to have different
settings for different places in the signal chain - lower/arbitrary
level for metering input signals ("in" meter point), simple 0 dBFS
detection on channels and buses when mixing (pre/post meter point),
oversampled peak meter on the master for capturing inter-sample peaks
and so on.
