Au contraire, Pierre!
When I was mixing a session Sunday, I was too lazy to set up the
Firewire mixer I use as my primary audio interface and instead used my
Delta 1010. When I do that, I set up an extra monitoring bus so that
I have a fader to adjust my volume without affecting the master level.
In doing so, I inadvertently set up a feedback loop and saw the master
meter peak and the feedback indicator flash. I've done this before in
A2 to rather unpleasant results! I don't recall ever having a plugin
mess up that badly, but I use a fairly limited set of them.
Thank Paul that he disables the audio in such a case. I could have
blown my monitors and hurt my ears otherwise. I really do not want this
default behavior to change!!
