Re: Mixer Behavior

I've been wondering if we could discuss the way the sliders in Beast's
mixer work.  I'd like to see the slider in the mixer do both
amplification and limiting.  In a real mixing board, the sliders
actually don't amplify anything, they only attenuate the audio that
passes through them.
What's everyone's opinion on this?

as for limiting, that is actually a fairly complicated mechanism to
implement, not just muting the signal to 0 if the mixer sliders
indicate an amplification of -96dB, see:

we do have two plugins (in the upcoming 0.6.5 that is) which come
close, ArtsCompressor and StandardSaturator.
a pure limiter has yet to be implemented though.

deploying plugins in the mixer is currently in the works. the plan is
to support adding effects/filters to mixer busses in the "reserved for
effects" slot. this would ultimately be the place to hook up limiters,
compressors, saturators, echos, flangers etc.
