This is a very useful feature. Very often guitarists have problems because they can’t track overloading or insufficient amplification inside the chains. This is what it should look like:
Horizontal meters above blocks have a slight drawback, they are difficult to estimate the relative change in loudness between blocks. All the same, it is better to have vertical meters, they show well how the volume changes from block to block:
I also think that the meters should not always be visible, since they have some computational load, but the clipping indicators in the form of red dots should always be displayed, regardless of whether the monitoring mode is enabled or not.
- I think the best place to activate the monitoring mode is the button on the block editing panel. This is handy when creating and editing chains, also in case of detecting clipping using the dot indicator, you will need to open this panel.
- the clipping indicators should reset when monitor mode is turned off.
- It is important to add a reset button at the top of the screen, because even with the correct setting of the levels, occasionally there are signal bursts that can be neglected, but they light up the indicators and opening the edit panel to reset will be somewhat tedious
