This is not a full release but one meant for testing. I’d like to ask everyone interested in their opinion on a change we are planning to make on the peak-meters of our devices.
We have found that the way they are used now often confuses new users and as a result many users don’t play with the optimal gain settings and headroom.
We have decided to tweak things a bit and also make the transitions between the colors smooth instead of static, with this the LED’s will also give a better indication of where in the range the signal is instead if in one of the 3 options there are now (green, yellow and red).
with these tweaks the following ranges are applied:
-inf dB to -40 dB -> LED’s off
-40 dB to -6 dB -> green fade in
-6 dB to -1 dB -> green fully on, fade in of yellow
-1 dB to 0 dB -> red
When the value reaches anything above 0dB (digital clipping) the LED’s will blink red just as they did before, to give a clear indication that the audio is being distorted.
Since the peak-meter LED’s are such a fundamental part of our product, we would love to hear you guy’s opinion before we change anything here!

The upgrade procedure is explained at the top of our releases page, here:
These releases are an adaptation of the 1.8.3 firmware with the only difference being the peak-meters.
