Re: [Sc-devel] Server windows (and Volume sliders)

If others feel this way, this actually sounds good to me. It makes sense that there are a number of ways for us to turn sound up... not so many to turn it down.

Or... another option, make the slider go to 11.

Apologies if this has already been received, but from what I can see my message on this got lost. Regarding volume sliders and 0dB, etc.:

I guess this has been resolved, but as a belated 2 cents: In the BEAST software we've simply said that 0 dBFS is as loud as you need to go. It's a sensible approach in a digital system, as it eliminates the possibility of clipping with simple cases like playing a soundfile or example (I'm anticipating questions about clipping on sc-users with the current system), and is almost always adequate unless your amplification is turned way down. Then there's no need to learn a shortcut, just put the slider over to the right.
