No, it would just add confusion.
- The meters are there to show levels at the AD/DA converters,
i.e. to allow you to check you are using those in a sensible
way. They happen to be on the same window as the mixer, which
can be useful as they suggest to the user which signal is
being controlled by a fader. But otherwise they are not part
of the mixer, and a better place for them would be with the
HW gain controls.
- The post-fader signals in the mixer are not available anywhere,
they just get summed to the bus. There is little point in measuring
such signals, even less with a meter that just shows digital peak
level and has no relation at all to the real loudness of a signal
and what it contributes to a mix.
There are three of them, and Alleline.
