I guess they're used to eye candy over there in closed software land. Hell, I liked Jamin too until Fons hipped me to the fact that it's a vocoder.
As for theater and bullshit with the faders, well, that's what a lot of DJ's do for a living. They play records from Ableton, and pretend to be affecting the sound. Also, a lot of musicians too. I remember Keith Emerson's modular Moog had a series of lamps (this was before LEDs) arranged in a pattern of a waveform, and triggered off of the analog sequencer. The lights would blink to make it look like some kind of oscilloscope-type thing. His engineer labelled it "Fake TV" in the system diagram. When I asked him about that useless bit of pantomime, he very calmly and professionally explained, "That's for the visual component of the show".
So, whatever, the engineer got paid to flip some faders that weren't connected to anything. Could be worse, could be this:
