Which explains a lot. If the input gain on the main console
was set too high, it wouldn't be able to take a fulll level
signal form the Yamaha. If at the same time the faders on
the main console were too low (to compensate), the whole
system would start clipping even at low output levels.
And that confirms the following rule: if you give a non-
technical user N level controls in series, the probability
of having them set up correctly will be around exp(1 - N).
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
