I had noticed from the start I couldn't actually use the VSL meters, but I didn't take the time to look into the details.

Thank you, Sir!

I can't help but think that this meter calibration is an answer to the "My tracks are weak" complaint when setting the gains according to the instructions. This is the case with every digital mixer and users just aren't accustomed to looking at unprocessed tracks with enough headroom to handle unexpected occurrences.

What's really useful, for those who either record highly compressed material or like to live close to the edge, is that the height of the meter indication corresponds very closely to the percentage of the track area that's filled with squiggles.

I rarely hear complaints about tracks clipping, it's always the other way around.
