I am responding to this post here because ever-lovin’ Nabble is such a bloody hassle to use:

How do y’all feel about indicators showing where clipping occurs?
To do it really right, a clipping indicator should have a user-adjustable “clip” (headroom) level, e.g. -9 dBFS. This enables the user to set a specific amount of headroom before 0 dBFS clipping. The indicator would then show the user if he has exceeded his established headroom level. The headroom level would be set as a Preference. If the user doesn’t want to specify headroom, he need only set the headroom for -0 dBFS.
