I've seen programs where the gain range was much bigger. Isn't it a setting in the program somewhere?
edit: Nevermind, was confused with the -192 dB gain range, but it only goes up to +6.
If you find that you _constantly_ have to go over +6 dB with a certain program, you could always edit the pad-in to be higher I guess.
Still, a range for these gain knobs (if only editable in the XML, no UI) would be nice for the people who use it for gain staging. But I agree it's not _needed_. Enough other ways to control the gain from one plugin to the next.
it is possible, but in acqua. Ie aquamarine features a -24... +24 Atm using current skin we can't do anything better: internally the same parameter is free, but on the skin is mapped in such way. Everything would appear wrong....there are many skins around... they would be all wrong!
