Wouldn't this mean that his system is very slow or at least needs such slow 
settings to run stable?
Which in turn means, he is used to slow reactions of the system / the gui...
And even if the gui reacts at once to his changes, this would confuse him, 
since the sound of his changes will be noticable later...


BTW: I myself use slow, stable settings sometimes for mastering where I don't 
need input or fast reactions...
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the 
Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be 
replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
