Not answering for Fons, but I've done a lot of live sound mixing over the years.
In live mixing you often need to meter at different points in the signal chain to
check levels, as they are constantly changing, often unpredictably. Nothing ever
stays as it was in a sound check. (I personally wouldn't use a DAW running
on commodity computer hardware for live mixing, but that's another matter ;-)
