I disagree. I never heard zipper noise, when I fade in or out or when
using MIDI panning. Usually those steps aren't audible when fading or
panning, but I often missed steps for static levels. Speaking for synth
from the 80th and 90th, for the panning synth usually didn't use all 128
values, but 128 steps usually are used for the volume. I don't remember
audible steps when fading, but I remember that there were not enough
steps for optimal mixing. YMMV!
