here's ron parker, back on his neverending quest for simplicity and 
correctness(tm) :-D

you are right, jamin is fine as it is and should not be bloated with 
features. (btw, i do agree with you in that i don't really see the point 
of balance controls per band).

*however*: having a little pop-up window "correct for headphone 
listening" with a bunch of tweakables can't hurt :) (runs)

but then, i was not seriously requesting that feature, i just meant 
david's software is interesting food for thought in the context of 
mastering, and if one day it becomes a LADSPA plug, the whole point is 
moot and folks can plug it any old place in their audio chain.

very interesting pov. i completely agree. if the jamin folks do, too, 
this should be put on their website as a design guideline.
