Really? I have no recollection of suggesting that and
if I did am clueless as to the context within which I
would have cast that vote.

Besides all that, what does meterbridge have to do
with my reply?

For meterbride? I don't think so but am open to being
proven wrong.

I don't need more equalization control in JAMin but
often process the source to prepare it for mastering.
And in my experience that is the correct method.

I'm not against it because it doesn't affect audio

And my response stated that I think Joern's proposal
is good one. So I don't understand your point.

That affects the processing of audio and now that
you're forcing the issue I will go on the record
saying I don't know if it's a good idea. My instincts
leave me doubtful.

Your first proposal included links to documentation
that explained the idea. I took the time to read those
documents. I simply wasn't convinced and didn't reply.
I figured no response was the lowest volume vote that
I could cast and wanted to keep the tension between
you and I somewhat tempered.

I know you feel very strongly about this feature but I
am skeptical.
