take a look in the mixer window, with channel strips at full width. the  
numeric display immediately above the fader is the fader level, while the  
one immediately above the channel meter is the peak level. click in the  
peak level display to reset that particular channel (works while the  
transport is running), or ctrl-click to reset all channels.

yes, but that was one of the BIG selling points for the multiface for me  
-- get both the pci adapter and the cardbus adapter and you can easily  
flip the multiface between your desktop and your laptop. yes, it's a sweet  
little box!
