Note that the result is *not* the 'average RMS' level
but the maximum RMS over any 1 second period.

It's an indication of the maximum volume, not the
average one. If you just take the slice of one sec
that produced the maximum and replace the rest by
silence you get the same value.



O tu, che porte, correndo si ?
E guerra e morte !
