    maybe my excerpt was in the wrong context. I never doubted that anything added to 0dBfs will not end in unpleasant distortion.
    My point was, that gain staging in digital consoles leaves you with possibilities (depending on the console) where the console will tell you it is clipping but will actually give you wanted side effects without destroying the signal.

    This will show what I am talking about

    AFAIK you can gain stage and avoid the clipping artifacts,
    and in most likely places you will be notified if clipping could be happening.
    If you also selected other layers then you could see it in other less observed places where it could happen.
    What you cannot see is every place at once. Would be a nice AH feature to warn if clipping was anywhere to alert you to look.
    But I guess they figure sensible folks just keep the signal levels low enough throughout that there is no risk.

    And of course if you apply fx or other processing you get whatever they do to the signal just fine if you do not clip anywhere.

    On dLive the clipping LED not necessarily is a sign for destroyed audio.

    True
    It is a warning that you are close , but could be clipping, and you should back off the gain to avoid the light.
