yeah, I didn't realise that it is the design of the mixertrack screenshot 
from a known software I've posted before.

analog mixerboards has been developped for the best expression 
of human feeling over an amplitude modulator, why looking elsewhere?

yeah that's perfect! 

curiously I get 100.111 db at 4/6 from [fadtodb]'s scale.
