      I don't agree, 1.0 is just no change to the input - granted. If you are
      in danger with clipping in that case, think it clipped already before.
      Depends on the application of course, but 128 for unity would not allow
      to set a Midi slider to a no change position without correcting it (with
      lp.scampf or lp.scampi of course ;-)
      On the other hand, I never use gain~ anyway, I don't like its curve.
      Personally I don't care...

      ja genau.

      ja genau! an integer gain object, what a stupid idea!

      well, if you're gonna control it with a real world controler you'd
      appreciate it. And even a screen control would have only integer
      resolution determined by pixels...
