Well, at the same time uses as much of the system's output resolution as possible. So historically, if we think about a mixer and we think about the concept of headroom as it relates to summation across the mix bus, we can think about the summation of multiple electrical signals onto a single wire and if there is too much voltage running in that mix bus, it's going to start clipping or distorting.
