Hardware New Sound Devices 788t firmware with auto-mixer

Today I heard from Sound Devices rep John Tatooles that they are preparing a forthcoming firmware update for the 788t that will feature an "auto-mixer" function. This means a kind of voice detector on each channel that will only record the track whenever there is a sound signal of a certain (selectable) level. Can be very handy when you have actors on all eight channels and you have difficulty keeping up with who is speaking. Expected to be ready for download by the end of October 2011.

Tatooles has to be one of the sharper guys in his field. This would be a wonderful addition to the device. I can see how many pro users would find this addition attractive.
