Yeah - I talked to the Waves guy at the Eddie Kramer thing @ RSPE and he said that the clip lights (on ALL their new stuff - api, v, ssl, jjp) do that - they are the same as the analog units. So, if you like to peg the meter on the real one, the plug-in is "supposed" to respond the same way.

I told him it was confusing and that there should be an actual DIGITAL clip light so you'd know when there was a problem... he looked at me as if he didn't get what I was saying and just said "you'll hear it if it actually clips"

so, now I ignore the RED LIGHTS and just listen - which I know is how you should ALWAYS do it but being taught that clips in protools are bad it's easy to get nervous when your session lights up like a christmas tree
