I didn't realize until trying to respond to a help post that when you get peak level per channel, it means left and right channel, and not the channel you loaded it to.
I thought you could load 10 different things into 10 different channels, and get the peak for each to do crazy cool synchronizations of sprites with different music parts, or robots with light that light up according to the sounds they're making. instead it's left channel and right channel
I understand channel means both of these things in many arenas, but we should also have some way of clarifying it, since you can mute channel 2 meaning the channel you loaded into the second slot whether it's playing out of the left or right side, and you can get peak level for channel 2 that includes anything playing out of the right side regardless of what channel you loaded it into. can be a little confusing
