I agree that this should be simpler, it seems odd that we can do a fancy frequency domain analysis out of the box, but that level detection requires so much assembly of bits and pieces.  Level indicators crop up in many of our high-priority use cases.

I can imagine that someone who's not that into soundtechniques being scared off if they have to use combinations of convolvers, filters, compressors to read out the soundlevel of a signal. Why not indeed add that to the analyser, seems like the perfect place.
