Question I don't understand what "bit pattern transparent positions" are Can you explain that to me Answer This is an example of to what level we care about your audio work. When you turn the volume potentiometer and you cross 6dB steps the LED will flash. When the LED flashes you are at a full 6dB gain point. 6dB gain steps are equal to a full shift of the audio data either 1 bit up (+6dB) or 1 bit down (-6dB). So bit transparent positions mean that we at these points does not recalculate all the audio data to get the +/-6dB gain change we just shift the data 1 bit up or 1 bit down and then the rest of the audio data will be completely untouched.
