Accurate metering and test signal generator

Hello everybody.

There are a couple of features that I expected to find in my new StudioLive 32S, but can't find them nonetheless:

1) almost all mixers I've had in the past, either analog or digital, had a built-in test signal generator for testig the outputs and the connections, and for helping with the process of setting up speakers and monitors, also useful for testing external equipment such as outboard effects.

2) meters: I really miss a page in the display that shows all meters at once with precise dBFS readouts (peak values). Only the LED meters are available and there's no way to know the precise readout. And, speaking of meters, I also miss a phase correlation meter, that would hep me to find out-of-phase signals even when I'm not wearing headphones or am off-axis from my studio monitors.

Both these functions are very important everytime you have to test your outboard, or you're preparing for a new recording session in the studio, and I guess they're very important in a live situation for testing speakers and all connections.

I really hope to see these in a future firmware release.
