Re: Red light

True. It has to be a foolproof circuit, where the LED voltage also switches on the mic's signal path. And the switch (transistor, relay, whatever) needs a bit more voltage than the LED.

Like everything else down to the logic gates, you can't truly begin to trust it until the day we have fully auditable open-spec hardware.
