Now I fiddled a bit with that. I don't like it much because
it is incredibly unreliable. The 'quasi peak detector' of
the mas is very 'quasi' but not so much a 'peak detector'.
If we don't read the peak value exactly when it happens we
miss it. I now installed a polling thread that reads out the
mas quite often but still many peaks remain undetected. So
the whole peak meter is a toy and not a reliable measuring
