In the L2's Safe mode - the Look Ahead and Attack dials are greyed out. So - are they variable? shifting Program dependent?
If so, why is this mode making less of a CPU hit that either the Transparent mode or the Modern mode?
And, while we're at it: if Safe mode does not induce any distortion at all, why wouldn't that be the default mode of choice?
Am I missing something here? Is there a trade-off I am not aware of?
