 Sorry to reopen but I really think it still needs further discussion.

 A 'peak' view like in !SoundForge and Audacity is very useful for several
 reasons. At least to me (and other music collectors) to spot music tracks
 which were processed through dynamic compressors when mixed in the studio.
 This is especially important for remasters and/or reissues of old material
 when dynamic compressors weren't the norm, what is nowadays called the
 loudness war - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loudness_war

 It would be really nice to have this feature available. Thank you.
