Do you think there should be in-game music?

Yes, but only on certain events, such as dogfights.

No, it would ruin the atmosphere of the game.

Get a Mac, use Oolite’s iTunes integration. ;-)

Keep in mind here that, under OS X at least, Oolite may be playing up to 32 sounds at once. That’s another -15 dB if you want to avoid clipping entirely…

NO.
I'm using hyperradio :-) and I'm talking about the absolute max value (peak). I think it is right to say that a lower average value is a safer way and digital clipping will not occur at -15 db. But music is a dynamic thing.
