ASRB (the Audio to Silence Ratio Balancer) is a very delicate thing. It’s design is aimed to act as a balance between too much and not enough activity and effect.
Imagine you have a rocket engine that is so powerful that if you leave it burning all the time, it overheats the rocket body that is stabilizing it and causes issues. This of course is a metaphor, and it won’t be dangerous to you; just exhausting if you get it wrong. The point is, in our little scenario, the rocket won’t get where it is going if the body overheats and therefore changes shape, putting the fins out of alignment and changing the flight trajectory.
So the captain devises a clever solution: he will fire the engines until the body reaches its heat limit, and then turn them off. The rocket will coast while the engines are off, losing a little speed, but the metal of the body quickly cools off. Before he loses too much speed, he fires the engines again.
If you get the ratio of thrust (audio) to coasting (silence) right, you can achieve the goal with a much better degree of success and accuracy. If you alter that balance, even slightly, it will introduce an error that will throw off the benefits of the balance. You will once again get too much or too little.
I did not model how much damage it would do to the benefits of ASRB introduce X amount of ASRB breakage. I modeled what ASRB was required and moved on to what was next on the list of things to do. If you want the benefits of ASRB, don’t break it.
ASRB gives your brain a short rest to help prevent overload on the input, decode and execute channels during input. This allows it to clear any queue of input that has built up while listening, and also begin executing. The result is that you will experience less mental load (prevent exhaustion) and achieve noticeable results faster.
