Positive and negative amplitude values. I'm not sure how useful this
really is. If you have a huge DC-offset in your signal, you'll notice this
right away as there are more samples on the neg/pos side. On the other
hand, ecasignalview could just calculate the DC-offset and show it as a

Hmm, what says? :) This is probably caused by ecasound's int->float
conversion. When converting an integer value with range of [-32768,32767],
ecasound could either divide by 32768 or 32767. I've chosen to divide
by 32768, so that the resulting mapping is [-32768,32767] -> [-1,0.99997].
More generally, ecasound divided a signed integer by 2^(n-1), where n is
the number of bits used to represent the integer.
