[chuck-users] New user, first question

Hello, chuckers. I'm new to the language and am working on my first project
(code to perform Terry Riley's "In C"), and I've got two related questions:

First, is there a way to regulate, compress or limit the cumulative volume
of shreds? Through the tutorial/documentation, I saw the .gain operator, but
I'm thinking that I'll have a variable number of shreds, so figuring out the
cumulative gain cuts in advance wouldn't make sense, and really, I'll mostly
be in danger of clipping when the additive waves are in phase and frequency,
but perhaps not elsewhere, but I wasn't seeing any obvious unit analyzers
for compression or gain control.

Second, and parallel to that, is there a way to globally change the gain of
the master dac for dynamics when the generators are in different shreds?

Thanks... I'm just getting started, and I'm sure I'll have more interesting
questions down the line once I've gotten beyond my simple note player
