red marks at the top of the timeline

midi/vsti

I imported a midi track into v5, which I just downloaded today. I run the lead track through daHornet just to fiddle around with it, and I noticed that every time I made a change to the VSTi, there were red marks created in the timeline (the part where the numbers and dashes are). What exactly is going on there? Any ideas? Is this something I should worry about? am I creating events or something, where my settings will only change at that point? Or what?

red marks appear when the audio output exceeds 0db - right click anywhere in main VU meter then on “clip” to switch this feature off -

Ok, that makes sence. I hadn’t fixed the output on the VSTi, so it must have been clipping. That makes sense. I like that, actually. Think I’ll keep that on.
