The zero voltage point of the input channel won't always be zero in
the digital data.  This is specified in the datasheets for the chips.
Measure would need to learn the offset, with some sort of calibration
button.  This has always been the case, but the offset varies across
laptops.  You might find other laptops have other offsets; displaying
something other than -10.

p.s. Jacob is not in
