And Rocketburn, being a producer myself and knowing a few things about production, you would be surprised by how somethings are done when it comes to the soundtrack, and sometimes, somethings are achieved simply by pushing buttons... heck, back in the old days of sitcoms, the laugh track was added via a typewriter-like machine containing tape loops hooked up to the editing equipment, and during the editing process, when a laugh was needed, a button would be pushed to cue up a laugh.

I also do TV production, and I am quite familiar with in-studio linear editing, but I have never added bleeps in during filming. I've always just taken the studio-edited footage into Final Cut Studio and add it in. I suppose that if I were doing a show that involved no post-production (feeding right from the video mixer into the DVD writer), I might use the sound board to add a bleep, but I'm already enough of an octopus in the control room as is.
