In this free video tutorial, brought to you with the support of Nugen Audio, you will learn how to interpret the vectorscope view in Visualiser2.
For more information about Visualiser2 please visit the Nugen Audio website.
What Is A Vectorscope?
There are two views in the vectorscope:
The Lissajous view plots the left channel on the x axis and the right channel on the y axis but the whole graph is rotated by 45 degrees so that the x and y axes are at 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock with halfway in between (the centre of the stereo image) is at 12 o'clock.
The Polar plot presents only the positive half of the Lissajous but offers more display options and a stereometer which displays information about the stereo position of the signal.
In This Tutorial
Watch the tutorial to see how the two views display test tones and a stereo piano recording with particular reference to identifying out of phase content.
