Phase View

This view displays the phase of the signal versus frequency.  It is most useful when examining the phase difference between the right and left channels.  To do this, select the "stereo" option in the settings dialog box and then choose the "Transfer Function" option.

The frequency scaling is governed by the current scaling options.  The zoom controls located on the toolbar can be used to adjust the displayed frequency span anywhere within the measurement range.

The mouse can be used to measure the frequency and phase information directly off the plot.  In addition, the <Edit><Copy> menu command will place the current phase data on the clipboard in tabular format.  This can then be directly pasted into any spreadsheet or text file.

The phase is greatly affected by the choice of smoothing window.  Selecting "Uniform" will produce the cleanest phase response.
