ProPhase 1.0 released
Katsura Shareware today released ProPhase 1.0 for Mac OS X Tiger, its professional digital audio software tool that displays detailed information on the phase, levels, and mono compatibility of stereo audio signals in real-time. The software provides a phase display with four different XY plot types as well as gain control, and enables users to monitor peak as well as RMS levels. ProPhase includes line, dots, and rainbow plot modes with linear and logarithmic scales to show phase display. Users can measure meter levels with a sum/difference meter or a correlation meter alongside clip indicators and label text. ProPhase is priced at $100, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
The software offers a variety of display modes, changing the "Axis" and "Grid" lines automatically based on the selected mode. An "Oscilloscope" mode simulates the classic hardware XY oscilloscope with the left input feeding the vertical Y axis and the right input feeding the horizontal X axis, while a "Vector Phase Scope" display mode simulates a standard vector scope alongside two Inverse Standard Phase Scope displays.
