SignalTools is a suite of multi channel metering and analysis tools included in the free DigiRack plugin collection. Compatible with all Pro Tools systems and VENUE, SignalTools includes the redesigned SurroundScope plugin and introduces the new PhaseScope plugin. With a comprehensive set of features, an easy to use interface, and capabilities for hands on operation, SignalTools plugins give you the tools you need for precise level control and phase coherence live or in the studio.
SurroundScope and PhaseScope include support for different meter types (RMS, Peak, VU, and more), peak hold preferences, and Leq(A) metering. Ideal for surround mixing, the SurroundScope plug-in shows a graphical representation of signal levels for each audio channel in the multi-channel sound field. PhaseScope, on the other hand, is invaluable when comparing the output phase of a stereo track or any two streams of a multi-channel output where perceptual coding might take place.
SignalTools are invaluable for achieving more accurate mixes. The simplified user interface makes it easy to select channels for Leq(A) or phase comparison—just click on the channel buttons surrounding the display to focus the meters. The scales and other parameters can be addressed from a mixing worksurface such as Digidesign’s ICON, Control|24™, or Command|8® for maximum convenience.
