View Full Version : Spectrum analyzer details?

I had always assumed the full-width spectrum analyzer
screensaver worked like this:

- from centre to the left was the L channel

- from the centre to the right was the R channel

- high frequencies were towards the centre, low
towards the edges

Now I'm not so sure about the last part. I'm playing
Christmas music as I write Christmas cards. It's not
exactly bass-laden material! :-) And it's the outer
edges of the spectrum that are most active on high
material, like choral music.

So which is it, high material towards the edges or low
material towards the edges?

Thanks.

Wow, that answers all I wanted to know and more!

So it does work the way I thought it should work. And
since you tested it with tones, I must have been
misinterpreting what I was hearing versus with what I
was seeing.

Although what I suspect is that choral voices (even
the Vienna Boys' Choir!) are much deeper than you'd
think.

Thanks Milhouse!

BTW sorry it looks like I didn't search the forum for
an answer, but like some here I'm doing this by
e-mail, so I don't even see the forum.

You can always go to forums.slimdevices.com to do the search - that's what
I'm doing regularly. Use mail to read/write, go to the forum for research.
