    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.

    Re: Spectrum analyzer details?

    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.
