The Single Stereo Display Compared to Stereo VU Meters

This paper describes the use of a single row of bi-color indicators to replace and overcome the deficiencies of the typical pair of meters used to show left and right signal levels in stereo applications. By using bi-color elements, a total of three colors are actually obtained; a single color when the left channel is driven, a single color when the right channel is driven, and a mixture of the two when both channels are driven. Watching the row of indicators during program operation will indicate three different amplitudes; the left channel volume, the right channel volume, and the difference between the two of them. These amplitudes are immediately obvious and very easy to interpret.
