  • Working with Phase Alignment within a DAW
  • Understanding and working with Invert/Flip at sample and channel levels
  • Summing Values for Phase Cancellation
  • Understanding Scrub/Nudge values and how to calculate them
  • Working with Nudge values to achieve various Frequency Cancellations
