You're right, I was :-)
Didn't expect it to reproduce a smooth sweep.
It's a good test, but doesn't show up the limitations at all.
(dunnow, maybe in a better listening environment, there certainly were a
few artefacts revealed when mixing out of phase with the original)
Next I tried with white noise,
and the metallic sizzle appeared like magic.

by noisey pc.
