Initially, not looking at the account name, I would have thought it was Julian Krause due to the accent. :facepalm:

Only have a minor quip about the advice in the end never ever to use the multichannel sweeps e.g. L+R -- sure, don't use it regularly or often, but it doesn't make any sense to have the option there purely for decoration. I sometimes would use it myself to quickly see what a mono bass signal would sum into instead of vector averaging left and right sweeps.

He doesn't say that you cannot use it for a checks/tests but that someone shouldn't use it for creating EQ filters.
