Indeed it is - check the pre section of the mixer / channel settings window. It's the incredibly small button just to the right of the pre-gain.

It depends on how you want it to show, it can be a bigger button if you want.

One of the best things about the cubase, nuendo mixer. Having a polarity switch like a real mixer. One of my issues with PT.
You can also select the clip, right clik/process/ phase reverse. This will do the file in case you are sending them out. I prefer the polarity button and channel batch export.

Ive tried to wrap my head around this one, but what does it do?

Lets say we have a bastrack/kicktrack, can it fix places where the kick phases out due to the bas automatically, this would be awesome, but the plugin doesnt seem to have some sort of sideschain so how do it "listen " to one or the other tracks phase? Someone understand what I mean?

Downloaded the demo so gonna sit with this a while.

Just plug it on the drums and bass tracks and let it do its magic, it especially noticeable for the low-end frequencies.
But note that this is a phase correction operation. it is not mixing the bass and the kik to live together in "harmony" during mixing, for that you will need something else (where you will need a sidechain).

Im interested in this plug, it seems if I put it on first kick track, and then the bas track... both shows up on the Pi scope that I put on the bastrack, means they must listened to each other. I mean there isnt anything to correct unless you have a second signal to compare phase with.
You cant just put a phase correction plug on a track and excpect it to do something (except flip the phase like on a console) So what the heck does it do if its not making i.e kick/bas live better in phaseland?

Thanks Shauli for this tip! Ive always wondered if no one could do such a plug, Fixing phase issues between kick/bas track got a whole lot simpler with this amazing plug, I talked to Radix and it works as I thought, awesome It should be in every engineers toolbag I think.

UAD Little Labs IBP - try the 14 day version if you have a UAD card.
There's also Voxengo's PHA-979
Both the above are sophisticated phase manipulation tools & can be invaluable. If you really need one nothing else will do.
