Why did Avid get rid of the Phasesope and where can I get an equal replacement??? DAW Software

Why did Avid get rid of the Phasesope and where can I get an equal replacement???

WHY???? Arguably the most important tool an engineer can have and they removed it. I can't possibly understand why they would make a decision to simply not include it in Pro Tools 11 on.

First off, does anyone have an idea of why they would do that? Perhaps there's a good reason but I just cant imagine what it could be.

Secondly, where can I find a replacement with a phase correlations meter?

I know there are other phase scopes out there (blue cat, fluxe) but they do not have 'meters'.

I suppose I can get a hardware unit if there's simply no plugin available. But that just seems like a lateral move at best.

Any information on why and where I can get a replacement would be greatly appreciated.

Check those HOFA 4U freebies..
HOFA 4U - Free VST, VST3, AU, RTAS, AAX Plugins | HOFA-Plugins

Besides weird gray-orange scheme (which is subjective of course and one can accustom to it), they are very handy for various tasks (especially its Fader) and also AAX compatible.
Goniometer & Korrelator is switchable between Goniometer with different curves (peak, avg energy.. etc.) and also correlation meter. It isn't classic -1/+1 meter, but shows also width in stereo, so out of phase signals are being displayed in the bottom (negative) half of meter.

One thing, I don't get, mentioned Flux Stereo tools has also its -1/+1 correlation meter at its bottom with the exact same functionality as Phasesope.. What's wrong with that? Or what meters you want?

Opps... I totally spaced, didn't even notice it had one. I guess I was just used to the super simple PT phase scope. The Fluxe has so many bells and whistles I just didn't see it had a meter. I'll give it a shot. Thanks for the heads up.
