To explain more fully the -9 VU phase evaluation; Lets say you have a mic on the snare top and a mic on a rack tom . If the Rack tom mic VU is picking up more than a -9 signal when the snare
is hit or vise versa; the snare VU is registering more than -9 on its VU meter when the tom is hit (or any other combination of mics) Then there is a possible phase problem happening . To remedy this bring down the level of the mic picking up to much of other instruments plus move the mics closer to the sound source .This is a simple visual way to make sure your phase problems are under control.
