hey wigglers,


has any one news on this theme?

the most software oscilloscopes that are used/recommended on this forum are not 64 Bit.

At the moment i am using
http://www.maxforlive.com/library/device/1918/jo-floating-oscilloscope
which i like but you can´t adjust it to lfo rates.

what are you 64 bit os x based people using for watching your waves?
tremblap
at the moment I use my own patch in Max, the one allowing me to do the comparison films (http://tremblap.tumblr.com)... but I'd like something else if possible... to compare ;-)

Hence my question in the previous thread.

you won't get a computer oscilloscope to display lfos properly, since voltages that low are blocked by your soundcard. one possibility is using something like the expert-sleepers modules that offer cv input or use a dedicated usb oscilloscope such as th bitscope
CatslikeJack
i have the expert sleepers modules and plug-ins (should have pointed that out), but am in need of a fitting oscilloscope.
because rate of the m4l-one, that i use at the moment doesn't go that low.
and the most other free ones are 32 bit only. and i don`t wanna pay 40 euro for a whole arsenal of tools. i just need an simple oscilloscope.

As recommended in the other threads about software oscilloscopes, WaveWindow AU:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wavewindow/id526600082?mt=12
CatslikeJack
i read through the other threads on this topic. ignoring wave window, cause of its specs.
i have bought it now to give it a try
and i have to say: it is really bad.

as product of 8 euro, i would give this au plug-in a
1 of 10.

pros:

-it is an oscilloscope, thats it.
-it shows the frequency, beginning from 30 Hz.

cons:

-its window is one size. what? 2015, where screen resolutions in production environments go from 1024*768 to 4K.
-the retriggering/repeating doesn`t go down to lfo rates (and thats particularly what i asked for in this topic)
-the capture mode doesn´t work at all on my system, not that i would want it to, just saying.
-all modes beside the sync are completly worthless in terms of giving information about waveforms and -length


so please "listentoyourheartbeat":

read the topic first and listen to your brain hihi , before making a recommendation.

PS: the link you sent, is for the stand-alone version, which one btw. has to purchase separately. seriously, i just don't get it
yghartsyrt
ah ok, I see. Had a look at the m4l oscilloscope and I see your problem. my suggestions would be audiofile engineering, but that would you set back 80$.
So besides modding the given oscilloscope, I have no other suggestion. I remember programming such oscilloscope in Max, but that file was lost in a crash.

i like very much this one hyper

I also use an app as oscilloscope. It's called "Oscilloscope". Does the job fairly well, although I don't use it for measuring. Just for displaying the waveforms from the modular, and for Lissajous fun.

For Mac/PC I don't have a solution.
lowacid
mmh i don't know "Oscilloscope".

For Desktop Macs, Signalscope is fine:

nothing there for me, sorry...

but, thanks for sharing.

any updates on this front?
I am thinking to get, instead of a cheap external oscilloscope, an expert sleepers module and use a software one.


Any analysis benefits on the external ones?

I have two - the Faberacoustical SignalScopePro app for my iPad and a real Rigol DS1054Z O-scope. The app (~$70) requires a Behringer UCA202 (~$25) or equivalent interface; you also need an attenuator module when feeding signals into the iPad 'cause it will only take about 1-volt max. But it's a simple way to look at waveforms. It's 2-channel, it also includes a levels meter, and a signal generator which is nice for tuning oscillators - I use that a lot. And it doesn't tie up rack space like a 'scope module. The Rigol is a real oscilloscope, 4 channels, and it will do/measure anything, more expensive - $349 - but I'm looking to do some DIY in the future so I'll eventually get my money out of it. Also, there's a simple hack that allows you to "turn it" into a DS1104Z, taking the bandwidth from 30MHz to 100MHz.
