I started experiments last weekend... and for what I've investigated by reading this whole thread (and other Vector Rescanning threads) is that its very important that your Osciloscope has XY mode with Z input and also that the bandwidth is at least 2Mhz-5MHz.dnigrin wrote:A friend recently got me into this vector rescanning stuff while I was over his house, where he's got all these LZX, Brown Shoes Only, etc.. modules.
Now that I'm back home though, where I have none of that (and no Euro stuff period, refuse to start the addiction!), but wondering whether I can use Max and my existing scope (Tektronix 2215, 60 MHz, XY mode, and with Z input).
I noticed earlier in this thread from years ago that i.m.klif was trying stuff, but that there were questions about ramp speed, sync of ramps with video, etc... But that there were interesting "experiments" to try. And then I see that he was apparently successful:
My initial experiments have not been too successful, and I think it's related to my approach to the ramps, their frequencies and sync, etc... So hoping someone's got tips for me!
Fair warning - though I'm quite adept with Max (see my sig and website for several of my creations), I'm a total video noob....
What osciloscope are you using? I'm very lucky since today I'll get a second hand Vectrex to try with it (instead with my Scope which was a total failure).
