Viewing OsciStudio output on a real oscilloscope


#1

Hello everyone,

I wish to connect a real oscilloscope to the computer to see on it the result of my sound files from Blender/OsciStudio

Can somebody tell me please, how to connect a real oscilloscope to the preamp that is hooked to my audio card.
What cables I need to use, please?

I have KIKUSUI OSC 5041 (not sure if that one could work). It also has XY mode, but I have no idea how to set up the whole thing properly.

Thank you in advance for your lights.

All the best to you all
Museek

Hi, Check this link out. It is a group that all do osciloscopes and that sort of thing. see you there.

hi!

can you post a picture of the oscilloscope?

Buying the cables

if you have stereo mini jack (3.5mm) output you want these cables:

if you have double jack (6.3mm) output you want to use these cables:

now you end up with 2 bnc adapters which you can hook up to almost all oscilloscopes.

Connecting the oscilloscope

The most common type of oscilloscope has a knob labeled “ms/div” (milliseconds per division), and the left most position will be labeled “X/Y”. That’s the mode you want to use.

  • The right channel goes into the deflection input, usually the first channel. If you’re lucky there’s a small “Y” written nearby.
  • The left channel goes into the “ext. trigger”. This might also be written as just “ext”, or if you’re lucky there’s a small “X” nearby.

There are a few oscilloscopes specifically made to work in X/Y mode. In this case it’s simpler

  • The left channel goes into the X input
  • The right channel goes into the Y input

Hi!
You’ve been very helpful. Thank you! I found the cable that works at home :slight_smile:
BNC adapters at local reseller.
After turning all the buttons like crazy, I finally could see the oscilloscope drawing figures on its screen.
Amazing! Felt in love.

That is funny, three days ago I saw someone on YouTube showing that oscilloscope can be used creatively for sound visualization.
I went to a local ebay-like platform immediately to see if someone is selling any oscilloscope. There was an auction ending within an hour. :smiley: I won it and here I am all in.

Thanks again for your help!

Yet, I would like to ask, Is there on this forum or elsewhere a place that list all tools (apps, hardware and so) that helps create sounds and animations for oscilloscopes?

thanks!

it’s a bit all over the place. there’s a list of some related software at the end of this page: https://www.oscilloscopemusic.com/software.php

for discussions there are at least two places i know of https://www.reddit.com/r/oscilloscopemusic and https://www.facebook.com/groups/vectorsynthesis
