I'm crafting new tones on the BOSS SY-300 guitar synth and visualizing the waveforms would help a lot.

If I run an EHX Superego into the SY-300 for infinite sustain, is there a way that I can run an oscilloscope on my Windows 10 machine so that I can see the waveforms in real time?

    There is an online oscilloscope at academo.org/demos/virtual-oscilloscope To be honest, I haven't tried it out, so I'm not sure if it updates in real time, but unless you're willing to put out for a commercial oscilloscope, you don't have many options.

  • Could I just ask… why do you think looking at an oscilloscope will help you voice synths? I've been voicing synths since 1980 [for many years actually professionally] & in all that time I only ever used my ears.

    @Tetsujin You have never been curious about what are the shapes behind the sounds :P ?

BOSS SY-300 has an audio interface. You can connect it to the computer via USB cable and use any kind of audio recording or visualisation software you like.
