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?

  • 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 Apr 14 at 18:20

    @Tetsujin You have never been curious about what are the shapes behind the sounds :P ? – Tom Apr 15 at 9:49

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.


There is an online oscilloscope at https://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.
