I'm looking to buy a beginner-level synth that has a built in oscilloscope so that I can see the waveform as I change it (also, ideally, a built-in speaker).

As an alternative, how hard is it to hook up an external oscilloscope to a synth? Is this a better way to see this information for a beginner?

Thanks for your help.

    I suggest using your ears and forgetting about the oscilloscope. – Todd Wilcox Dec 8 '18 at 6:44

    You can attach an oscilloscope to your synth output. It’s not typical for synths to have a built-in oscilloscope. – fferri Dec 9 '18 at 10:58
