J-Scope VST Oscilloscope plugin
J-Scope is a VST* oscilloscope plugin, which can prove invaluable to anyone who develops audio software and has a need to diagnose problems or visualise waveforms.
In operation it is very similar to a real oscilloscope, and most controls will be familiar to anybody who has used a hardware 'scope. The addition of a control for phosphor decay time allows the examination of rapidly changing waveforms as well as slowly evolving sound envelopes.
J-Scope accepts a stereo signal, and can display it in several modes:
- Two separate traces, L and R
- Single trace, sum of L and R
- Single trace, difference between L and R
- X/Y (Lissajous) plot, L vs R
- X/Y (Lissajous) plot, Sum(L+R) vs Diff(L-R)
- One-shot trigger mode with optional pre- or post-delay
- Linear, logarithmic and polar graticules
- Cursor measurement of level, time, frequency, note
- Timebase from 1s/div (0.1Hz) to 0.1ms/div (1kHz)
- Gain (Y) from x0.1 to x100
- DC or AC coupled
- Variable X-offset of trace(s)
- Y-offsets of stereo traces individually adjustable
- Adjustable trigger level, on positive or negative slopes
- Delayed triggering
- Display 'freeze' option
- Adjustable phosphor persistence
- Optional graticule with variable brightness
- 8 preset modes for quick setup
