    Oscilloscope/audioscope app for Mac?
    I'm helping a friend build another Roland TB-303 clone called a x0xb0x.
    We need an O-scope and probe to check sine and square waves on AC and DC voltage circuits.
    It'll probably be easier to just purchase a used O-scope but I am curious to know if someone has an app for one.
    Cheers!

    ThinkGeek :: iMSO-104 iPad Oscilloscope
    Haven't tried it - but it made all the electronics trade rags.

    Sorry - only thing I know of - and it's for iPad not Mac.

    Thanks for the reply Ivan.
    Looks cool on an iPad but for the price I could get an actual o-scope.

    For $299?? You wouldn't be able to find a good one for anything near that....

    yeah.. but $299 + the cost of an Ipad you can get a nicely used o-scope.

    Yeah but for $299 + the cost of an iPad = you get an iPad + an oscilloscope

    So for the same bucks:

    Choice #1: Get an oscilloscope...which can only do "oscilloscope stuff".
    Choice #2: Get an iPad + the oscilloscope app...which can do "oscilloscope stuff" + a lot of cool "iPad stuff"!!!

    I'm sort of half-teasing...since I'm assuming a "real" oscilloscope can do more than the iPad oscilloscope app. But if I'm wrong about that...then the iPad + app. would be the better deal.

    Of course I'm sure you weren't thinking of spending that sort of money either way...and just wanted a low cost (or free) oscilloscope app. to run on your Mac computer.

    I found this app also... Electroacoustics Toolbox.
    A bit costly but it has all the functions I need for electronics troubleshooting.
