Oszillos Mega Scope from Benjamin Schulz is a BPM‑synced oscilloscope
with support for multiple inputs. I think it's a wonderful tool for
learning more about what effect plug‑ins do to audio tracks.
Just insert an instance of OMS on a track, then your choice of effect
plug‑in, and then another instance of OMS, and you'll be able to see
exactly how the plug‑in has changed the volume envelope. You even have
the choice of superimposing the before/after waveforms to see the
changes more clearly. I found it great for tweaking compressor and
transient shaper settings.
Want to see what your favourite transient shaper is actually doing?

Oszillos-Mega-Scope is a BPM-synced oscilloscope with support for multiple inputs. It gives you a visualisation of the waveforms you feed it with. This can be handy in different situations like compressor-fine-tuning, sound design, drum programming, etc. Oszillos-Mega-Scope features a resizeable and intuitive user-interface that lets you just do you work.
Supports multiple Channels.
Low CPU usage
Supports different zoom-levels (1/32th note to 16 bars).
Two different visualisation modes (separate waves, combined waves).
Los Angeles based musician VoltageCtrlR shows Oszillos Mega Scope in the first seconds of his video. If you're into experimental synth music, check out his other stuff.
Oszillos Mega Scope used for Side-Chain compression
The different draw modes of Oszillos Mega Scope.
Oszillos Mega-Scope supports multiple inputs. This enables you to identify problem spots in you mix or composition.
The waveforms of those inputs can be be drawn in seperate ways. Either as seperated
waveforms or into one colored waveform. This helps you identify the components of you mix.
It's ideal when fine tuning the parameters of a side-chain-compressor on the Kick and Bass. Now you can really see what is going on.
In this example you can see the Kick-Drum (yellow), the side-chain compressed bass line(green) and the original bassline (blue).
The visual feedback of Oszillos Mega Scope really helped to finetune the compressor settings.
And even with trditional compression: Oszillos-Mega-Scope can be of big help.
You can identify the attack part of the audio-material in question easily and fine-tune the attack setting of the compressor with ease.
The visualisation of the tail also help to get the release and threshold setting of you favoured compressor just right.

fixed loading and saving of settings on all hosts
window width and height is now stored as well
fixed a bug with hosts, that do not provide proper BPM-information
Oszillos Mega Scope 1.3 Beta 1 Windows
Includes all the changes from the mac version
hopefully fixes a Bug when used with Jeskola Buzz
Oszillos Mega Scope 1.3 Beta 2 Mac OS X
Fixed a bug that might have caused the cursor to run backwards in some circumstances.
Oszillos Mega Scope 1.3 Beta 1 Mac OS X
Added four different draw modes: fast, precise, shaded and deep, some are eye-candy, some are quite usefull
Fixed an offsetting problem with large buffer sizes
Sample perfect alignment of waveforms synced to the BPM now also works when you have multiple instances in
different track or in the same track.
Fixed that loud waveform got drawn behind the UI.
Oszillos Mega Scope 1.2 Beta 1 Mac OS X
Mac OS X Version!
gain is now applied uniform to all waveforms
a 0db bar is draw so you know where you're at. (thanks martin)
Now the waveforms are aligned sample perfect to each other
Oszillos Mega Scope 1.1 Windows PC
small cosmetic changes

Added gain slider
Oszillos Mega Scope 1.1 beta 5
You now can choose which channel to process (Left,Right,Mid,Side)
Oszillos Mega Scope 1.1 beta 4
Ok, this one had nothing to do with multiple screens, it was a off-by-one bug that cause an mallformed assert to
fire (so not really a bug, but paranoia ;o) )
changed location of minidump so it works with Vista and Windows 7
Oszillos Mega Scope 1.1 beta 3
hopefully fixed a bug causing reaper to crash when working with multiple screens.
