Oszillos Mega Scope

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.

Oszillos Mega Scope used for Side-Chain compression


The different draw modes of Oszillos Mega Scope.

seperate waves mode
Oszillos Mega-Scope supports multiple inputs. This enables you to identify problem spots in you mix or composition.

seperate waves mode
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.

seperate waves mode
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.

seperate waves mode
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.
