Oscilloscope XY Fun

Well I don't know about you, but this is my type of fun.

I stumbled on this oscilloscope demo that is actually done on a Rigol DS2072 digital oscilloscope.  Normally you see these types of demos on oldschool analog scopes.  The demo is played via a sound card hooked up to 2 channels of an oscope in XY mode.  In XY mode, one channel moves the X axis, one moves the Y axis.   There is actually a flac (lossless compressed) audio track downloadable here if you wanted to try it for yourself.

If you’re into this kind of thing you’ve probably seen the Youscope demo, it’s a classic!

If you haven’t check it out below.  The audio track for this one is located here.

Pretty awesome demo.  So I was actually quite interested in learning more about how these are constructed and I found the video below.

Alan does a pretty good job of explaining the basics of how this works.  Alan has a buncha other informative videos on his youtube channel if you are wanting more.  Thanks Alan.
