Textual Output

edited December 1969 in SignalScope Pro
I'm thinking about using SignalScope and SignalSuite as a poor man's Audio Precision system (within the limitations of the available A/D and D/A equipment) to measure sundry aspects of an amplifier under construction. While having the graphcial output is good for interactive work, a tabular result - actual numbers, in a textfile - would be good too. Does SignalScope provide a means of getting the measured data out as a textfile?

Thanks,

-- Pete

  • Pete,

    Once registered with a valid serial number, SignalScope will indeed create an ascii text file containing data from the current measurement. The text file can then be opened in another program, such as a spreadsheet or numerical analysis application, for further processing or plotting.

    Thanks!

    I didn't see that in the product info - I may be blind, or mebbe it's missing. If missing, may well be worth adding.

    I'll be buying a license this week if all goes to plan. Any recommendations on an external I/O system? I think I'll want 24 bit 192 KHz.... Just 2 channel. Cheap :-)

  • Pete,

    For an inexpensive external interface that supports 24 bit, 192 kHz sampling, you might want to check out the Edirol FA-66. It offeres a FireWire interface (and can be bus powered so you don't need to use an external power adapter) and up to 4 channels of analog I/O in a small package. My only complaint with the Edirol FireWire interfaces is that the sample rate has to be set manually with a switch on the unit itself--it cannot be set in software.

    You can get an FA-66 for around $350. Unless you go to a PCI card, I don't know if you can get much cheaper than that for sample rates as high as 192 kHz.

    Thanks again. I'll take a look. Manual sampling setting isn't a problem (guess how the Alesis Masterlink does it? and it's not even networkable :-().

    And an external device should be better at constant technology than a PCI card, since the external device is well removed from the evil EM noise which lurks within our computers.
