Scope (and an example of how Scope looks when minimized to the system tray).
Scope records audio and displays an oscilloscope waveform of the sound. If the window is minimised, the waveform is shown in the system tray.
If you're running the latest revision of Windows and Internet Explorer, no other files
are required. However, if some system components are older versions or you don't run IE, you
may need to download some of the following files. Unless specified, the files should be installed in
your System directory (Normally, c:\windows\system
Unzip the file Scope.exe
into the directory of your choice.
Create the usual shortcuts for the Start Menu and Desktop as required.
If you needed to download any of the additional components, unzip them into your Windows\System directory.
The Scope window just shows a thin horizontal line even though I have a CD playing. Why?
In order to function correctly, Scope must be able to record/sample the current audio source. If this isn't happening check the following:
- Check no other applications are currently recording audio (for example, Sound Recorder).
- Check that the device you wish to record from (for example, CD audio) is selected in the Mixer. To do this, double/click the speaker icon in the system tray and select Options | Properties | Recording | Ok and ensure the Select option is checked for the required device(s).
- Check the Mixer volume for the device (as above) is set high enough.
