Changing pre-trigger buffer size

Post by AlexP » Fri Dec 09, 2016 11:12 pm

Files generated at rapid data rates are pretty massive - but almost half of a file is of no use to me as it's just a constant zero value before the trigger is hit. Any way to change the size of the pre-trigger buffer to be 10% of the total sampling time instead of 50% as it currently is?

Hi AlexP,

You can drag the yellow trigger diamond (circled below) if you are using an input channel for the trigger or you can adjust the amount of Pre-Trigger (highlighted) in the red box below.

Hope this helps,
