I registered just to add my vote for this. The spectrum analyzer is the whole reason I bought the 4262 instead of a normal 8bit 'scope, and it just isn't complete with only a linear frequency axis.

I have just had a discussion with colleagues about this to raise the profile, I am now waiting for a decision from the development team.

A log frequency axis used to be available on earlier PicoScope software running on XP, and was taken away in the later versions for Win 7. Other handy features were taken away as well, including the meter function. Because of this I cannot use PicoScope 6 for vibration or audio spectrum measurements on Win 7. If you are lucky enough to have an older computer running native XP (not emulated), contact me and I can supply the original XP PicoScope program that has log frequency, meter, and other useful features that were removed from the current version.

The software is also available by contacting support@picotech.com, as is the case with all legacy software. Please note you would also need to have one of the older Picoscopes, as the majority of the current models will not be supported.

I have been giving the demo software a run through to decide whether or not to buy a 3205 MSO. I was wondering why this feature was missing. I plan on buying it mainly for audio work and would really love to see this implemented.

I'm really liking what I see so far. I can't see myself menu diving on a benchtop scope with a small screen when the computer opens up new ways to work.

Hello

I was surprised back when I purchased a 3224 that there was no log option.

I'm about to equip a new workstation and looking at a 4262 for audio analysis and I'm even more surprised that this has not been implemented yet six years later.

Can you confirm that you will implement this and if so when can we who work with Audio expect this basic and essential function?

Thanks in advance!

We have added your request to the list but we have no direct influence on the development department schedules.

Hi!

Thanks for reply. It makes sense to have good functions for audio analyzis with this scope.

We are in the process of testing, a release of the beta software will include this in the near future.
