Oscilloscope Clock

I can’t imagine a cooler clock for a synthesizer recording studio. You can special order this Heathkit OR-1 oscilloclock and a very cool looking Model 1 version at oscilloclock.com.

“From 1947 to 1992, the U.S. based Heath Company produced electronic kits for everything you can imagine: radios, TVs, computers, robots, ham gear, and electronic test equipment. Yes, you guessed it – they also produced kits for oscilloscopes! My Grandpa purchased one such scope, the Heathkit OR-1, around 1960. …The problem is, I have too many oscilloscopes. But I don’t have enough Oscilloclocks. What more fitting way to keep Grandpa’s legacy alive, than to retrofit his Heathkit?” – oscilloclock.com

I missed Soundbeam when it came out a few months ago. It’s a visual spectrum and waveform analyzer for iOS. I’m not sure about the license attached to recording it’s video output but I think this would be cool to use in a promo music video (update: in a Tweet the developer said it’s ok to use Soundbeam’s visuals in your own videos as long as you send them a link to what you created).

“Soundbeam is an audio analyzer that processes the input of your microphone in real time displaying it like a classic oscilloscope.” – evilwindowdog.com
