Watch your waves

Wave Observer is an oscilloscope and monitoring plug-in for time-domain audio analysis. It visually supports mixing, mastering and sound design by offering a number of unique features.

  • smooth continuous presentation of input signals (left, right and stereo)
  • wide time range (from one millisecond up to four seconds)
  • stabilization algorithm for fixing single waveforms on screen
  • freeze function including the ability to scroll through history

Observer modes

Two different observer modes allow distinct types of monitoring. The envelope mode offers long sweep times suitable for the analysis of the shape of envelopes and signal dynamics. The waveform mode allows you to view individual waveforms and oscillations by activating a specifically developed stabilization algorithm.
