SCOPE or PLOT - which object is telling the truth?


    May 02 2018 | 1:37 pm
    Dear all,
    I would be happy if you could provide me an explanation:
    In the attached patcher if you increase the phasor frequency the signal is dissappearing in the scope object which I don't understand???
    In the plot object the the signal stays as I would expect it.
    Could somebody explain that to me as this is driving me crazy for some time with a larger patch where I got the same behavior and I thought it is about my code but it seems to be dependent on the visualization object (scope or plot).
    Thanks for your support.

      check out [scope~]'s @bufsize and @calccount - more info in the [scope~] reference

      Hey Captn :-),
      i see that with in increase in buffer size and a reduction of calccount to 0 the representation are getting closer to plot.
      As asked before:
      I still don´t understand why it is doing that? Even if I increase buffer size the visual signal representation is changing strangely. In addition plot and scope are not showing equal signals no matter how hard I tune with the scope parameters.... ???
      So coming back to my question: If I want to inspect a signal I assumed that scope is showing me how the signal looks like. But as I now understand it doesn't as changing scope parameters are changing the visual signal.
      As i am programming a lot of in gen I need something that I can rely on (PLOT, SCOPE,...) to debug my stuff.

      If you want to see the patcher correctly you have to click on the tab BASIC. :-)
      Hope to get a answer for this problem.

      All, found the answer.
      It is all written in the tutorial:
