Virtual Oscilloscope to show differences in sound waves in real time. An oscilloscope is a useful tool for anyone working with electrical signals because it provides a visual representation of the signal's shape, or waveform.

Virtual Oscilloscope to show differences in sound waves in real time

This allows you to measure properties of the wave, such as amplitude or frequency. The initial signal above is a 200Hz sine wave, which has an amplitude of 5 volts. The frequency of this wave can be adjusted by using the "Input Wave Frequency" slider. (You can also choose to display a square wave.) If you are browsing using the latest version of Google Chrome, the input dropdown box allows you to select "live input". Since waveforms come in a wide variety of shapes, amplitudes and frequencies, oscilloscopes need to have a number of controls to adjust the display of the waveform so it can comfortably fit inside the viewport.

Freeze live inputThis tickbox freezes the input allowing you to effectively take a snapshot of what is displayed on the oscilloscope at a given instant in time. Fun Science: Sound. It's finally possible to see the movement of guitar strings in real time. When cameras try to capture guitar strings being played, they see wavelength-type movements from each string.

This is pretty awesome, but it can only be seen on camera all due to the camera’s rolling shutter effect. The wild wiggly effect is totally invisible to the naked eye, but not anymore! The Wobble Strings project is able to recreate a camera’s rolling shutter effect for the human eye in real time through a sweep line projection. To pull this off they let the speed of the sweep line control in accordance with the pitch of the strings. Pretty clever right! To learn more about how they created this amazing Wobble String projector, be sure to watch the video below! Needing/Getting - OK Go Sandbox. Sensor Sounds: Magnet - OK Go Sandbox.

Creating a soundscape – A music unit for years 3–4

In a balanced, high-quality music programme, students will experience the elements of music – beat, rhythm, pitch, tempo, dynamics, and tone colour – and the structures of music – form and texture – through the skills and understanding they gain during the programme. These skills and understanding are: listening and responding; singing; playing; creating; reading and recording; analysing and appreciating. Students experience all of this through rich learning in each of the four music strands of The Arts in the New Zealand Curriculum. Motivation The following question motivated the writing of this 'Creating a soundscape' unit: How can we use the teaching examples in the Into Music series to ensure the suggested learning outcomes are being met by students, and that there is rich learning through all of the curriculum strands?
