Hi all,
Im looking to get a scope (entry level) for my synth and electronics diy adventures.
(First of all im in the uk so prices and brands are not the same with the us Sad )

There is a large amount of info about rigol 1052e (around 250gbp) and there is also the updated range of 1074z (4chan around 450gbp).

One other thing that comes to mind is about the importance of a function generator on your workbench if you are building diy synth stuff...!?

There are some sigland and rigol entry level but also you can get the rigol 1074z-s with build in generator. (Anyone using this one?!)

Any ideas?

Thanks

Rather than a frequency generator i think a frequency counter is more appropriate for sdiy. As for a scope If you only intend to do audio stuff, a cheap scope will suffice. I started with a 10mhz analog scope and for years it has served me well enough. I would recommend at least two channels tho.

Im going to do diy synth/sound/music making and some electronics - arduino, pi etc

---- NOT crazy reverse engineering etc ---

My digital side is usually making small interactive installations with some students (design and architecture MSC students) and building arduino/PIC based diy synth modules for fun.

As for my skills is hard to fix a used one if somethign goes wrong, I think I want to get something 'new' to start with.

What do you think?
