Key

XY - The ability to do XY fully, NOT VECTORSCOPE operations. If it was limited to the 45° lines it didn't count.

Multi-Instance - The ability to recognize additional instances and display their content, NOT the ability to do 5.1 ect...

Color Control - Loosely the ability to alter the color of the elements of the plug-in.

Sync - Options the scope gives to keep the waveform from "going all over the place".

Freeze - A distinct button that stops the display so it can be inspected.

Resizable - Ability to change the size of the plug-in, assumed continuous. If it is discrete sizes this is noted.

Clean Full-Screen - Ability to display full screen with NO additional text, controls, logos etc... some plugs, due to shape, can't go full screen but get close. Others get very close but may still have small elements visible there so I give them some credit.

Measurements - Loosly ability to achieve some kind of measurement. If there was a time axis or dB axis I gave a yes, but some have far more options in this regard for very technical measurements.

Stereo - Ability to display both the left and right channel at the same time.

Zoom - Ability to zoom in specifically on the time axis.

Extra Cool Options - For plug-ins with unique features or that have a lot more options.

Level - My general opinion on which ones I recommend. This doesn't mean scopes without a level are bad or that I dislike them. This is also specific to my DAW and system and you may find different results on yours.

Notes

All cpu testing was done on an i9-850K with a RTX 3080. The baseline CPU consumption of the project used with no additional plugins was 4%. For the blue only 10 instances were used and the processing meter in FL was recorded. For the orange 20 instances were used and the processing meter in FL was recorded. All UI interfaces are kept OPEN. Some plug-ins improve significantly with it being closed, but if a plug-in causes problems by simply having the UI open then I want to know.

Special Cases And Notes

S(M)Exoscope - Mutes audio after it. There may be a way to turn this off, I didn't look to far into it.

Signal Analyzer - 32 bit only, if the system was left idle (no audio playing) the consumption rockets up to 97%.

Oscillos-Mega-Scope - HUGE FPS drops with instance increase. Also forced me to sign in each time before use.

OccularScope - At 7 instances the system total freezes, massive FPS drop up to this point. Had to force close the program with task manager.

TrackMeter - Was stable for the testing surprisingly, but I ran across a lot of graphical bugs. It would hang, lag alot, or displaying waves that clearly were not the input.

Scope by DiscoDSP - Only gave me my left audio channel.

Psyscope - Only works correctly when DAW playback is happening. It won't work if there is no playback.

*Any zero measurements are because they are not available.
