    I'm sure that someone here can help. If not, could someone please point me
    to the correct group?
    I wanted to make the onomatograph, however, I had a few simple questions.
    1. can it be hooked up to a computer for the sound output?
    2. can a pair of wireless headphones be hooed up between the computer and
    the scope itself?
    3. can you somehow pull a neat little trick with the remote control device
    to select the pattern you want?
    4. can you do it in colour, change said colour and if so how?
    Thanks so much.

  2. If you're going to ask a question about something nobody's heard of,
    then you at least need to preface your questions with some background.

    You can't do any of the things you ask until you have a basic concept
    of what the thing is. ANd then surely it's a matter of design, rather
    than whether or not something can be done.

    its a sound-to-light machine made from a monochrome television with one
    extra set of horizontal deflection coils put into it. Just google it.

    You should start here:, or
    simply google for onomatograph.
    The link I provided suggests you need about 10 Watts per channel, so No, the
    sound card output would need to be amplified.
    Wireless headset transmitters can be connected to any source.
    The pattern is a function of the signals on the two audio input channels, so
    will vary according to the instantaneous amplitude and frequency being
    produced in each channel.
    That would require more thought, but yes, it could be done.

    I think your questions should be posted to the board that deals with this

    Google is your friend.
