Thus, The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America described the experiments conducted at American Steel and Wire Company with the help of oscillographs, some concert pianists being asked to try and change the timbre with the help of the touch: each test resulted in a change in the intensity of the ensuing piano sound (White 1930: 357-365).
Many data acquisition systems display waveforms as oscillographs, but that capability doesn't make them oscilloscopes.
Vision portable data acquisition systems combine the best elements of DAT/AIT recorders, oscillographs, and oscilloscopes.
