Graph Paper

If you want to create a larger picture out of audioscopes, I recommend using graph paper. You will be able to use your drawn picture as a guide. You'll also have all the width values right there at your fingertips which will eliminate any guessing later. Here is how to use the standard size graph paper (4 lines per inch) most effectively.

Using bound* graph paper

I use it so that the binding is on the left hand side for 2 reasons.... it's more like your tv screen that way and it also keeps your scope all on the same page (without having to scroll to see the bottom part) Leave at least one line on the top and bottom to be safe. I consider each block as 10. (10 width and 10 height) Maximum width per line is 540 which means you can extend on to another page--just be sure to tape it together so your numbers stay accurate. Once you have it drawn, go back and write in all the width values. If you use odd numbers in your width (7, 12, 15 or whatever- -anything not divisible by 10) it's a good idea to add the total for the line and make sure it adds up to the rest of the lines. (That is something that took me a while to break down and start doing, but I do it now on any line that could be off) One more thing....if you use a different height (other than 10) it won't allow you as much room on the graph paper--just keep that in mind because it can be very easily overlooked.

*You may also use loose leaf graph paper and store it in a binder.
