Excuse my ignorance, but why do bass players need a scope ?
Don't they have ears ? 

You can infer *some* information on how some periodic waveform
will sound from a scope display, but it's mostly useless.
I could easiy show you ten waveforms that look completely 
different but sound exactly the same.

It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
