Analog Input Recorder

Acquire and visualize analog input signals


The Analog Input Recorder provides a graphical interface to data acquisition devices.

Using this app, you can:

  • Configure device channels and acquisition properties.

  • Preview signals on several analog input channels for a selected device.

  • Record analog input data for a finite period (foreground) or continuously (background).

  • Create scripts in the Live Editor from the app session.

Open the Analog Input Recorder App

  • MATLAB® Toolstrip: On the Apps tab, under Test and Measurement, click the app.

  • MATLAB command prompt: Enter analogInputRecorder.


Opening the Analog Input Recorder deletes all your existing data acquisition sessions in MATLAB.

The session created by the Analog Input Recorder is not accessible from the MATLAB command line.
