Way back when, (When I didn't have a scope) I built a 555 circuit that
would stretch any pulse to 1S, which fired a beeper.

Later, I built a "logic analyzer" with an HC688(?) magitude comparator. 8
dipswitches, and 8 probes. It would trip the beeper if a given state occurred.

Got a lot of debug out of that.

Then there was the rig that used two 8 bit DACs to display the current
address plot of a running processor on a scope :)
