Hello Tom,
Not sure if someone said this already, the Wavecrest units can sample your  
data. Up to 40K samples per second continuous according to their 
literature, via  GPIB.
Their PC application software (VISI) has a scope mode where you can make  
this data visible just like on a two-channel sampling scope.
If you are lucky, you can pick one up for ~$500 on Ebay, or rent one.
