logarithmic scale on the y-axis (or x-axis, for spectral info)?
i'm afraid, the answer is "no" (so you have to perform any data mangling 
first, and then show it on a 2nd display-only array)

it shouldn't take much longer than filling the primary array though. so 
if you are able to do this without dropouts, you should be able to do 
the data mangling as well.
that is: if you are recording live into the primary array, do a 
simultaneous recording of the mangled data into the secondary array.

if this is not an option, you might want to check the "iem_tab" library.
