The suggestive name of Frequency Generator reveals its main function from the start. It is designed to generate audio signals of various frequencies, which ranges between 0.01 Hz and 23999.99 Hz.
Such a tool might be needed for troubleshooting and running tests on audio hardware equipment, but it can also have artistic uses.
Generate tones of different frequencies
What Frequency Generator actually does is output a tone of the frequency you choose. It also features a recording function to help you save the generated sounds to a wave file on your computer for further analysis.
There are various configuration settings you can experiment with, all displayed in the lower side of the interface. Frequency Generator features one carrier and two modulators in AM, PM and FM whose parameters you can modify so as to obtain the tone you are looking for.
Adjust amplitude, frequency and other parameters
You can change the frequency and the amplitude of the signal to alter the tone, apply it peak and split effects, change the trigger mode and level. Frequency Generator enables you to experiment with sine, square, triangle, Sawtooth positive or negative and pink noise waveforms, displaying the signal representation within its main window, alongside the volume level meter.
It comes with multiple oscilloscope types that you can use, namely Con. Lines, Dots, Mir Lines, Spikes and Vert. Lines and features a scroller, an accelerator and amplification effects.
A handy testing utility for hardware manufacturers
Frequency Generator is a great tool for audio hardware manufacturers, enabling them to design and test a device and ensure product quality. Due to the extended range of sounds this application can generate, it is advisable that you make sure the speakers or headphones are set to a low volume, so as to avoid equipment or hearing damage.
