    This thing is awesome for testing response of cabs, and your ears. I can hear up to about 19kHz. I either lost the upper thousand, or my earphones just don't go up that high. Or it might be both. I can still actually hear 20Hz, which is an awesome sound. This thing does pink, white, sine, square, sawtooth, everything. You can do sweeps and multi-tones. It's great.

    Here's a tip. If you want to run through some spaekers but don't want to take a PC and internet connection with you, burn some tones onto a CD.

    this thing exports to WAV, so, burning to a cd is a piece of cake. It is great if you can take your PC(i have a laptop) to test speakers. I found that the lowest sine wave I can hear is well below 20Hz. like about 10 or so. But I am not sure if that is hearing, or feeling. But anyways, it is great for find lower response range of speakers. My laptop speakers don't go higher than 100Hz.

    no, just double click on where it says "sine 1 fequency" it will allow you to change it.

    At 20Hz, you're probably just hearing the speaker shaking around trying to reproduce it. I'm not saying you can't hear it but not a lot of speakers can't accurately reproduce it. Keep the volume down or you could damage something.

    i have some earphones that go down to 10 Hz. i do keep a head on the volume, though. But I thought it was high frequencies that can damage your hearing faster.

    Windows only.
     
  10. I use to have that program. I must download it again. It is very handy. I dubbed some tones off onto tape as well. Good for alignment. ;)

    :D:D
