Default Test tones

Is there a cd that I can buy with test tones that before each tone or after, the frequency is said. I have songs that have 100hz, 90hz, all the way down to 10hz, but is there something with frequencies in the thousands? Or did someone make one?

Is there a easy way to make one?

Thanks,

Josh

what is Usenet?

what I found was a p2p file sharing, I'm guessing thats what you are talking about?

Is there anyway you could send me the file? Or is there a different name where I can search orhter file sharing programs for the song?

thanks,

Josh

Have you considered making your own CD?

A freeware sine wave generator is available at www.satsignal.net. You can make your files from that, (with a little cable).

Also, you really should test the frequency response of your sound card-very easy and quick to do using RightMark freeware. Even a great sound card can have bad frequency response if it was not installed well. Use RightMark and know for sure.
audio.rightmark.org

You will need a stereo 1/8" to 1/8", (walkman-to-walkman), plug. Available Radio Shack or most anywhere for two or three bucks.

Might be fun.

the sine wave generator site is not working, I'm gonna do some searches and see if I can download a different one. I have an Extigy, and i understand a lot of the sound card software doesnt work with extigy.

Thanks again, but is there anything else out there?

Here's one. Shareware, used to be freeware. But still useful to make a CD, or for use for a couple of weeks.

There is also WinISD, which is also a nfity box calculation program as well. Freeware. I don't inow about WinISD Pro, but the simple WinISD freeware has a signal generator. Just click "Uitilities", then "signal generator".

http://www.linearteam.dk/

You can make each tone you record a different cut on your CD, so track1 = 10 Hz, track2 = 15 Hz, etc.

I'v had WinISD for a few years now but I never knew it had a signal generator. And personally, dont download the pro, it had a lot of errors especially with inputting speakers parameters, but they might have fixed it now.

Thanks for NCH,

So can I just hook up my extigy to my amp and play some of the test tones and that way I can see where I should cross my speakers over? and all that?

Is that the best way?

and thanks again, That software is really easy and works well, just they way I like it
