  • free tone generators

    Are there any free tone generators available?

    I used to use NCH Swiftsound, but that now appears to be trial ware.

    Re: free tone generators

    I use the free version of Tone Gen on my Mac, but I have mostly switched to hardware-based generators.

    "It has been remarked that if one selects his own components, builds his own enclosure, and is convinced he has made a wise choice of design, then his own loudspeaker sounds better to him than does anyone else's loudspeaker. In this case, the frequency response of the loudspeaker seems to play only a minor part in forming a person's opinion."

        I use free Audacity. I found WinISD had a lot of distortion on high frequency sine waves.
        I was tired and got tired again so now I am Re tired.

          Add RoomEQ Wizard to the list of freeware that includes a tone generator function. Think it does both sine and square waves at a user determined frequency, along with various other sweeps. You'll need to register at HomeTheaterShack to download.

              +1 for RoomEQ. It also has instructions for calibrating your sound card -- which if you don't do, you have no idea about whether you're source is flat. Mine required some significant deviation from stock to generate flat signal. Also on that site there are downloadable low frequency stepped sines which you can burn to CD. I'd still like to find a good downloadable set of sines which extends to higher frequencies.

                Google "Bink Audio". There used to be a "test CD" online supplied as standalone .wav? files. About 40 or 50 files with sines, sweeps, & some esoteric (dangerous in the wrong hands! - complete with warnings) stuff.

                  I use VB Generator. Looks like they also now call it LF Generator. If you download the standalone version, it is a single .exe file. Nothing to install. Just double click and run it.

                    Thanks for the response everyone

                    That should give us enough to choose from.

                      There you go! Great free tone generators, been using them for years. Here is a free VST one for testing a PC based crossover, MDA tone:
