Tune caustic

How hard would it be to make caustic globally tunable? For example use the 8 bit synth with 432hz, or something user defined instead of A= 440Hz

Impossible, or easy?

It's been asked before, and I

It's been asked before, and I don't see it happening.   What do you want a Global shift to .432kHz from .440kHz?  (a 1.8% shift?)   Doesn't make sense what you're asking here.

Jason is right. I have

Jason is right. I have explored this 432 hz tuning months ago. I also done pitch shifting the music to that range and pich lowering. It doesn't improve your track if your track sucks. 440 hz is the best for human hearing range. And its proven by science.
Stop fooling your mind with that and just make music.

Oh yeah, the certain frequencies that do things to your brain junk science thing..... is just that.  Junk science, that has infected the internet for decades....

Make music, and let that music relax your mind cool

Just for the sake of expanding the freedom of control and experimentation. If you are happy with limitations, good for you.

I just used 432 as example, it's not the important information.

I'm not looking to improve old tracks by shifting the tuning of something. That makes no sense. Your speculation on my motives are funny but not surprising.

I doubt this highly. The fact that microwaves can boil matter from the inside out is a pretty good demonstration at a very verbose level.

We live in a galaxy in a universe where we know absolutely nothing about our own origin, I really doubt we have the ability for junk science. The thing that always bothers me is how people can blindly follow something without testing it themselves, who is to say certain frequencies don't effect some but not others, they never tested me? :)

Being devils advocate here.

OP, technically, there is no way exposed to change the 440hz = A in the oscillators.

If you google 'detune caustic

If you google 'detune caustic baroque', you get a hit. It's a feature request, so access denied. Someone here wanted to do just this to use Caustic with a baroque ensemble. A valid user case if ever there was one. I can't confirm this, but I'm pretty sure there's a secret number pad code to detune Caustic.

Yeah like I said, it's not

Yeah like I said, it's not "exposed" BUT! I will give you guys a candy for junk science's sake! The secret num pad...

8863000 + frequency.

So for standard tuning it's 8863440, for sacred geometry tuning it's 8863432.

Mike, I have experimented

Mike, I have experimented with sound here and there for 20 years. I'm interested in Cymatics, or the way sound can arrange physical matter. Not just grains of sand, but in our bodies. I hope one day to replicate the levitation and manipulation of small objects or water with sound waves at home! I often compose music in experimental ways, sometimes with alternative tunings, or arbitrary choices.on notes. This means I'm using hardware or other software. Just thought it would be fun to have my pocket phone able to do a fraction of this in those times where I'm on the tram or whatever.

Thanks Mike and Paulovski for the tip. I will try it out. Perhaps first with Some ancient Chinese tunings for testers.

I have no doubt about

I have no doubt about different frequencies affect our cells and such.

The part that starts to get called junk science is when you combine metaphysics or lack of a definable understanding of physics past what science can currently measure. Which just in the last 100 years, science has been able to measure atomically, before that, JUNK SCIENCE.

I remember when Rej add this ability so it is there.

Yesterday's daydreams are tomorrow's science for sure. Just like eye wateringly expensive laboratory audio equipment from yesteryear are now priced like a few bags of groceries. Take care.

I know that this does not fix

I know that this does not fix or solve the problem, but i you put your track into an instance of FL studio for PC ( i use the demo because im broke) you can pitch your song any way you like. Many other DAWS are capable of pitch shifting long samples.

Again, I acknowledge that this doesn't solve the problem. Its just something i'm sure many people have thought about.

Beware than de-tuning your song, when played or mixed with other songs for other projects or general listening on playlists, will not have a natural-sounding transition....
