    The Ultimate Test: 440 Hz vs 432 Hz
    Ryan Franklin


    Www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVoVr9UwOQM



    R/T: 3:47

    Published on Dec 26, 2013
    There's been a debate floating around about whether instruments sound better tuned to 440 Hz or 432 Hz. While 440 is the standard tuning (and what the vast majority of songs today are tuned to) there are arguments that 432 is a better, fuller, more natural tuning. There are even extreme theories that 432 has healing properties and todays mainstream 440 usage came about from the Nazis, Illuminati, etc. because it agitates people and causes them to be aggressive.

    This video allows you to test yourself to see if you like 440 Hz or 432 Hz better. You won't know which sample is which. Listen to each and see if you like one better than the other or if one feels better to you than the other and draw your own conclusions.


    Key Change: A lot of people come into this video with their mind already made up on whether they prefer 440 Hz or 432 Hz. When two samples are played in the same key, it's really easy to tell which is which because the lower sample will always be 432 and higher sample will always be 440. When people know which sample is which, they will often (whether consciously, or subconsciously) select the sample they "know" they prefer. In this video, I want to challenge any preconceived notions you might have. I changed keys to make it difficult to decipher which sample was 440 and which was 432. If you can't tell which frequency is which, my hope is you will be able to truly decide which one you prefer.

    Below is an article on 440 Hz vs 432 Hz.

    Also, none of the samples were digitally transposed. Every sample you hear is a retuned guitar (see my video: How to Tune Your Guitar to 432Hz).

    444 Hz to kill cancer cells
    Sensui Muraki

    Published on Jul 17, 2015
    In 1982, French composer Fabien Maman and Helene Grimal, a biologist at the National French Science Research Center, achieved amazing results from a joint study.

    They found that when healthy cells and uterine cancer cells placed in a petri dish were exposed to sound waves, the healthy cells did not change at all while the cancer cells changed in appearance. They began to shrink at sounds of 200 Hz, and as the frequency increased, the cells became round, and their color changed from red to pink. Surprisingly, when the sound frequency reached levels of 400 to 480 Hz, the cancer cells instead expanded and eventually burst.

    This sine wave frequency from 400 to 480 Hz would prove to be a kind of miracle frequency that kills and disintegrates cancer cells without harming normal cells.

    Specifically, the 444 Hz frequency is one of the “Solfeggio frequencies” capable of healing the body and mind.

    Now, there is a real chance that if this sound is applied directly to a cancerous area for a long period of time, the cancer cells will die and the disease cured.

    Loud volume increases this effect, but treatment is often administered with headphones placed directly to the affected area in consideration of surrounding patients.

    It is said that many cancer cells die after twenty minutes of applied radiation.

    Additionally, if you radiate drinking water with this frequency and drink a liter of it every day for 100 days or more, the healing effects will appear earlier.

    Besides mineral water, coffee or juice may also be vibrated to achieve this effect, but tea should be avoided because it cools the body. Cancer cell metabolism slows as the body warms and oppositely becomes more active as the body cools.

    Treatment and vibration water can be made not only with a personal computer but also using an iPad.

    It is this two-pronged approach of applying the frequency directly to the cancer-afflicted area to destroy cancer cells and flushing them out with vibration water that has the potential to cure cancer. Even those without cancer should do this once as a preventative measure.

    When tuning the reference frequency A from 440 Hz to 444 Hz, the music sounds less distorted and more elegant.

    Although this may not be related, it is nonetheless true that chords tuned to 444 Hz heal the mind and the body, whereas chords tuned to 440 Hz oppositely disrupt them.

    Europe’s top class orchestra is tuned to a frequency close to 444 Hz (around 442 Hz). Bathed body and soul in this pleasant chord, these master conductors are still waving their batons around well into their old age.

    On the other hand, there are many musicians who have fallen ill and left the world. Tragedy both mental and physical has befallen many musicians not only in the classical but also the jazz and the rock worlds as well.

    They may well be victims of the devil’s 440 Hz chord (dischord?).

    Frequency Chart – The Most Important Audio Frequency Ranges
    July 31, 2013
    Paschalis

    frequency chart
    The “perfect” human ear can hear frequencies ranging from 20Hz to 20.000Hz (or 20KiloHz/Khz) according to the official frequency chart.

    The average hearing range of the human ear though can hear from 50Hz to 16Khz.

    The lower the Hz the bassier the sound. The higher the Hz the higher/brighter the sound.

    We can easily say that the more we grow old the less high frequencies we’ll hear – usually from 18Khz to 15Khz – but we can hear the mids no matter our age.

    The above are not a problem though cause music important frequencies can be found around 50Hz and 16Khz, so even if you are old and “lost” some frequencies don’t worry, it’s never too late to start mixing!

    Also, open a new tab to check out my latest lessons and tutorials to improve your mixes!

    Just share this post to download a printable PDF of this post
    for you to keep forever!

    The Frequency Chart

    I broke down the frequencies into 6 main frequency ranges.

    This way it will be easier for you to practice and remember the frequencies. I am positive that this list will improve your mixing skills a lot ��

    Let’s start!

    0 – 60Hz (Sub-Bass)

    0 – 35Hz: You can remove it completely. You won’t find any musical information here. There’s an “energy” that you can feel and will make your mixes sound dull and muddy, plus it will lose it’s clarity. This kind of energy is really bad for your mix.

    35 – 60Hz: You can still feel the energy rather than hearing it. Around 50 to 80Hz you can find the wonderful energy that “hits you in the chest”. This is the exact feel we have when we go to concerts and we feel the bass hitting our chest. It’s an extremely important frequency range especially for Dubstep, Hip Hop, Drum & Bass etc… Since this sound is so sweet it’s really easy to overdo it so please keep your ears open and mix correctly or you’ll end up with the above drawbacks (muddy sound and no clarity).

    60Hz – 250Hz (Bass or Main Bass)

    The enhancement of these frequencies can make the sound “fuller” and “bigger”. On the contrary, cutting these frequencies will make the sound “thin”.

    Depending on the sound, cutting these frequencies will also reduce the “muddiness”. Every project/sound is recorded differently so you’ve also got to treat it differently.

    60 – 120Hz: Fundamental frequencies for the kick bass and the bass guitar.

    120Hz – 350Hz – “Really Heavy Area”

    That’s really the heaviest frequency area. Almost every single instrument has some frequencies in there.

    Try to cut as many frequencies as possible from instruments that don’t really benefit from these frequencies. And I don’t mean to cut lots of dbs but just a couple of dbs would do the trick.

    250Hz – 2Khz (Low Mids)

    Here you’ll find the fundamental frequencies of the most instruments.

    By boosting these frequencies you’ll make the sound fuller but if you overdo it you will cause ear fatigue to the listener.

    The sound hurts the ear and you have a strange sense like”feeling the sound to your stomach”.

    2KHz – 8Khz (High Mids)

    2 – 4Khz: Frequencies that help vocals and instruments to be more noticeable. You can achieve the same thing by cutting the same frequency range from different tracks than the one you’re trying to make it more noticeable.

    4 – 6Khz: Clarity. I should also mention that by boosting these frequencies the sound seems that it’s closer you and by cutting them it seems to be afar.

    8Khz – 20Khz

    8 – 12Khz: Frequencies dominated by the cymbals.

    8 – 16Khz: Clarity and sibilance. It’s really important to record properly without “Sh’s” in the vocals so can you boost for clarity in case you need it, without worrying about the sibilance.

    12 – 20Khz: “Air”. It gives the sense of air and openness in the mix.

    Maybe music is the same since Telemann, but our perceptions of music have changed with the rise of "cultural appropriation?"

    Yunno. Cultural appropriation by the less musical but more rhythmic?

    Great article total 6 pages

    Snip: Babylon pg 4

    In ancient Babylon, there is the example of instruments used to signal the people to worship the golden image. "That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of music, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up." Daniel 3:5. It seems reasonable to think that the instruments served more of a purpose than just a signal. Mrs. White says, "The appointed day came, and at the sound of entrancing music the vast company 'fell down and worshiped the golden image.'" Christ Triumphant, 177- Speaking further of this, she says, "Force is the last resort of every false religion. At first it tries attraction, as the king of Babylon tried the power of music and outward show." "Ellen G. White Comments," Seventh-day Adventist Bible Commentary, vol. 7,976.

    "The ancients knew how to use music to elicit a mystical experience. . .. Everything remains on the level of the emotions and the nervous system. Even today, thanks to the media, we can witness the effect of music on the masses. Singers and musicians exercise tremendous power over crowds of adoring fans. We no longer need lyrics or a coherent message to convince others. The phenomenon has even invaded religious communities. In reaction to the cerebral frigidity of traditional services, certain denominations have fallen into the other extreme. They spoon-feed and wash down the message by the continuous purring of background music. Believers, transported by the spirit, shout and cry out in delirious enthusiasm.

    Such an approach considers reflection unnecessary and outdated. It only smiles at absolute judgments. This episode in the book of Daniel warns us against a strictly emotional religion. Emotions can be a part of the religious experience only when united with reflection and thought. Adoration must involve the whole being, and to neglect one aspect could lead to bowing before an idol. Likewise, in the plain of Dura, the preachers of Babel do not waste time in dry demonstrations or arguments. Music suffices to trigger adoration, and its adherents live strictly in the present. Several times the passage explicitly stresses the dimension of the present." Jaccques B. Doukhan, Secrets of Daniel, Review and Herald Publishing, Hagerstown, MD, 2000, 48, 49.

    But did notice in 30 years of rap history how the downfall of the black race accelerated.

    Most "colored" Boomers and Nam draftees into the army used to have fathers at home and everyone of them were in the church on Weds and Sunday with their grandmothers
    Churches were their natural homes

    Now with them embracing 2 generations of rap, and the Streets of Chicago is the home, there are no fathers, and music has gone from Superfly and MoTown to total derogatory demonic noise pollution. They stay godless fatherless jobless and dangerous.

    August 8 1988
    Gangsta rap hits the mainstream with the release of N.W.A’s Straight Outta Compton

    As of 1988, the top-selling hip hop albums of all time were Run D.M.C.’s Raising Hell and the Beastie Boys’ License to Ill, both released in 1987 and both selling millions without ruffling many feathers. In June 1988, Public Enemy released It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back, an album that broke new ground both musically and lyrically with its richly layered, aggressive sound and its angry, politically conscious content. Yet even Public Enemy were dwarfed commercially by DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, whose kid-friendly single “Parents Just Don’t Understand” and album He’s the DJ, I’m The Rapper were both Top 5 pop hits that same summer. The group that would truly revolutionize hip hop was N.W.A—”Niggaz With Attitude” —whose debut album, Straight Outta Compton, was released on this day in 1988.


    The release of Straight Outta Compton marks a critical turning point in the history of hip hop, which was a booming global phenomenon in 1988 but still hadn’t strayed far from its roots as party music. Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five had established hip hop’s potential for social commentary with their epic single “The Message” in 1983, but Straight Outta Compton offered something far less measured and polite than one usually associates with the word “commentary.” The album’s first three tracks alone— “Straight Outta Compton,” “**** Tha Police” and “Gangsta Gangsta”—may have contained more explicit language and incendiary subject matter than every previous hip hop record combined, and it contained nothing like a didactic “message.” It may not have been the first recorded example of Gangsta rap—Schooly D and Ice-T mined similar territory somewhat earlier—but Straight Outta Compton is the album that introduced it to the mainstream.

    What is remarkable is that the album reached the mainstream at all. Far too controversial and explicit for commercial radio or MTV, Straight Outta Compton was shut out from the traditional route to commercial success. Yet it would eventually be certified triple Platinum, helped in part by a counterproductive effort at suppression in the form of an official letter from the Federal Bureau of Investigation warning N.W.A and their label, Priority Records, that “Advocating violence and assault is wrong….Music plays a significant role in society and I wanted you to to be aware of the FBI’s position relative [“**** Tha Police”] and its message.”

    N.W.A broke up in several stages between 1989 and 1992, releasing two more hit albums along the way: 100 Miles and Runnin’ (1990) and Efil4zaggin (Niggaz4Life) (1991). Former members Dr. Dre and Ice Cube would both go on to have hugely successful careers in popular music, while founding member Easy E would die of AIDS in 1995, by which time Gangsta rap—the sub-genre he’d helped to create—was the dominant style in the world of hip hop.

    If culture is downstream from race.............then that explains why I'll never find hip hop or rap worth listening to.

    computer drum tracks, ebonic jabber and simple repetitive melodic structure...........art expression for the low IQ listener.........

    Jimi Hendrix tuned to 311hz instead of 330hz as he had been assured that it would cause panties to drop. SRV and Slash tune this way as well, so it must be true bs.

    I've been an audiophile and speaker builder my whole life. Who ever wrote this part is so wrong. "no musical information and lose it's clarity" is non-sense. Music contains 10 octaves from 20hz to 20khz. Removing 20-35hz is almost a full octave gone. This low bass is the foundation of music. Organ, Harp, Tuba, Bassoon and even Piano do go that low but more importantly while a lot of other instruments fundamental frequencies is higher they contain harmonics that low which is part of the music.

    Yes more felt than heard but it's part of the music and important in any high end or audiophile system. Removing it make systems sound thin. Again a whole octave is missing.

    While it's true many speakers can't reproduce that very low bass once you hear a high end system that does one wouldn't want to go back. There is MUCH energy down there that low.

    I presume they'd have to re-engineer every acoustic instrument on the planet with fixed pitched notes.

    A440 or A4 (also known as the Stuttgart pitch), which has a frequency of 440 Hz, is the musical note of A above middle C and serves as a general tuning standard for musical pitch.

    The International Organization for Standardization classifies it as ISO 16. Before standardization on 440 Hz, other frequencies were standardized upon. Although not universally accepted, it serves as the audio frequency reference to calibrate acoustic equipment and to tune pianos, violins, and other musical instruments.

    History and use
    Before standardization on 440 Hz, many countries and organizations followed the French standard since the 1860s of 435 Hz, which had also been the Austrian government's 1885 recommendation. Johann Heinrich Scheibler recommended A440 as a standard in 1834 after inventing the "tonometer" to measure pitch, and it was approved by the German Natural History Society the same year.

    The American music industry reached an informal standard of 440 Hz in 1926, and some began using it in instrument manufacturing.

    In 1936 the American Standards Association recommended that the A above middle C be tuned to 440 Hz.[4] This standard was taken up by the International Organization for Standardization in 1955 (reaffirmed by them in 1975) as ISO 16.

    It is designated A4 in scientific pitch notation because it occurs in the octave that starts with the fourth C key on a standard 88-key piano keyboard. On MIDI, it is note 69.

    I agree with your comments. I have a pair of Infinity Quantum 2's. They go so low, it gives my wife A-fib almost immediately at high volumes. She has noticed the same feeling in the "pit" at concerts, also.

    We are now careful to not go too close.

    Yes - it's difficult and expensive to build / design speakers or subwoofers that go that low so many people just don't know what's missing. Also I "think" where the writer in that article got their info concerning low bass being "muddy or lacking clarity" is because of the vast number of "cheap" subwoofers on the market with a lot of distortion. It is difficult to reproduce that low energy and many (especially home theater) subwoofers don't do the job properly.

    Dennis, this is nothing all that new. Several years ago, I listened to a radio program that was discussing this very subject, with an expert explaining the difference of the frequencies, and the changes in them. The program was "The Power Hour."

    What Is the LRAD Sound Cannon?

    Roberto Baldwin8/14/14 11:40am

    Protests in Ferguson, Missouri have reached a terrifying fever pitch, and the ludicrously armed Ferguson Police Department is bringing all its crowd-control weapons to bear, tear gas, stun grenades, rubber bullets, you name it. One of the more controversial of those is the LRAD Sound Cannon. So what's the harm in a little noise? Well, a lot, actually.

    The LRAD Sound Cannon is an acoustic weapon and communication device…

    Developed by the LRAD corporation to broadcast messages and pain-inducing "deterrent" tones over long distances, LRAD devices come in various iterations that produce varying degrees of sound. They can be mounted to a vehicle or handheld. The device produces a sound that can be directed in a beam up to 30-degree wide, and the military-grade LRAD 2000X can transmit voice commands at up to 162dB up to 5.5 miles away.

    ...that blasts "non-lethal" sound waves...

    The LRAD corporation says that anyone within a 100 meters of the device's sound path will experience extreme pain. The version generally utilized by police department (the LRAD 500X) is designed to communicate at up to 2000 meters during ideal conditions. In a typical outdoor environment, the device can be heard for 650 meters. The 500x is also capable of short bursts of directed sound that cause severe headaches in anyone within a 300-meter range. Anyone within 15 meters of the device's audio path can experience permanent hearing loss. LRAD claims the device is not a weapon, but a "directed-sound communication device."

    ...and keep birds from hitting planes...

    LRAD systems are deployed at airports to sonically deter birds from residing in the paths of aircrafts. The bio-acoustic deterrent helps minimize bird strikes like the one that caused the ditching of Flight 1549 in the Hudson river. In this context, the LRAD broadcasts tones and predator calls that frighten birds away.

    ...but has also been used against activists...

    The LRAD device has been used on several occasions against activists in the US. The first documented use was in Pittsburgh during the G20 summit in 2009. The Pittsburgh police used it again following the Superbowl in 2011. The LRAD has reportedly been used against Occupy protestors in Oakland and recently against Occupy Wall Street protestors in Zuccotti Park.


    ...and has potentially long-term side effects.

    Use of the device has come under fire because of the potential for permanent hearing loss. Human discomfort starts when a sound hits 120dB, well below the LRAD's threshold. Permanent hearing loss begins at 130dB, and if the device is turned up to 140dB, anyone within its path would not only suffer hearing loss, they could potentially lose their balance and be unable to move out of the path of the audio. The device is also entirely operator dependent, which could lead to serious ramifications if the officer in charge doesn't have sufficient training.

    If you've encountered the LRAD Sound Cannon, please drop your experience in the comments below.

    Sonic weapon

    A Long-Range Acoustic Device (LRAD) in use on the USS Blue Ridge
    Sonic and ultrasonic weapons (USW) are weapons of various types that use sound to injure, incapacitate, or kill an opponent. Some sonic weapons are currently in limited use or in research and development by military and police forces. Some of these weapons have been described as sonic bullets, sonic grenades, sonic mines, or sonic cannons. Some make a focused beam of sound or ultrasound; some make an area field of sound.

    Use and deployment Edit


    An NYPD officer stands ready with the LRAD 500X at an Occupy Wall Street protest on November 17, 2011 near the city hall
    Extremely high-power sound waves can disrupt or destroy the eardrums of a target and cause severe pain or disorientation. This is usually sufficient to incapacitate a person. Less powerful sound waves can cause humans to experience nausea or discomfort. The use of these frequencies to incapacitate persons has occurred both in anti-citizen special operation and crowd control settings.

    The possibility of a device that produces frequency that causes vibration of the eyeballs—and therefore distortion of vision—was suggested by paranormal researcher Vic Tandy[1][2] in the 1990s while attempting to demystify a "haunting" in his laboratory in Coventry. This "spook" was characterised by a feeling of unease and vague glimpses of a grey apparition. Some detective work implicated a newly installed extractor fan that, Tandy found, was generating infrasound of 18.9 Hz, 0.3 Hz, and 9 Hz.

    A long-range acoustic device has been used by the crew of the cruise ship Seabourn Spirit to deter pirates who chased and attacked the ship.[3] More commonly this device and others of similar design have been used to disperse protesters and rioters in crowd control efforts. A similar system is called a "magnetic acoustic device" "The mosquito".[4] 'Mobile' sonic devices have been used in the United Kingdom to deter teenagers from lingering around shops in target areas. The device works by emitting an ultra-high frequency blast (around 19–20 kHz) that teenagers or people under approximately 20 are susceptible to and find uncomfortable. Age-related hearing loss apparently prevents the ultra-high pitch sound from causing a nuisance to those in their late twenties and above, though this is wholly dependent on a young person's past exposure to high sound pressure levels.

    High-amplitude sound of a specific pattern at a frequency close to the sensitivity peak of human hearing (2–3 kHz) is used as a burglar deterrent.[5]

    Some police forces have used sound cannons against protesters, for example during the 2009 G20 Pittsburgh summit[6], the 2014 Ferguson unrest[7], the 2016 Dakota Access Pipeline protest in North Dakota[8], among others.

    It has been reported that "sonic attacks" may have taken place in Cuba in 2016 and 2017, leading to health problems, including hearing loss, in US and Canadian government employees at the US and Canadian embassies in Havana.[9] Some events as reported would seem to violate the laws of physics,[10] and it has been suggested that they are in fact an example of mass psychogenic illness.[11] Cuban investigators have reportedly dismissed claims that sonic weapons have been used against American diplomats, describing them as "science fiction".[12] The US issued an alert to its employees in China after it learned of a possible "sonic attack" on a US citizen working there. The employee complained of symptoms from late 2017 through April 2018 [13], then returned to the US and was examined by a doctor who said the person had suffered a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI). The US diplomat likened it to the incident which they say happened in Cuba.[14] In early June, 2018 several employees were evacuated from their work in the U.S. Consulate offices in China and sent back to Pennsylvania for testing and diagnosis after sharing similar concerns.[15]

    Research Edit

    See also: United States Department of Defense policy on non-lethal weapons
    Studies have found that exposure to high intensity ultrasound at frequencies from 700 kHz to 3.6 MHz can cause lung and intestinal damage in mice. Heart rate patterns following vibroacoustic stimulation has resulted in serious negative consequences such as atrial flutter and bradycardia.[16][17]

    The extra-aural (unrelated to hearing) bioeffects on various internal organs and the central nervous system included auditory shifts, vibrotactile sensitivity change, muscle contraction, cardiovascular function change, central nervous system effects, vestibular (inner ear) effects, and chest wall/lung tissue effects. Researchers found that low frequency sonar exposure could result in significant cavitations, hypothermia, and tissue shearing. No follow up experiments were recommended. Tests performed on mice show the threshold for both lung and liver damage occurs at about 184 dB. Damage increases rapidly as intensity is increased.[citation needed] The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) has stated that there have been no proven biological effects associated with an unfocused sound beam with intensities below 100 mW/cm² SPTA or focused sound beams below an intensity level of 1 mW/cm² SPTA.[18]

    Noise-induced neurologic disturbances in scuba divers exposed to continuous low frequency tones for durations longer than 15 minutes has involved in some cases the development of immediate and long-term problems affecting brain tissue. The symptoms resembled those of individuals who had suffered minor head injuries. One theory for a causal mechanism is that the prolonged sound exposure resulted in enough mechanical strain to brain tissue to induce an encephalopathy. Divers and aquatic mammals may also suffer lung and sinus injuries from high intensity, low frequency sound. This is due to the ease with which low frequency sound passes from water into a body, but not into any pockets of gas in the body, which reflect the sound due to mismatched acoustic impedance.[19]

    There was a one hour show based on this type of thing on the Quest channel the other night.


    Another demo they did in the show is they had people stand inside the stones of Stonehenge with candle flames and then other people with drums and other instruments played a certain kind of music and when they did it in sync it caused the flames to flutter like strobe lights. They talked about how the music and the flame strobes could put people into a trance like state.

    I had read the newest navy sonar was causing whales to commit suicide rather listen

    ETA add

    I had a pair of Wharfdales that would go that low, you just had to be SURE you were driivng them with a CLEAN and I mean a *CL*E*A*N* amp, or you would tear the cones right out of them.

    didn't help that my brother thought it was cool to blow matches out with them.


    My age related (and misspent yute) hearing degradation is above 8-9kHz and really tails off around 12. So my hearing aides fix that. Unless I'm talking to a music or audio freak, when I say I have high loss they go "Oh, you mean the flutes like in Tull?" and then I getr to edjumakate them. Highs like a cymbal tailing off, or like the crash sound from them. the hiss is highs. flutes are mids.

    My minister of music goes, "Sure. I stroke my stich down my hanging chimes you lose the top 3-4. Or if I'm using the brushes on the snares you may or may not hear them." HE gets it.

    Moral of the story? go back to 21, and use ear protection for mahavishnu's Orchestra, and the Kinks, And white Trash, and traffic. Oh and don't EVER say "Oh darn I left my earpro home. I'll just do without JUST THIS TIME!?"

    The benefits of software based teenager repellent

    Problem: You have security issues with children or teenagers committing acts of anti-social behavior, creating noise disturbances or loitering with or without intent to do harm. You want them to go away or stop their behaviour but you do not wish to risk confronting them directly.

    Solution: Teen Away uses your computer as a way of generating unpleasant high frequency sounds that only children / teenagers can hear. Adults (anyone over approx >25 years of age) will generally be unaware of the sound. You run the software and generate a sound that they will want to get away from.

    How?: The limit of adult hearing is approx 13,000 Hz, the limit of child / teenager hearing can extend to 20,000 Hz+. This means that any sound between 13,000 Hz and 20,000 Hz will be inaudible to most adults and audible to most children / teenagers. Most modern sound cards and multimedia speakers can easily generate high frequency "sonic" sound in this range. Speakers that contain a tweeter element can often even play sounds up to 40,000 Hz. (Bat sonar operates in the region of 40,000 Hz to 100,000 Hz so there is no impact on bat-sonar, mosquitoes are said to be repelled by sound in the range of 15,000 - 240,000 Hz so the program may also keep mosquitoes away without needing ultrasonic electronic circuits).

    How to use Teen Away in detail

    (1) If you wish, perhaps first verify that you have a modern sound card and reasonably good speakers. The frequency ranges may be contained in your system's manual. For example the most basic Sound Blaster sound card has a range of 10,000 Hz to 40,000 Hz "Frequency Response at -3 dBr = 10 Hz to 40 kHz". So 12,000 Hz to 22,000 Hz is well within its capabilities - the same is true of most modern sound cards. We have tested Teen Away with 5 year old desktop systems through to very basic Netbooks using internal speakers and have yet to find a system that cannot generate sound in the range of 12,000 Hz to 22,000 Hz.

    WTF?

    Setting my 432Hz EQ band down to -192dB right NOW. Thanks for the warning.

    ETA: I set the Q to .2 as well. Should widen the band just to be safe.

    Here’s Why You Should Consider Converting Your Music To A=432 Hz

    By Elina St-OngeDecember 21, 2013
    “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”

    – Nikola Tesla

    “What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.”

    – Albert Einstein

    Tesla said it. Einstein agreed. Science proved it. It is a known fact that everything — including our own bodies — is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies. That being said, it seems logical to wonder, can sound frequencies affect us? It would appear that this is the case. Frequencies affect frequencies, much like mixing ingredients with other ingredients affects the overall flavour of a meal. The way frequencies affect the physical world has been demonstrated through various experiments, such as the science of Cymatics and water memory.

    Cymatics illustrate that when sound frequencies move through a particular medium, such as water, air, or sand, they directly alter the vibration of matter. Below are pictures demonstrating how particles adjust to different frequencies. (Click here to watch a video demonstrating the patterns of sound frequencies.)

    Cymatics

    Water memory also illustrates how our own intentions may even alter the material world. This has been demonstrated by Dr. Masaru Emoto, who has performed studies showing how simple intentions through sound, emotions, and thoughts can dramatically shape the way water crystallizes. 




    Water Memory

    We all hold a certain vibrational frequency, and our bodies are estimated to be about 70% water. Given the above experiments, it stands to reason that musical frequencies could also alter our own vibrational state. Every expression through sound, emotion, or thought holds a specific frequency that influences everything around it — much like a single drop of water can create a larger ripple effect in a large body of water.

    Music Frequency

    With this concept in mind, let us bring our attention to the frequency of the music we listen to. Most music worldwide has been tuned to A=440 Hz since the International Standards Organization (ISO) promoted it in 1953. However, when looking at the vibratory nature of the universe, it’s possible that this pitch is disharmonious with the natural resonance of nature and may generate negative effects on human behaviour and consciousness.

    Some theories (although unproven) even suggest that the Nazi regime had been in favour of adopting this pitch as standard after conducting scientific research to determine which range of frequencies best induce fear and aggression. Whether or not the conspiracy is factual, interesting studies have pointed toward the benefits of tuning music to A=432 Hz instead.

    Mathematics of the Universe

    432 Hz is said to be mathematically consistent with the patterns of the universe. It is said that 432 Hz vibrates with the universe’s golden mean, Phi, and unifies the properties of light, time, space, matter, gravity, and magnetism with biology, the DNA code, and consciousness. When our atoms and DNA start to resonate in harmony with the spiralling pattern of nature, our sense of connection to nature is said to be magnified. The number 432 is also reflected in ratios of the sun, Earth, and moon, as well as the procession of the equinoxes, the Great Pyramid of Egypt, Stonehenge, and the Sri Yantra, among many other sacred sites.

    “From my own observations, some of the harmonic overtone partials of A=432hz 12T5 appear to line up to natural patterns and also the resonance of solitons. Solitons need a specific range to form into the realm of density and span from the micro to the macro cosmos. Solitons are not only found in water mechanics, but also in the ion-acoustic breath between electrons and protons.”

    – Brian T. Collins

    432 Hz vs. 440 Hzcolor sound chartColour Spectrum Resonance

    Another interesting factor to consider is that A=432 Hz tuning correlates with the colour spectrum and chakra system, while A=440 Hz tuning does not.

    The Solar Spectrum and the Cosmic Keyboard

    “All of the frequencies in the spectrum are related in octaves, from gamma rays to subharmonics. These colors and notes are also related to our Chakras and other important energy centers. If we are to understand that… Chakras are connected to the Seven Rays of the Solar Spectrum, then the notes and frequencies we use for the same should be the same. A432 Hz is the tuning of the Cosmic Keyboard or Cosmic Pitchfork, as opposed to the A440 Hz modern ‘standard.’ It places C# at 136.10 Hz ‘Om,’ which is the main note of the Sitar in classical Indian music and the pitch of the chants of the Tibetan monks, who tell us, ‘It comes from nature.’ “

    – Dameon Keller

    Exploring the Difference

    Let’s explore the experiential difference between A=440 Hz and A=432 Hz. Music lovers and musicians have noticed that music tuned in A=432 Hz is not only more beautiful and harmonious to the ears, but it also induces a more inward experience that is felt inside the body, at the spine and heart. Music tuned in A=440 Hz offered a more outward and mental experience, and was felt at the side of the head and then projected outwards. Audiophiles have also stated that A=432 Hz music seems to be non-local and can fill an entire room, whereas A=440 Hz can be perceived as directional or linear in sound propagation.

    “The ancients tuned their instruments at an A of 432 Hz instead of 440 Hz – and for a good reason. There are plenty of music examples on the internet that you can listen to, in order to establish the difference for yourself. Attuning the instrument to 432 Hz results in a more relaxing sound, while 440 Hz slightly tenses up to body. This is because 440 Hz is out of tune with both macrocosmos and microcosmos. 432 Hz on the contrary is in tune. To give an example of how this is manifested microcosmically: our breath (0,3 Hz) and our pulse (1,2 Hz) relate to the frequency of the lower octave of an A of 432 Hz (108 Hz) as 1:360 and 1:90.”

    – innergarden.org

    “The overall sound difference was noticeable, the 432 version sounding warmer, clearer and instantly sounded more listenable but the 440 version felt tighter, with more aggressive energy.”

    – Anonymous guitarist




    The video below was created by someone with no opinion on whether A=432 Hz or A=440 Hz is better. Therefore, the way both versions of the melody is played is unbiased. It is up to us to tune in and decide which one feels more harmonious to us!




    Here’s another example:
    David Helpling – Sticks and Stones in 440 hz: http://youtu.be/PewsS9Y9pVo
    David Helpling – Sticks and Stones in 432 hz: http://youtu.be/w8KEVikJMck

    Personal Thoughts

    I personally have enjoyed many bands, artists, and styles of music even though they were tuning in A=440 Hz. However, after comparing a few songs in both A=432 Hz and A=440 Hz, I can say I definitely feel and hear the difference. I wouldn’t say that my experience of 440 Hz music has turned me into an aggressive person, but I can understand how an entire population being exposed to music that is more mind-directed as opposed to heart-directed — not to mention all of the materialistic and ego-driven lyrics in most popular music — is a perfect combination to maintain a more discordant frequency and state of consciousness within humanity. This is, of course, simply my own opinion.

    “Music based on C=128hz (C note in concert A=432hz) will support humanity on its way towards spiritual freedom. The inner ear of the human being is built on C=128 hz.”

    – Rudolph Steiner

    I cannot state with complete certainty that every idea suggested in this article is 100% accurate, nor am I an expert on the subject. I simply gathered interesting information from others who researched this issue more deeply. For this reason, if we are looking for scientific validation for these claims, I suggest that we each do our own research into the matter with an open yet discerning mind. Perhaps more research on this topic will be done in the near future that helps explain the phenomenon.

    I believe we all possess intuition and the ability to observe without judgment, which can be more useful than resorting to ridicule when exposed to information that has not yet been accepted by the scientific community. It is therefore up to us to resist the urge to jump to conclusions and instead EXPERIENCE the difference between A=440 Hz and A=432 Hz. To do so, we need to listen with our entire body and a neutral awareness as opposed to with our mental ideas, judgments, and preconceptions. Let me know which frequency resonates more with you!
