Tone Generator- Multiple uses

03/29/12  |  Posted by Keri Svoboda  |  Posted in Digital Canvas - Apps & Accessories

Create tunes with tones!  Tone Generator allows you to make  patterns (if you want) out of simple tones generated with Hz (Hertz Frequencies)!  What does this mean?  This means that you can not only test your hearing by adjusting the slider on the left, but also use that trick to create a text tone to avoid trouble from teachers who don't hear as well.  This application is not limited to one tone, however.  The Tone sequence option at the top of the app allows the user to input numbers in sequence with a certain Hz. A problem that I found with this app is that I cannot save progress from this application to work on at a later time.  Also, the smallest time that you can set a frequency is 1 second.  However, other practical applications, other than music are available.  For example, you can use this application to ward off angry mosquitoes at a low frequency (mosquitoes hate frequencies around 45-65 Hz).  You can also use this application as a dog whistle or just to play pranks on your friends and family. This is not a very useful application unless you get severe reactions to mosquitoes like I do.  I give this app a 2.5 out of 5 overall.  Its inability to create small beats with these frequencies really hurts this application, especially with the fact that you have to pay for it. There are many similarly named iPad applications, but Tone Generator_Pro by Michael Heinz is the only one that seems to have the ability to export your sounds and create music. Tone Generator Pro in iTunes - $.99
