Title: Tgen - Free software - Audio Functions generator (Windows)
Post by: CrisBonis on December 19, 2012, 02:23:21 PM
Hello, this is a 100 % freeware , the software is a functions generator, i have written this code for personal purposes (runs only on Windows @ Direct Sound)

I could see this being a useful piece of test software. 

Out of curiousity, how did you find SSGuitar though?

I got this error message when loading the program.  The program seemed to work alright though.

Hey. Looks like a nice app :)

Joe:

Delete the openal32.dll from the app directory, and check if you already have openAL installed, in which case deleting the openal dll should resolve the issue. Otherwise, try installing openAL (and still delete the openAL dll's from the dir). It's known to behave a bit dodgy sometimes when you have a different version installed in your system, but running another version dll.

Deleting that from the app directory made it work fine.

Are these freq ISO?  If so label as?

{Random thought, alternate window for musical note selection?}

The Custom wave is inspired!  Opens the door to all sorts of different waveforms, arbitrary, pre recorded, or software generated.  I'd suggest at least Audacity compatibility since that is also freeware.  {There may be better, but the .WAV format is easy to write.  Buried in a pile of old HDD's is a QBasic prog I wrote that generated .WAV files from whatever.}

Blue sky...

Have you thought of condensing the top level screen by using drop-down selections in each of the main windows?

Pan control, L, R, and Slider (& toggling L-R for each scan?).

ed2ad> Single sine/sq/saw/etc selection switch common to all non-co-incident functions (save interface space/complexity).

Start other software buttons/options, preset for resident mixer (to manage soundcard channels/levels), and e.g. Irfanview as a player, Audacity, whatever/user set?

I have stolen the frequency values from my analogic audio analyzer ....have you a ISO table ?

PAN and the slider settings..I still have to work on these...

It's a long time since I've seen a list, and it's proving hard to find one on line; but I fancied that it was a progression based on something like the "twelveth root of two", similar to resistors and musical notes, but the (only) table I've found pretty much matches your selections and therefore already seems to comply with ISO 266:1975.   :dbtu: {so you should flaunt it  :cheesy: }

MSG Multi Sig Gen v0.8

Unpacked okay
Tried to run and got "OpenAL32.dll not valid Windows image" again
Started anyway

Slight leading glitch after changing settings; e.g. a tiny bit of leading square after selecting off for sine, like an audio buffer isn't being flushed after de-selection.

Return to default settings button?

Record One second WAV (Save As, default named from the settings)?

File>Help screen didn't properly clear when closed, left residual on MSG panel.

HTH

Thanks,
MSG  i  have to rewrite from scratch, the Msg engine has serious problem over the 1500 Hz (frequency is not stable)...for now i have hard working to HQPlayer and TGEN... when i finished this DUO...get the TGEN engine to build the new MSG and write the code for implement yours HACKS  8|

You can generate tones with the Free/Open Source program Audacity, using the Generate menu.

I usually make one second's worth of a tone and then loop it by shift-clicking the play button. If the frequency is integral (which it almost always is), the loop is perfectly smooth.

There isn't a one-step way to generate mixtures of waveforms, but you can  just generate multiple tracks.
Title: Re: Tgen - Free software - Audio Functions generator (Windows)
Post by: Roly on January 23, 2013, 12:19:21 PM
Yup.   :tu:

For multiple tones there will be a point where all the waves again cross zero in the same direction.  This may result in a loop that is other than one second, but the important thing is that there be no step discontinuities in any of the waves.
Title: Re: Tgen - Free software - Audio Functions generator (Windows)
Post by: Kaz Kylheku on January 23, 2013, 03:52:24 PM
If the frequencies are integers, like 213 or 5193 cycles per second, then that means that each frequency has an even number of cycles in a one second interval.  In other words, each waveform has a period such that one second is a multiple of that period. Therefore, in a mixture of such tones, one second is a multiple of each of their periods, which makes it a  common multiple (and not necessarily the lowest common multiple). If we take a period that is a common multiple of the waveforms, and repeat that period, we get a function that is indistinguishable from a continuation of the original. Or, in other words, any phase shift of a signal by a multiple of one second is indistinguishable from the unshifted signal, if the signal contains only integral frequencies.
