Need an oscillator to generate VERY specific frequencies!

Post by bgelber » Thu Jul 10, 2014 9:41 pm

I've been scouring the internet for like two hours and haven't found what I want...the closest thing seems to've been the mdaTestTone vst/au, but for some stupid reason it's not showing up in my Plug-ins tab.
I need something that'll produce pure sine waves at very specific frequencies; I mean, AT LEAST three decimal places. 4+ would be best. Preferably free.
I know this has been mentioned in multiple forums; I just can't seem to get a satisfactory answer.

I know I could set up Operator & convert Hz to cents then use fine tune, but that's not precise enough. Also it's a pain in the ass.

On Operator, you turn on the Fixed button.

Not positive if it puts out down to the third decimal place, it probably depends on the frequency. The Ciurse goes in 10s.

You can't just ask for a sine wave frequency accurate to .001 Hz and not tell us what you need it for-- it must be something terribly exciting! Brown note research maybe?

Measuring the structural integrity and resonance frequency of a safe?? That's where my moneys going. :)

That, or shattering a wine glass! Resonance frequencies?
