Audio Tone Generator - Reference Audio Test Signal Tools

icon_atg

"ATG - Audio Tone Generator" is a high quality Audio Signal Generator application for iPhone, which creates the Audio Reference signals as Sinewave, Frequency Sweep, White Noise and Pink Noise. This app is an advanced version of the "Audio Tone Generator Lite" app.

It creates the reference audio test signals as Sinewave, Frequency Sweep, White Noise and Pink Noise, and has a high precision of DVD quality and a frequency accuracy of 0.1Hz. Frequency Sweep time can be altered as desired by the user.

In version 4.0, it has been added a new feature of the octave band generator on NOISE mode. It can generate the reference noise signal of 1/1 octave band and 1/3 octave band.

It will help you to make the benchmark for your audio equipment and loudspeakers, your listening environment and room acoustics or your hearing. The signals created by this app can be best used in conjunction with external devices, such as an audio spectrum analyzer or a sound level meter.

In addition, by having you to use it in conjunction with our Real-time Audio Analyzer, it can be easily measured the frequency response of your Audio system. Please use this app as the standard pink noise signal generator.

Top View

In the time of starting this app, you can see the operation setting area at the top, and the control area at the bottom.

In the control area, you can select one operating mode from Sine-wave mode(SINE), Sinewave sweep mode (SWEEP) and noise mode(NOISE). In addition, you will be able to control the playback volume, Play/Stop and Output channel.

In the operation setting area, you can see the parameter of the operating mode that has been selected in the control area.

SINE Mode

This mode is used to generate Sinewave signal.

If you touch the frequency display monitor, it is possible to use the keyboard. In keyboard input, you should set a frequency of 23999.9Hz from 20.0Hz. It should note that the initial value is not entered at the application startup, you will need to be set the frequency of up to one decimal place.

Further, the signal can be set from frequency of the eight types by tapping a preset button. It generates a tone signal by PLAY button, and stops by STOP button.

SWEEP Mode

This mode is used to generate the frequency sweep signal.

It generates a sinewave of transitional frequency continuously in the frequency range of 23999.9Hz from 20.0Hz. If you touch the frequency display monitor, it is possible to use the keyboard. In keyboard input, you should set both the upper and lower limit frequency. It should note that the initial value is not entered at the application startup, you will need to be set the frequency of up to one decimal place.

In addition, you can set the frequency of the two types by tapping a preset button. There are two PLAY buttons that can be generated rising sweep and downward sweep. Generates a tone signal sweep by PLAY button, and then sweep on 10 to 180 seconds by setting of "sweep time" . Default time is 60 seconds. It stops the generation of tone signal by STOP button.

During playback, PAUSE button (II) is displayed, you can suspend when you tap it. If you want to resume, please tap PLAY button again. Note that you can not change the setting of frequency and sweep-time in the paused state. Further, if you want to reset the paused state, please tap STOP button.

NOISE Mode

This mode is used to generate White and Pink noise. You can select one of either Pink or White noise. It generates a signal by PLAY button and stops by STOP button.

White noise
The amplitude of white noise is constant throughout the audible frequency range.
Twice the power corresponds to 3 decibel increase, so white noise is said to increase 3 dB per octave in power.
Pink noise
Pink noise is filtered to give equal power per octave or equal power per 1/3 octave.
The power of pink noise per Hz of bandwidth decreases by 3 decibels per octave. When pink noise is chosen for equalizing auditoriums, the real-time analyzer can be set up so that they display a straight horizontal line when they receive pink noise.

In addition, it is possible to generate the burst signal by selecting one of 1, 2, 5, and 10 seconds with "Burst time". The duty of the burst signal is 50%.


Octave Band Noise

In NOISE mode, Octave band noise can be generated. It can also be used for detailed analysis of specific frequency band.

Octave band noise is generated a frequency limited band signal by using the band-pass filtering of 1/1 octave band or 1/3 octave band. It can be used in order to measure and evaluate the sound level of a certain frequency band on the basis of the octave.

This app can output a noise signal that are processing the source signal of White noise or Pink noise with the octave band pass filter.

By tapping "OCT band" button, octave band noise generation function becomes effective.

In addition, by tapping either "1/1 OCT" or "1/3 OCT" buttons and select one center frequency of the band pass filter. At this time, the center frequency of the selectable bandpass filter is as follows.

Center frequency of 1/1 octave band bandpass filter : 63, 125, 250, 500,1000, 2000, 4000, 8000 Hz
Center frequency of 1/3 octave band bandpass filter : 50, 63, 80, 100, 125, 160, 200, 250, 320, 400, 500,630, 800, 1000, 1250, 1600, 2000, 2500, 3150, 4000, 5000, 6300, 8000, 10000 Hz

Attention

Please be careful that continuous high-volume and high-frequency signals can damage speakers, even if your ears don't perceive them as being too loud.

If the silent mode is turned on, all iPhone sound outputs are disabled. To enable the sound output, please be sure to turn off the silent mode in the iPhone' settings, "Settings/Sounds" or Control Center.

On the keyboard-input of frequency, please press the return key after entering a numeric value. Also, in the sinewave sweep mode, please press the return key after entering two numeric values continuously.

AirPlay data transmission is a wireless communication system using Apple's proprietary audio data compression. For this, there are cases where the random sound noise is generated by radio condition and the compatibility of AirPlay connection equipments. Note that it may occur at particularly high frequency band.
