SINE

This mode generates a pure tone signal with a sine wave.

By tapping the frequency button, you can set from 4 different frequencies with a single touch. Tap the Play button to generate a tone signal, and the Stop button to stop playback.


atg_sine_2

The sine wave frequency can be set in the range of 20 Hz to 21 kHz. Tap Frequency Monitor, keyboard-input the frequency you wish to set, and tap the Return key to confirm the value.


atg_sine_key

Preset frequencies can be set as desired. Tap the Preset button and save the preset frequency with the Save buttons (Save0 - Save3).


atg_sine_prsv atg_sine_3

SWEEP

This mode generates a frequency sweep signal or warble signal using the sine wave.

The sweep signal produces a sine wave such that the frequency of the sine wave transitions continuously with time in a certain frequency range.


atg_sweep_4

A warble signal is a tone signal that modulates the frequency of a sine wave around a certain frequency f0. This app generates a 1/3 octave band FM modulated signal in which the center frequency transitions continuously with time. Using a warble signal as the measurement signal can disperse the effects of echoes and standing waves generated at the measurement point.


atg_warble_1

By tapping the frequency button, you can set from 3 different frequencies with a single touch. Tap the Play button to generate a tone signal, and the Stop button to stop playback.

Tapping the play button generates a sweep/warble signal. Up sweep and down sweep are available.

The frequency can be set in the range of 20 Hz to 21 kHz. Tap Frequency Monitor, keyboard-input the frequency you wish to set, and tap the Return key to confirm the value. The lower and upper frequency limits must always be set.


atg_sweep_key

Preset frequencies can be set as desired. Tap the Preset button and save the preset frequency with the Save buttons (Save0 - Save2).


atg_sweep_prsv atg_sweep_3

CHIRP

Chirp signal is a sweep signal of very short duration. This app generates a short time sweep signal with a sine wave that increases in frequency with time.

By tapping the frequency button, you can set from 3 different frequencies with a single touch. Tap the Play button to generate a tone signal, and the Stop button to stop playback.

The frequency change curve of the chirp signal can be selected from Linear or Exponential.

The Chirp time is the signal transition time and can be set in the range of 0.1 to 1 second.

Furthermore, since the generation time of the chirp signal is very short, the Start delay time is provided from the time the start button is tapped until the signal is output. The Start delay time can be set within a time range from 1 to 10 seconds.


atg_chirp_lc_2 atg_chirp_exp

The frequency can be set in the range of 20 Hz to 21 kHz. Tap Frequency Monitor, keyboard-input the frequency you wish to set, and tap the Return key to confirm the value. The lower and upper frequency limits must always be set.


atg_chirp_key

Preset frequencies can be set as desired. Tap the Preset button and save the preset frequency with the Save buttons (Save0 - Save2).

NOISE

As the colored noise, it produces White noise, Pink noise, Brown noise, Blue noise, Purple noise and Gray noise.

Select a noise type and tap the Play button to generate a noise signal.


White noise

White noise is a constant noise signal whose component strength in a unit frequency band (1 Hz) is independent of frequency. When viewed in terms of sound power over a frequency band of constant width, it increases with frequency by +3 dB/oct for higher frequencies.

atg_white

Pink noise

Pink noise is a noise signal that is passed through a -3dB/oct low-pass filter relative to white noise. It falls to the right on the frequency response table as the frequency increases. It is a noise suitable for the purpose of evaluating the sound volume in each frequency band because the energy in each frequency band is uniform. In other words, pink noise is often used in acoustic adjustment and measurement because it has the same loudness in any octave band.

atg_pink

Brown noise

Brown noise is a noise signal whose power spectral density descends 6 dB per octave with increasing frequency. It sounds more like an emphasis on lower frequencies or a softer sound quality compared to white or pink noise. In audio applications, it is used for subwoofer phase check and aging of low midrange speaker units. In healthcare applications, it is also used for sound masking in the treatment of sleep disorders, environmental noise and tinnitus.

atg_brown

Blue noise

Blue noise is a noise signal whose power spectral density increases by 3 dB per octave with increasing frequency. Because blue noise is biased toward higher frequency components, it sounds like a high-pitched hissing noise.

atg_blue

Purple noise

Purple noise is a noise signal whose power spectral density increases 6 dB per octave with increasing frequency. Purple noise is biased toward even higher frequency components than blue noise, so it sounds like a high-pitched hissing noise with no bass at all.

atg_purple

Gray noise

Gray noise is a noise signal that exhibits a power spectrum similar to the psychoacoustic equal loudness curve. All frequency components sound the same loudness when listened to by humans.

atg_gray

These signals can be output as burst signals (1 cycle, approx. 5 seconds). Burst signal can be selected from four different duty ratios (10, 25, 50, and 75%). When NoBurst is selected, continuous playback is performed.


# Burst signal cycle time: 5.12 sec (sampling frequency 48 kHz), 5.57 sec (sampling frequency 44.1 kHz)


atg_pink_burst

Octave Band Noise

In NOISE mode, Colored noise signals can be output as octave band noise. Octave band noise is a noise signal in which a frequency band is extracted in 1/N octaves (N is a natural number). It can also be used to measure and evaluate the volume of specific frequency band with respect to the octave band.

This app can output noise signals through a 1/1-octave or 1/3-octave octave bandpass filter using arbitrary noise as the source signal.

Tap either the "1/1 Octave" or "1/3 Octave" button to select the center frequency of the bandpass filter. Multiple arbitrary frequency bands can be selected. The bandpass filter center frequencies that can be selected are 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

Release Information

Version 1.0 was released on April 22, 2022 UTC.

Note

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's settings, "Settings/Sounds" or Control Center.
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.
The chirp signal is a sweep signal of extremely short duration, so it does not guarantee a playback frequency in the specified range.
When using this application with wireless communication such as Bluetooth or AirPlay, there may be cases that limitation of the playback frequency, lowering the output level and irregular noise, etc., may occur under the influence of wireless environment, communication equipment and communication state. Please note that this is not to guarantee that this application operates as configured specifications under the wireless communication.
