I’m not sure I understand the experiment. Did you adjust the eq on every instrument/voice/track to highlight/emphasize 432hz? It can’t all be strictly 432 with all other frequencies muted can it? I would think that would sound really flat. Very interesting. But beyond the experiment - an absolutely delightful mix and a perfect fit with debbizo’s vocal.

Thanks, Speck. It’s tuned so that A is 432 Hz instead of 440.
I think pretty much every VST will let you tune the instrument and I guess they all default to A=440…must be industry standard. Once you set that all the other note frequencies adjust, just like transposing.

I was worried that Celemony might not be able to do it (for the audio/vocals)…but of course, it does :)

I don’t know if it’s placebo, but I like it and I’m gonna keep recording this way.

Acually, I don’t know if it’s a good idea. Might drive people crazy trying to use the samples and not being able to figure out why they can’t get in tune with it!

Kind of what I thought you were doing but I don’t think I’d know how to do it myself. Did you double track the vocals in places? There are some interesing harmonies going on.

There’s 3 vocal tracks. I learned a new trick in Celemony Melodyne a little while ago that I really like so I keep doing it. What you do is you double a vocal track but then you add “random pitch drift offset” and “random time drift offset”. This gives it some subtle variance that adds depth and richness to a vocal track. Then you pan them off from each other. I did the same with the 3rd track (the harmony track.)And each one has it’s own processing; reverb, eq, etc.

If you’re in the studio with the singer you would probably just have them sing another take and get the effect that way…this is sort of artificially doing it. :)

Interesting

The A above middle C is usually tuned to a tone of 440 Hertz
So at 432 you effectively detune by 8 cents (100 cents to a semitone.)
I’m usually out by that even on a good day.

You mean “on” by that…even on a bad day :)
Even your vocal track for the ccM promo was perfect!

I think I got the hertz and cents mixed up a bit, but then I still use a tuning fork.

permalink   Jeris Mon, Sep 29, 2014 @ 6:55 AM
I think those terms are used interchangeably …but yeah, the tuning forks are definitely set to 440.

wow, brilliant in concept and execution. i’ve always been fascinated by PHI, the Golden Mean and the recurring patterns in nature. i may just need to experiment tuning my piano to 432 v 440. a beautiful mix that fills the heart with joy.

Thanks, Emily. Yeah I’m really tempted to keep recording this way…but I think it’s gonna be hard to collaborate. Unless we can get the whole world on board!

Kinda like changing QWERTY at this point though …lol

You had me at hello, well ok, not hello but the first few bars.

After listening to a couple of heavier tracks, this was a light, fluffy, refreshing little melodic piece.

Nice arrangement and choice of sounds. The rhythm track is at the perfect level too, giving the melodic elements room to breath, but providing enough drive to keep me nodding my noggin (head).

Nice work

Cool vibe! Love the track. The article is just plain bs.

Thanks! I’m sending you an interesting message I got about this tuning, I’d like to hear your thoughts on it.

I tend to agree with Zep. If it sounds good that is all I need to know.

Haha…thanks man : )

Yeah, I’m still trying to figure out if it’s completely arbitrary or if there is something to this. I know there’s definitely a science to frequencies as in frequency following response, brainwave entrainment, etc…I almost taught a course on the subject. But this is an entirely different ballgame really.

I read a lot of Beatle harmonies hit such a frequency. I guess since Tesla is in your notes he was big on that. He found frequencies for buildings and rocked them lol

I just recently came across a couple of references to music tuned to 432(Hz) so it’s particularly interesting to me that you are sharing this at this time.

There are some really hip harmonies in here — really good stuff. Yes!

Cool, thanks! I’m still not sure what I think of this. From what I understand there is a perceivable “calming” effect because we are used to a higher tuning and I found out orchestras often tune higher…to 444hz to increase suspense/tension but these effects fade once your ears become quickly adapted again. I know there’s physiological effects from the relationships of frequencies to each other for sure, but a single frequency on its own or an overal tuning, I’m not so sure. I started thinking about it in terms of color spectrum, we perceive the ROYGBIV …the color changes within parameters, but is one shade of blue more “aligned cosmically with universe”? …seems silly.

Same time…one color of blue was chosen for Facebook for specific reason…and user tested rigorously to find the “right blue”! I know the red and blue colors of police and ambulance lights are because we see them the easiest at night. I wonder if it is specific red and blue or if any red and blue would be just as effective.

mathematics sound sometimes pretty urban…especially with this great mixture of instruments and the beautiful debbzio pella’s
