Scalefreq Generator v1.01

Scalefreq Generator is a tool for rendering frequencies of notes / musical scales into various output formats. It’s primarily aimed for mixing/mastering engineers and other musical interested people. The frequencies of musical scale or non-scale notes (inverse) are important in mixing and mastering situations. E.g. non-scale frequencies are often attenuated using an EQ.

Scalefreq consists of a core system, a render-plugin architecture and a graphical frontend for convenient user interaction.

Currently the following output format renderer are included:

  • HTML Renderer: generates HTML pages which contains scale frequency tables
  • Voxengo GlissEQ Filter Renderer: generates importable EQ presets for Voxengo GlissEQ VST plugin
  • Voxengo GlissEQ Areas Renderer: generates importable EQ Areas presets for Voxengo GlissEQ VST plugin

HTML RENDERER

The HTML Renderer creates frequency tables in HTML format for any specific scale. Alternatively it can render all tonic variations of a scale (chromatically). Also a huge HTML file can be generated, which contains all available Scalefreq scales.

GLISS EQ FILTER RENDERER

The Gliss EQ filter renderer generates CSV files which can be imported into Voxengo Gliss EQ VST plugin. Thus, it’s e.g. possible to conveniently import notch/peaking filters for non-scale notes (= inverse scale).

GLISS EQ AREAS RENDERER

The Gliss EQ area renderer also generates CSV files which can be imported into Voxengo Gliss EQ VST plugin in order to create colorful EQ areas marker.

INSTALLATION

A Java 1.7 Runtime Environment (JRE or JDK) is required.
The following platforms are supported:

  • Windows (32/64)
  • Linux GTK (32/64)
  • MacOS (32/64)

In order to start the program, just double click the file “scalefreq_1_01.jar”. If this doesn’t work, try to start from the command line:
java -jar scalefreq_1_01.jar

E.g. on windows:
press windows key+r, "cmd" -> java -jar path to scalefreq_1_01.jar

HINT: scalefreq stores all made settings in the current user profile. In order to reset the settings press the reset button.

 

FURTHER HINTS

If you want to develop another plugin/renderer for Scalefreq (really easy !) just contact me. I’ve planed to release the source code if enough people are interested.

Also if you’re interested in different scales etc. just let me know !

 

CHANGELOG

  • 1.0 - initial release
  • 1.01 - proper multi platform support for Win,Mac,Linux (all 32/64), better font for multi platform (Arial), default frequency range for GlissEQFilter renderer is now 20 Hz..20 KHz

    Please do this for the great Meldaproduction MAutoDynamicEq and MDynamicEq plugins.

    Great job

    Thanks and greetings

      I had a look at it. Seems that the area presets are stored in a proprietary format. Though, if Melda Productions would provide the format specs I could do it.

    Thanks for this fantastic tool!

    I have GlissEQ and this is going to be great for removing unwanted frequencies from atmospheric samples using inverse scale!

    Greetings.

    Doesn’t run on linux:

    no swt-win32-4333 in java.library.path
    no swt-win32 in java.library.path

    seems, it search only for win-swt libs.

  5. Kott says:

    Yes, works. Thank You!
