For those of you who want to hear Prince in the A=432hz tuning

For those of you who want to hear Prince in the A=432hz tuning (i.e. the natural way), you can download this cool free app here: https://www.432player.com/

.

Don't know what the A=432hz tuning thing is all about? Just Google it, or watch this video by members of the group Dream Machine. They do a pretty good job at explaining it.

Just tried it and I didn't notice a difference. I listened to a few songs and I listened with the 432 setting turned on and off. I think it's more of a psychological effect where you think it'll sound different so it sounds different to you, sort of like a placebo.

Don't start telling these people about 432hz, they'll argue to no end about it.

I, like you, get it, and have encoded a lot of my library to 432hz.

And no, you don't hear it specifically. Read about 432hz, and how everything has a frequency in the world, including humans. Humans vibrate at 432hz. Music is 440hz, but if you play it at 432hz, it's less subconsciously irritating and off-kilter to your senses. I tested some George Michael (Symphonica, Older) at 432hz on my roommate while running errands one day. Out of the blue he said, "Something is different about this. I really like that Symphonica album." He continued to go on about it, then I told him about the 432hz thing.

I can hear a difference, 432hz actually does sound more natural and pleasing to my ears than 440hz.

432hz sounds fuller and nicer on the ear whereas 440hz sounds thinner. 432 Hz touches the full 12 scale octave overtones of all music, whereas the music of today vibrates at 440 Hz. This 440Hz only touches 8 scale octave overtones. 432hz music touches your heart which makes listening to music a more emotional experience. - MrBtskidz

Okay, I'll take the bait. smile With respect, there's a lot of nonsense spoken on this subject, most of which is based on mathematical coincidences that have no ultimate significance or just plain old mystical mumbo jumbo. When it comes to the question of ideal tunings, the ratios between tones are far more significant than the given frequency of the reference tone. The Western Standard (the clue is in the name) is Equal Temperament, which is a kind of compromise. The shortcomings of this system in terms of ideal ratios will persist regardless of whether the A is tuned to 440hz or 432hz:

Historically and culturally there have been a wealth of different tuning systems, and what we consider to be “in tune” is largely culturally determined by repeated exposure. For example, until you've grown accustomed to these tunings, much of the below will probably sound “off” at first :
