Of course the 5Hz frequency shifter is generally bad. Musical intervals
are ratios. The ratio between two adjacent notes in our 12 tone scale is
the twelfth root of 2 thus dividing the octave into equal intervals by
ratio. This is a bit approximate, however, in that other temperings are
occasionally used (and have been for centuries). Groups, for example,
don't stray far from just intonation. It is also useful to use ancient
tempering such as mean tone at times. Still, the scales are based on
ratios. In addition, the exact pitch of tones is negotiable. For
example, harpsichords are sometimes tuned low in pitch by two semitones
or more. However, the instrument will still be tuned to equal
temperament, mean tone temperament or some other ratio based
temperament. Using the frequency shifter will make almost all intervals
