Come on then Mr Wombat. You post some music somewhere played direct and then
through a frequency shifter. I'll tell you which is which. Which, of course, is
impossible if you are correct. I have posted a chord direct and 5Hz shifted.
Direct sounds as it is, direct. 5Hz shifted sounds as it is, out of tune,
discordant, messy and generally horrible. Are you deaf as well as rude ?
