I must count myself very fortunate. I say this from experience playing
and from tuning pianos and harpsichords. The errors you introduce with
frequency shifting by a fixed frequency are impossibly out of the
tolerable range. Try tuning every note on a piano low by even 1Hz and it
sounds terrible. Almost all harmonies are broken. You seem to be a bit
atavistic. Even the ancient Greeks more than 2000 years ago had a grasp
of basic harmony and understood intervals in music (they knew the modes
we use today though we mainly retain only the major and minor modes).
Modes, BTW, are all of the unique 8 tone scales that can be played using
only the white keys of the piano - we mainly use only two.
