In reality frequency shifters are only good for the spoken word.
Useless for anything involving music.
One toy much better than a frequency shifter is a pitch shifter.
It gives the same percentage shift per octave. Works mutch better.
Shifts in the range of 5 to 20 cents (1/100th of an octave) give good
The easiest way to generate it is with an audio Fx processor.
Yamaha SPX90 is an example of an old model that should be able to be
picked up seconhand for a song.
