How to change tuning from 440hz to 432hz?

I can't seem to figure out how to change the tuning in Absynth. It's easy in Kontakt, there's just a global tuning frequency at the top (440 by default), that I can just change to 432hz, but I can't figure out how to do the same in Absynth.

Any help would be much appreciated. I've been unable to find this out by searching.

I may have found it... went to Performance, Tuning, New, and found a_3 and changed the value to 432 rather than 440.

Hello Symbiot, in Absynth go to "Perform" then change the "Transpose" value to -0.320 that will change the overall tuning by -32 cents meaning A=432 Hz. In Reaktor you can change the "Tune" value to 47.68

In maschine its simple. I use the Maschine 1.8 still and i go to Modules - Sampler. Then Under pitch/ Gate Tune should be -x.32 x is whatever pitch you pick. Hold shift down to fine tune

Sorry, this may be a stupid question. But if Standard tuning is 440... (which is represented by the default setting "0.00") then to detune to 432 wouldn't that be -8 cents not -32 ? ie. 440 - 8 = 432. whereas 440 - 32 = 408 ?

You are comparing two different things here. One being the frequency in Hertz and one being the tune in semi-tones and cents. While the frequency is linear, our perception of tones is logarithmic. That means an octave is always a doubling of the frequency, a semi-tone is a logarithmic separation into twelve tones of an octave and a cent is a sub-separation of a semi-tone into 100 bits.

This means that a cent is not equal to 1 Hz but can is less at lower octaves or more at higher octaves.

Hi, is there any synth from NI that can do magic of desired frequency assignment to any key? In other words creating custom scale from scratch?

Reaktor Can do this, but it could be complicated, but it could also be built into a module that allows you import that feature into many synths very easily after it has been built.

Module? What exactly you refer to, something like SuperColider? Will appreciate if you know specific name of software that can do it. I m willing to build one.

just give me a few days and I'll put something together, I think explaining it might be harder than actually doing it.

All good, I have found one option with Waldorf app called Drum Attack. There is option to assign custom frequency. But anyway when you able you can check out is good to know on some other ways.

I just did a little test in reaktor, take any ensemble and add a constant subtractor of -0.3179 to the pitch controls to achieve 432 tuning.

Cool Edit Pro version 2.1

How To convert from A=440Hz to A=432Hz or from A=432Hz to A=440Hz,
or from A=440Hz to A=444Hz (= up 1%), C5 will be 528 Hz.

Go to; Toolbar menu; Effects; Time/Pitch; Stretch..

To convert from A=440Hz to A=432Hz
Fill in under Ratio: 101.863
(101.851851851)

To convert from A=432Hz to A=440Hz
Fill in under Ratio: 98.19
(98.181891818)

To convert from A=440Hz to A=444Hz (A=444 Hz => C=528Hz)
Fill in under Ratio: 99.099
(99.0990991)

Check: High Precision
Check: Pitch Shift
Check: Choose appropriate defaults
