It seems to be so that for (most, but maybe not here) people left and right ear frequency perception (pitch) is different. So like when when you'd hear a C in one ear you'd hear a D in the other.

You should experiment with this through headphones, it wont work on speakers.

This patch plays one single tone but moves it from left to right and back again. When listened over head phones there could be a change of pitch (perceived frequency) on the switch. For me this effect is frequency dependent, at the saved settings it's about a semitone.

It is said that people having a large difference in perception for left and right ears should not try a musical career. I could not find anywhere what a large difference is, but a semitone seems huge to me. OTOH, having a certain difference might guide one into a direction. Or it might make the difference between being liked as a musician/composer or not (depending on one's and other's ear differences, it might explain success in composition for certain scales used, or lack of that).

I'm even perceiving a glissando effect on the left/right swith btw. Both pitches seem to start high and glide down, settling onto something different. Even after a while some anticipation kicks in. It is as if the brain wants to correct some ear defect, it is getting confusing even after a while :-)

-==-==-=-==-=--=-

Control the frequency by turning the knob on the OscB1 module.

Control left/right swith speed with the knob on the LfoC1 module - switch speed makes a difference, try to control the glide time as well on the Glide1 module.

This patch can be used in the G2 demo software, even on not so well performing computers.

I'm chewing away somje cheese right now ... pressing my jaws onto each other means a pitch raise Question

Edit : up as much as a semitome even ...


And when I sing a note and keep it steady the harmonony changes as well on the switch, this is nuts !!

I mean, its likeh aving a note switching left/right, humming another note and then eating some cheeese .. and then it turns into music Question
