How to Use NCH Tone Generator 3.02 to Create Audio Test Tones
NCH Tone Generator 3.02 is a software program that can generate various types of audio test tones, such as sine wave, square wave, triangular waveform, saw tooth waveform and impulse sound waves. It can also generate white noise or pink noise for acoustics testing and equalization. You can use this software to calibrate and test your sound equipment or speakers, demonstrate audio principles to students, create harmonics by generating multiple sound frequencies, or perform hearing tests (under medical supervision).
In this article, we will show you how to use NCH Tone Generator 3.02 to create audio test tones and save them as a wav file. You will need a serial number to activate the software, which you can obtain from the official website or from other sources[^2^]. Please note that this article is for educational purposes only and we do not endorse any illegal use of the software.
Step 1: Download and Install NCH Tone Generator 3.02

Step 3: Generate Audio Test Tones
After activating NCH Tone Generator 3.02, you can start generating audio test tones according to your needs. The main window of the software has four tabs: Tone Settings, Play/Save Tones, Sweep Tones and Noise.
In the Tone Settings tab, you can choose the type of waveform (sine wave, square wave, etc.), the frequency (from 1 Hz to 22 kHz), the amplitude (from -60 dB to 0 dB), the phase (from -180 degrees to +180 degrees), and the channel (mono or stereo). You can also add up to 16 tones at once by clicking Add Tone.
In the Play/Save Tones tab, you can play the generated tones through your speakers or headphones by clicking Play Tones. You can also save the tones as a wav file by clicking Save Tones As and choosing a file name and location.
In the Sweep Tones tab, you can generate a tone that sweeps from one frequency to another over a period of time. You can choose the start frequency, end frequency, sweep time, sweep type (logarithmic or linear), amplitude and channel.
In the Noise tab, you can generate white noise or pink noise with a specified amplitude and channel.
Step 4: Enjoy Your Audio Test Tones
Now you have learned how to use NCH Tone Generator 3.02 to create audio test tones for various purposes. You can use them to test your sound equipment or speakers, demonstrate audio principles to students, create harmonics by generating multiple sound frequencies, or perform hearing tests (under medical supervision). You can also experiment with different types of waveforms, frequencies, amplitudes and phases to create interesting sounds.
