SYNTHESIZER RE-TUNING TO THE ANCIENT SOLFEGGIO: Part 1–Dr. Leonard Horowitz Interviews Michael Walton

This Part 1 of two tutorials for conscious keyboard professionals features Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz, Executive Producer of LIVE H2O, interviewing sound engineering specialist, Michael Walton of SomaMagic Studio. In Part 1, Michael explains how to retune the Korg Oasys synthesizer using the Perfect Circle of Sound™ tuning fork set and a Korg chromatic tuner. Creating a new scale by tuning the Oasys to the Solfeggio frequency-equivalents required exclusion of dissonant tones 417Hz and 714Hz. Walton discovered that the standard tuning A note is the precise frequency equivalent to the 741Hz F# frequency in the Solfeggio. The chance this precise association between the ancient and modern scales might have happened by chance, versus by sinister imposition, is discussed in greater detail at The team discovers that scale-building from C equal to 528Hz frequency demonstrates 417Hz and 741Hz are disharmonious and potentially bioenergetically degrading to humans. This tutorial, developed with funding from LIVE H2O co-sponsor,, is contributed to assist advanced keyboard players in retuning synthesizer software and band performances in 528Hz LOVE.

    I was rounding off at 442Hz. and most could average it about 25Hz. per semi-tone for simplicity on a tuner with stringed instruments. I already gave the basic math and explanation in the past threads from Middle C4 261.626Hz when you add 4Hz.

    There is nothing wrong with dissonant, diminished or augmented chords. Church logic is primitive, stupid & uncivilized. Their musical knowledge came from Babylon, Egypt & Greece then filtered it.

  • asherasator:

    I cannot believe every “BillBob” that wants to achieve 528Hz. within the range of C5 doesn’t know A=440 is within the range of C4, so adding 4Hz. to C4 is adding 8Hz. to the next octave the range of C5 (where 528 is), frequencies are doubled for the octave, this is so simple it’s ridiculous. Idiots in here just look up the frequency of C5 523.251Hz. then add 4Hz. by calibrating the tuner & changing to “A=443 or 444Hz. THAT’S NOT HOW IT WORKS. It adds 3 or 4Hz to C4 261.252 & it reads DOUBLED

  • asherasator:

    When you tune to A=443Hz. it adds 261.626 +3Hz = 264.626 that’s your new C4, your C5 will now be 264.626 x 2 = 529.252Hz.

    When you tune to A=444 it adds 261.626 + 4Hz. =265.262Hz. That’s your new C4, your C5 will be 265.262 x 2 = 531.252Hz.


  • davide144red:

    The difference of one semitone in hertz depends on the frequency:
    C4: 261.625
    C#4: 277.183 – 261.625 = 15.558
    D4: 293.665 – 277.183 = 16.482
    Eb4: 311.127 – 293.665 = 17.462
    E4: 329.628 – 311.127 = 18.501
    F4: 349.228 – 329.628 = 19.6
    F#4: 369.994 – 349.228 = 20.766
    G4: 391.995 – 369.994 = 22.001
    Ab4: 415.305 – 391.995 = 23.31
    A4: 440.000 – 415.305 = 24.695
    Bb4: 466.164 – 440.000 = 26.164
    B4: 493.883 – 466.164 = 27.719
    C5: 523.251 – 493.883 = 29.368

  • asherasator:

    Any person that cannot grasp the basic math & how a handheld tuner or synthesizer functions & calibrates is too stupid to be involved in healing themselves or others with frequencies & needs a basic education in modern music concepts, terminology & theory. New Age crap is always marketed by & sold to ppl who are ignorant & have barely any practical foundation or education in real science or reality.

  • asherasator:

    Let be clear, I’m talking about using a handheld tuner when calibrating. The 25Hz. is in calibration with the tuner for a semitone. I am not talking about the exact note frequency differences for a chromatic scale in equal temperment.

  • davide144red:

    It seems you are ignorant of the math involved in equal temperment tuning. You are correct about frequency doubling by octaves, however this is an exponential process. Yes if you add 2Hz to 261.625, this would add 4Hz to 523.25 to equal 527.25. However we are talking about retuning A4. To find one frequency from another in equal temperment you must us the twelfth root of two: 1.0594631. A4 is 9 semitones higher than C4 so to determine its value you multiply by 1.0594631 to the ninth power:

  • asherasator:

    I’m very well adept of equal temperment.
    The point is ‘the tuner’ calibrates within the C4 octave range and processes everything else like a calculator, so when you hit the same note in any octave range it will read it from C4 octave range, the device doesn’t care if you play C3, C4, C5 or whatever What I’ve been talking about is how to work with tuner and how IT READS so an average person can use their guitar, violin or basic synthesizer. electronic devices have a hard time with the decimal.

  • davide144red:

    1.6187928 x 263.625 = 443.363 not 442

  • asherasator:

    Just like when classical musicians want to use baroque tuning 1/2 step down they go from A=440 to A=415 25Hz. lower. So don’t ride on a bunch of shit out of context. I wasn’t talking about a scale. I’m talking about calibration.

    So if you add 4Hz to to A4 give then frequency of A5 Jaq.

  • asherasator:

    It’s almost the golden ratio you’re using 1.618033 lol! The fuqing tuner or your synth will not read or produce it as such though!

  • davide144red:

    what you’re saying is that a handheld tuner when asked to tune up 2Hz will add exactly 2Hz to every note so that:
    C = 263.625
    C# = 279.183
    D = 295.665
    Eb = 313.127
    E = 331.628
    F = 351.228
    G = 393.995
    Ab = 415.305
    A = 442
    Bb = 468.164
    B = 495.883
    This makes B 6 cents flat, quite inaccurate.
    So how do you know how handheld tuners calculate so poorly?

  • asherasator:

    It’s quite well known in the music business and with programmers that electronic devices: tuners and keyboards cannot reproduce frequencies 100% accurate. It’s because of the decimal. That’s my point the whole time, It doesn’t matter if real 528Hz is 443 or 444Hz. on a real piano tuned accurately with the precise math, the tuner processes it it’s own way. I’m not gona say it uses only total whole numbers but it will be off by 1 or 2 Hz. depending on the device.
    but it has it’s limits & methods

  • asherasator:

    In a certain sense, the tuner is more accurate from a sonic point of view: everything it senses above or below it’s octave is either in tune with it’s basic foundation or not regardless of the math. Every instrument produces over and undertones which can affect it.

  • TheDrzin69:

    If you search 528 Hz with Wolfram Alpha it come out to be ” C# 5 + 16cents “. still there is no real research that is stating that this is true about this frequency.

  • richards4109:

    Is it true that birds chirp and bees buzz to these frequencies?

  • markmusicman:

    It could be the analog to digital converters in the computer sound card. The cheaper the sound card the less accurate the computer will read the tone.

  • aihlo:

    why does 443 = 528? you guys go into that more maybe?

  • dadgadjohn:

    Actually, if you use “Just Intonation Interval” rather then “equal temperament,” then a perfect minor third interval (6/5 = 1.200000) below 528 Hz puts you right at 440 Hz. 440 x 1.2 = 528.

  • MissBehavin1111:

    I was just wondering today if it were possible to re-tune my instruments(guitar and piano) to ancient solfeggio!!! Yeah! There are no coincidences!

  • jovdbo:

    sorry, this can not be correct: all these frequency’s are a little to high : they are not aligned with the old A 432 hz ! f.e. :

  • 44774477ric:

    I have had a 444 phenomenon in my life for many years …this experience led me to spherical geometry , Angelic presence and ultimately to the realization of our mission here on earth……how significant is 444 in this scale……also how can everyday men and women use this new scale to heal…..what tools are required ?

  • MrMisfit6:

    I took an Alesis Andromeda A6 keyboard which has the ability to tune an oscillator and gives the display reading in hz with 2 decimal places.
    It is adjustable by semitones, cents and fine tuning (hundredths of a cent).
    The centre frequency is 440.00hz.
    I tuned it by 3 semitone, 16 cents -3 fine to get 528.01hz
    The semitones are obviously just the distance from one key to the next.
    When I tune 440.00 by 16 cents and -3 fine I get 444.02.

    More above……

  • MrMisfit6:

    …cont from below

    Therefore to get C5 to play at 528 the oscillator must be tuned up by 16 cents or 15.97 cents.

    Why are we being told to tune up by 12 cents or to tune to 443? My research does not agree with these figures. This chromatic tuner technique seems a bit over complicated.

    The figures I see in front of me seem much more compelling so I will go with 16 until I see a better argument to prove me wrong.

    Show me evidence published in a legitimate, peer-reviewed scientific journal that DNA can be “miraculously repaired” by vibrational frequencies, and I’ll eat my shoes.
