A quick idea, I'm a sound guy, and am always using a set of tools to get work done. It'd be great to have a noise generator (white/pink noise) and a tone generator built in. It would save me from having to carry around yet another set of tools.

Other than that, I'm a new rockbox user, and I must say, i'm quite impressed. Keep up the great work!

This task depends upon

Can't you just use noise sample files for that ? (else i guess that it shouldn't be too complicated to code ...)

a tone generator would be a marvelous thing!!!

yeah, it'd be cool to be able to make a "bell" sound

This would be an incredibly handy feature!
The problem with using sample files for the tone generator would be that you would be limited to a certain number of tones, with a generator you could get whatever frequency you needed.

I would love a feature like this

This get my vote as a handy feature also :)

You could even use part or most of the code from speaker-test from ALSA for this.

I like this too... I also work sound at school and it would help a bunch to config crossovers, etc.

I agree, great for us sound guys... Count my vote on this one..

i totally support this idea aswell, tone generators/noise generators are (still) somewhat bulky to be carrying around in the old side bag when going to live gigs or attending someones in home studio.

plus i mean, the sheer novelty of asessing someones signal flow using a third party firmware on an ipod or something of the likes, just...seems "pro".

we are no longer the consumer generation, localize communal economics!
