@MeasurementBlues: Are you implying that analog circuit have no accuracy?

Of course not -- I'm saying it out loud

@max But I need something that works accuracy :-)

Are you implyingthat analog circuit have no accuracy? Actually, it's called uncertainly.

@MeasurementBlues: ...He asked for a frequency counter, too...

So you gave him a stopwatch and told him to play a tone through a Bluetooth speaker and start counting...

@Max It's unfortunate that he'd asked for a new lawnmower :-)

@Max I wanted it as an electrical signal whose voltage amplitude and offset I could control.

They have analog circuits for that, but your a digital guy.

@Measurement blues: ...when you can get a free app for your phone and have it play on a Bluetooth speaker?

I did talk about iPad/iPhone/iPod apps and explained why I decided not to use them (sit up and pay attention man!). Also I don;t want to play the tone through a speaker -- I wanted it as an electrical signal whose voltage amplitude and offset I could control.

@Max, I once made an audio oscillator for my father using a 555 timer and then filtering out some of the harmonics.
