Can you please make the slider logarithmic instead of linear? Look on any graphic equalizer and you will see how there is equal spacing between 100Hz, 1000Hz, 10000Hz (logarithmic). You have a small space between 100Hz and 1000Hz, and a large space between 1000Hz and 10000Hz (linear). Thanks!

Great for adjusting my hearing aids Using a high quality pair of headphones, this app can really help with programming hearing aids. Of course you'll have to have a programmer with the aids, to do this. The best aids for the cheapest price, with programmer, are the SIE64 by Blamey Saunders. You can buy everything online and their tech support is the best too.

Awesome App! Thanks for the wonderful app. Log function is great. Individual Hz step buttons is wonderful. Any chance we could get 1hz and 10hz jumps? Also, I am not sure if this is possible, but I have been doing some research regarding < 1Hz frequencies. I am using some android devices as LFOs, but need them to go slower. Any ideas?
