A few of the bands who I said were in 444hz on grooveshark aren't...

Both, from what I read are beneficial, especially when compared to 440 hz, but 444 hz is the actual solfeggio A, while I believe 432 is the A that Bach and Mozart used, often just called "Bach Tuning". My personal theory is that 444 hz (solfeggio-tuned) is spiritually uplifting while 432 hz is mentally/intellectually stimulating. Who knows?

Hello there, I'm a Music Composition major at CSU. I just wanted to correct this issue of "solffegio frequencies" Standardized tuning has only been around for a century or so there is no way Bach and Mozart used the same tuning frequency. Back in those days an organ in Leipzig (where Bach lived) could be tuned at 438 while a keyboard in the same town was tuned at 480. There was no set standard of pitch and how we even know what pitch they used back then is beyond me (probably because of the organ pipes).
Anyway I've seen this solfeggio stuff on this website before and IMO it's BS kind of like a snake oil salesmen musicians who claim ONLY music tuned at this pitch will heal you are frauds, just looking to make a buck. I've listened to so much music in my day and especially Classical music and I highly doubt any music is worse or better tuned at a different pitch. The only influence a pitch set at 444 instead of 440 would be it would sound a tad brighter because it's higher while 432 would sound darker because it's lower.
