Is this possible: 440HZ to 432HZ to 444HZ?

NOTE: If this is the wrong sub-forum please redirect.

I am doing some audio research into John Lennons' Imagine and was wanting to test it in all three different frequencies to see the changes no matter how subtle -if at all.

Is there a plug-in for Winamp that does this?

Using the 5.8 beta.
Thanks in advance.

Meaning like an equalizer or...?

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing

Yes.
I found Chronotron version 1 and Fourier Pitch/Tempo Control plug-ins.

Assuming the default in Chronotron -which is 120 is 440hz
Also assuming the default in Fourier Pitch/Tempo Control which is 100% is 440 hz.
I know it is a lot of assumptions but have no idea where to set them to get the 432hz and 528 hz to begin testing.

Found a way that is more involved to do this.
Makes the sound in Winamp more crisp for me at 444 but after time weird at 432... I see why Lennon used 444 now.

Sorry my bad internet just came back online.
Using the Audacity batch process tutorial here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I47DfhmVztM

Granted it is only explained for 432Hz but plugging the math into the equation he gives allows me to get 444HZ as well.

With that said -I have tested 432hz, 440hz & 444hz with my 5.1 Surround system using Winamp to play music straight after conversion and have noticed some slight nuances...

First let me say that I am an extreme audiophile when it comes to minuscule sound differences -so most probably would not notice the difference I do with my Logitech Z506 Surround Sound system. Again for those who don't want to look that up the L Z506 comes with the two mains, sub-woofer, center and two side speakers.

Now the nuances that I have noticed -again mileage may vary depending on speaker setup and personal audio preference but here is what I have noticed so far:

432:
The sound is ever so slightly softer and at times can get fuzzy static and some rare cases there can be popping while people are singing. Occasionally I did hear hissing -sometimes during the music only and sometimes then during singing while no music and then vice versa -strange and weird.

Seems to focus in the center channels and maybe the mains a bit but the side channels almost have no use. Sub-woofer doesn't even get noticed unless maxed.


440:
Standard -what most hear. Slightly louder than the 432, no fuzzy static and no popping.

Seems to favor the mains backed up by the center with the side speakers adding here and there but not constant mainly intermittent in my opinion. Sub-woofer kicks in at a little over half volume.


444:
Seems to take real advantage of the 5.1 system better than either of the other two. Have to cut volume across the board in half.
IT. IS. Louder.
There is no fuzzy static nor popping in the singing of voices.

Seems to focus the center speaker and the mains at the same time while the side also work in unison but maybe slightly weaker than the rest still more constant than the other two frequencies. Sub-woofer packs a wallop of a power boom -equals 440 if power level is decreased to three ticks below half power on the sub-woofer.
