What free programs allow the user to work with specific frequencies, resulting in, i.e., a range of "pseudo-notes" between C and C#? A quick summary of how to use this feature or a link would also be appreciated.

    What do you mean by "work with specific frequencies"? Music notation programs can let you work with pitch bends or tuning changes, though it'll probably be harder to notate and playback quarter tones. – Dekkadeci Sep 15 '18 at 6:10

  • Lilypond has support for notation of microtones though the MIDI output may not be exactly what you're looking for, as lilypond is more for notation.
  • Scala lets you experiment with scales, tunings, etc. Output is to MIDI (which various devices or software support) or other formats.
  • Pure Data or Supercollider can generate arbitrary frequencies from code.

However the learning curve on these free softwares may not be very gentle, depending.
