How can I convert a sound frequency into an audio file?

Please give me some ideas on how to do this.

Sounds interesting, have my 5!

I would post this question on the comment section for:
Play and Visualize WAV Files using Managed Direct Sound with VB.NET[^]
Perhaps the author will help you.

Google returned this:

It looks like some proposed the question elsewhere recently, too. Perhaps this is you:

+5 for the links
This might helps you

Just fundamental notes. The audio is a wave and a single frequency occurs in sine wave form. The length between the crest/ trough (wave length) is related to its frequency. So if you put points at specific intervals in the wave plot of a particular frequency then the point has two values like x and y in Cartesian plane. Here the X is time and Y is amplitude. So X is just increment of samples/bytes (depends on datatype). Y is the value in the bytes. This amplitude vary gradually according to the frequency curves. From this fundamental you could generate sound samples of a frequncy then write in any known audio format.

If you want to separate a frequency from a complex sound data then fourier transform helps.

I given a startup, go on and best of luck

hmm sorry. I haven't watch your tags. It is java and matlab. So take only my notes and forget that link

Here is a detailed link for wave file format, which would be helpful if you manually write (without help of libraries) the wav file.
