4 OSC Generator: how to adjust the frequency?

I have a stupid question (maybe), but I can't find the way out.
In the 4 OSC Generator: how can I set a specific frequency?
I mean: only till 100Hz I can set any number (97, 98, 99) but then there are some bigger incremental steps, both with the on-board knobs, and with the Helix Editor (moving the mouse, too). But some music notes require halfway values.
I bought some presets from Fremen, and I see that he could set some values that I can't access... and I wonder how you can get there. Thanks for your help!

If you want to set specific notes, use the 3 Note Generator block, not the 3 OSC Generator. The Note Generator will allow to choose discrete notes from the scale rather than just frequencies. The 3 OSC Generator is really more for making Theremin-like weirdness and stuff.

Thanks Phil for the suggestion! But I prefer the sound of the 4 OSC Generator.

And I found out how to set those special values: I have to edit the .hlx file in Wordpad!!! 

Well, it's really tricky, but it works!
