Re: question for the music gurus:slightly programming related

o, I gotcha. I wasn't thinking about that... thanks. :) so going from 240, my next c would be 480. so I basically divide 240/7 and use that as my scale, and add note+(240*oct) to the mix to get the real note.



Thanks,

You can figure it out based on the fact you know a previous or successive
octive is twice down or up, and that the notes are in equal tempered
chromatic scales. Here's a site; however.

uh... how much is "appropriately?" Is there a range from a to b, b to c,
etc?

You could simply generate a sine wave at 440hz, which gives you concert A.
now that you have the A above middle C, simply increment and decrement
your
frequency appropriately to achieve the desired note.

A rest depends on the beat; it will be one full beat, so a slow
beat will have a longer rest than a fast beat.  I usually just
pick seconds; so maybe I want 5 notes per second, which means my
beat is .8 seconds long, so my rest is .8 seconds.  A measure
will be 3.2 seconds (4 beats).  Each note, then, would be 200
miliseconds, so a quarter note is 50 ms.  I hope this makes
sense.

Unfortunately, my note frequencies list has disappeared, but just
Google "musical note frequencies" or something like it.  HTH!

Have a great day,
Alex

I got really bored earlier, and decided to mess with some musical
notes.
I found a listing of wikipedia's notes, but the f frequency seems
to be off.
Would anyone happen to have a list, somewhere of: 1: the
frequency of a full octive--I can just multiply by 2 or divide by
2 to get higher/lower, and the duration for a full rest--I can
just divide again to get quarter/eighth etc.
