Note's Translated into Frequency's ?

Post by Stompa81 » Sun Apr 08, 2007 12:40 am

I was just wondering is there was some sort of table that had a list of notes and next to it had the Frequency of that note.

For example -

C1 = 3570.26 HZ
C#1 = 4286.65 HZ
D1 = 5879.22 HZ
D#1= 8560.28 HZ

Is there any thing like this?? Excuse my Lack of music Theory knoledge :-?

Your value for C1 makes no sense when you know that A 440 (tuning fork) is A4.
Are we listening?..

btw, to flexor users, does flexor have modules that allow you to easily go back and forth between freq and Midi note value? I remember there was a workaround with the stock modIII modules (using the curve scaler I think) but I was wondering if flexor had modules specifically for that purpose.

Try this one - it has the midi note numbers too
