How to print musical notes from MHrzt numbers


    Jan 11 2019 | 8:35 pm
    I'm doing a research on international music. I want to edit sound that are written in number values. And I want to change them into music notation system. These numbers are sometimes short from the basic notes, meaning they are different from standard note number .values. My question is, is it possible to write music notation system from the hertz value ? I appriciate any help on this related matter.

      mathematically it is simple, if you convert note number 13 to hertz oder note number 13,7 doesnt matter , it is the same formula.
      regarding notation i would suggest to add a small number in front of the note?
      for equal tempered scales with other than 12 notes you might just add a few more lines and invent new key symbols for it.

      I expect that the problems you're likely to hit are going to involve the source literature you're using (some ethnomusicologists use cents when specifying scales, some use frequency) alongside those musical systems that either use wider octaves, or don't really use them as such at all. Have fun, though.

      THe other useful source would probably be Scala, since there are any number of !12tET scales there, even from parts of the world whose musics don't have their origins in the tetrachordal genera.
