Note/Frequency chart for you

Hey guys, I started sending these charts out with the new retail DVDs and figured some of you might find it useful. I personally use it as a desktop on my studio computer. It's a chart that shows the exact frequecy of all the notes from C0 to C8. I mostly use it when EQing bass and kick tracks but obviously there are other instances where I could use it so I figured other folks may dig it too. There is a little bit of advertising on it, but if you don't want it, you can always photoshop it out.

enjoy!

I already have few, but it's good to have another one.

VERY cool - thanks so much for that!

i've been hankering for a standard reference in front of me,
but keep forgetting to make it happen.

it's about to become my desktop, as well

Awesome, glad some other folks will get some use out of it! I also have a 1600x1200 high res version with a little more flash on it if anyone wants it. I'll have to email it to you though, the file size is too big for an upload.

Thanks- I have a cool one somewhere with the common instruments frequency ranges I'll try to dig out for you all too.

Dumb question though- which "C" is middle C on your chart I was fairly happy thinking C3 was middle c but that looks wrong to me on here?

As long as we're doing charts -- here's a chart showing the difference between equal temperament intervals and the true harmonic intervals...

Equal temperament - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


You can use this chart to see just why guitars and keyboards create chords with slightly enharmonic intervals and which chords are farthest out. (This is why good harmony singers shy away from getting the proper value from keyboards -- as well as why using harmonics to try to get your guitar into accurate equal temp tuning is fraught with error.) There's also discussion of why we use equal temp instead of using the true harmonic values (in a nutshell, just/true intonation tuning doesn't allow modulation) as well as a discussion of other temperament systems and links to discussion of just intonation, etc.

If you've ever wondered why there are beat frequencies in chords played on precisely tuned keyboards, this will explain it.

C4 is middle C. Easy way to remember, A above middle C is A4=440.

See... this is the kind of thing that drove me nuts when I was just starting out... B3 is below C4 but B4 is above C4... doesn't anyone else see how wrong this is?

Yeah - I wasnt expecting A4 to be 440!

I've never got to grips with the idea of numbering the notes as such... I guess I never got into MIDI enough!

Americans call middle C C4 - Japanese and Europeans call it C3!

Thanks Blueroom - this is very useful.

there is also a cool old school chart in bob katz's mastering book. it is a "tipped in plate" so you can remove it from the book and frame or back it.

thanks

Yea, I agree ...I used mine so much I thought other folks, Supersonic users or not would get lots of use out of it. I figured you gearslutz would use it

couldn't you just listen to a sound and already tell what frequency range it's in?
