Notes by Frequency [Sticky?]
« on: January 08, 2016, 05:07:16 pm »
Hey all,

Wanted to have this up here for all of us to use when tuning our drums, samples, instruments, etc. This chart will also prove useful in harmonic EQ-ing (accentuating 3rds, 5ths, 7ths, etc.).

There are a couple VST EQ's that have a keyboard on the bottom of them for Hz/Note matching... by Fabfilter and Waves, etc

Oh, I would say most have that feature, as well as simply pulling it up on a spectrum analyzer, but I still for whatever reason have this saved to My Pictures and refer to it quite often.

This is actually quite useful since not everyone uses plugins giving that information. Thanks!

This is a very useful tool.  Also I recently saw that Fab Filter Pro Q 2 has a keyboard display at the bottom of the UI and it matches up with frequencies of notes?? I haven't dug much into it but I saw something like this in a tutorial and I was kind of blown away

Definitely dig into that next time you open up your DAW. It's probably the feature I use the most of any plug-in - I know you walk a dangerous path "mixing with your eyes" but it's hard not to as Pro-Q 2 is so intuitive! It's great if you want to subtly boost the tonality of a drum sample for example, increase the root, 5th or 7th and so on...  :)

Great resource for this type information and much much more, like finding the hz values of semitone intervals + a ton of calculators for bpm to hz or khz, ms, etc. (great for timing your delays, phasers, choruses, reverbs, etc.)
