thanks for your quick reply. -- Yes, simple mapping of one MIDI note to a
frequency is easy, and the environment in which I work offers built-in
converters for that.
But, how to best quantise chromatic notes to a given musical scale like C
minor or B Dorian? I would probably need some method to do it for both MIDI
notes and in frequencies.
