(Hmm, couldn't get that 'twelfth root of 2' thing to work properly. Maybe

that's not the right calculation for successive equal tempered pitches...

that's what my Handel book 'Listening' said it was, though. I went ahead and

plugged in true values for the first octave manually, and then duplicated

them upward...very inelegant though.)

For anyone that's interested, I posted an Excel spreadsheet on the web that

has some useful (to me anyway) musical frequencies listed. It's about 92K,

Excel 2000.

For each musical pitch (spanning the 128 MIDI note numbers), I list the

first 16 harmonics, as well as some other stuff like wavelength & period.

That latter may seem weird, but it can actually be quite useful for tuning

your LFOs to create 'synchro-sonic' effects. You can also use this table to

work out some ring modulator effects if you're a glutton for punishment.

I created it because I'm still hell-bent on this idea of using a frequency

counter (in lieu of a quantizer) to precisely tune my VCOs to harmonic

intervals.
