Functions Reference


(qu.)quantize

Configurable frequency quantization tool. Outputs only the frenquencies that are part of the specified scale.

Doesn't work as intended for frequencies between -1 and 1.

Usage

_ : quantize(rf,nl) : _

Where :

  • rf : frequency of the root note of the scale.
  • nl : list of the ratio of the frequencies of each note in relation to the root frequency.

(qu.)quantizeSmoothed

Configurable frequency quantization tool. Outputs frenquencies that are closer to the frequencies of the notes of the specified scale.

Doesn't work as intended for frequencies between -1 and 1.

Usage

_ : quantizeSmoothed(rf,nl) : _
nl = (1,1.2,1.4,1.7);

Where :

  • rf : frequency of the root note of the scale.
