# v_midi2frq

## PURPOSE

V_MIDI2FRQ Convert musical note numbers to frequencies F=(N,S)

## SYNOPSIS

function f=v_midi2frq(n,s)

## DESCRIPTION

```V_MIDI2FRQ    Convert musical note numbers to frequencies F=(N,S)
s is:    'e' equal tempered (default)
'p' pythagorean scale
'j' just intonation

notes are numbered in semitones with middle C being 60
On the equal tempered scale, note 69 (the A above middle C)
has a frequency of 440 Hz.

see FRQ2NOTE for the inverse transform```
