Playing sounds

Sat May 23, 2015 4:10 pm

I want to generate sounds such as bells or piano notes from the General Midi set, but specifying the pitch of each individual note in Hz, in order to explore different tonalities. Can anyone give me a leg-up with a pointer or two please - there seems to be a dearth of tutorials, and documentation generally dives in at the deep end.

Regards - Philip

Similar needs here - I'd love to get the midi general instrument sounds working so Scratch can make a t-ching instead of bonk when wanting a cymbal.

OT: how come that midi list includes pretty much every sound you need to play Tubular Bells except the 'drunken Viv Stanshaw' voice?
