MIDI Note Chart

A handy reference to look up MIDI notes and their frequencies.

My book includes a handy MIDI note chart and I find myself referring to it often, so I figured it might be useful to put it on the blog too. The design is based on Joe Wolfe’s original chart but redrawn at a higher resolution.

The chart includes only the 88 piano notes. C4 is middle C on the piano, which makes MIDI note 0 be C-1. Not everyone uses that convention: some people start counting at C-2 or at C0, so middle C might be named C3 or C5 on your keyboard or DAW. The frequencies are based on A440 tuning.
