I’ve finished programming the racks for the upcoming sound library. I’m going through each instrument and tuning any samples that have pitch to concert pitch. I like doing a first pass by ear which requires a reference pitch.
A quick way to do this generate a fixed pitch for reference is to use Ableton Operator.
- Click the Fixed button for Oscillar A
- Turn the Freq knob to the desired pitch. Mouse over the number below the knob and type in the frequency you need.
- I then create a midi clip that plays a note. I start the clip, then can navigate away to other tracks.
Here is a handy article on Wikipedia for Piano key frequencies.
