Convert a pitch frequency to its closest Midi note number
Freq2Midi converts a frequency to a MIDI note number using the following formula:
midi_note = (log(frequency) - log(freq_ref)) / log(2) * degrees + midi_refA fractional result is truncated to the integer below. By default, freq_ref, midi_ref and degrees default to 440.0 Hz, 69 and 12 to support standard western chromatic scale, but can be changed to support different transpositions or subdivisions of the octave.
midi, convert, scale
