Hauptstimme.js

This project is for searching musical scales and chords which match a selection of notes. It is registered as a npm package and originally built with TypeScript.

There are 91 instrument tunings available and 26 scale and 51 chord types which produce 312 and 612 searchable variations, respectively.

When using the interface, left click on any instrument fret or key to select a note. Your selection will be indicated by a blue background around the note you chose. Clicking a second time designates this note as the root note. This is illustrated by a red background. Right click on any selected note or root note to clear it. After you are finished selecting the combination of notes you want to search for, hit the search button.

When the search has finished, the lists below the instrument will be populated with results that match the selected notes. Left click on any of these search results to apply it to the instrument above. Notes that are in the search result you selected but are not a user selected note will have a gold background. Click again on the same result to clear it from the instrument.

Metronome

This metronome (and the larger website) is built with React and JavaScript and employs Web Workers and a self-correcting timer. The range of recorded variance is ±2 milliseconds off of true time.

To use the metronome, select your beats per minute using the input box in the top left corner and your note subdivision using the dropdown in the top right. Then press the "Start" button to begin the count. Left click on any subdivision to mute the beat which is indicated by a black icon. Left click again on the black icon to unmute it and remove the black indicator.
