[chuck-users] note names

There's a convention for naming notes like C4 or Eb3 or A#-1 that seems
quite commonly used in music applications. I would very much like a note
nme to MIDI note number converter to make certain things I do with ChucK
a lot more readable and easy to change -


for example.

The problem is that middle-C (MIDI note 60) is not well defined. Quite a
few sources suggest it should be C4 a smaller number suggest C3. Once a
function to do the conversion is in ChucK, it would be difficult to
change without irritating people who use it.

Does anyone have a stronger opinion than I as to what the middle-C note
name should be?
