The “Scale Calculator” is a simple online tool designed to calculate the notes within a specified musical scale, based on a given root note. It’s a user-friendly tool, crafted to assist musicians, composers, and music students who need to quickly find the notes within a particular Major or Minor scale. For example, if you input ‘C’ as the root note and select ‘Major’ as the scale type, it will output the C Major scale notes: C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C.
How to use
- Input a Root Note: The user needs to provide a root note, which is the first note of the scale upon which the scale is built. The root note should be between 'A' and 'G'. For instance, if you're looking for notes in the 'C Major' scale, you should choose 'C' as the root note.
- Select the Scale Type: The user then needs to select the type of scale they wish to generate from the dropdown menu. Currently, the available options are Major and Minor.
- Calculate: After providing the root note and selecting the scale type, the user needs to click on the 'Calculate' button.
