Hello, Failop.

Some time back, the subject of musical tuning was taken up in this bulletin board. Please take a look at the final entries at:
http://www.industrycommunity.com/myforum/john_dunn/index.html

If you are doing this work as part of a college course, you should most definitely acquaint yourself with "Pythagoras' Comma". It relates tuning to perfect pitch as a violinist would like versus tuning to a tempered scale as a pianist would like.

The definition of the word "comma" is "an unsolvable problem" and in music, indeed it is!!

Good luck and have some fun with this thing!
