The SECOND argument is the time duration, and that can indeed be an arbitrary real number. For example: SoundNote["A", 2.25, "Violin"] I presume what you really meant is to vary the FIRST argument to get a different pitch. But the legal values, when not being specified by a named pitch, seem to be constrained only to integral numbers of semitones from middle C, positive or negative. janos wrote: > SoundNote["G", 1, "Violin"] gives you a middle G as if performed by a > violinist corresponding to a predefined scale (should I know which?) > It does not accept real numbers as a second variable. > Play can play you any waveform. > > I would like to have the, say, violin profile but play a sound note at > arbitrary pitch. > How can I do this?
