This is a temperament calculator for converting musical units (ratios, cents, frequencies) and to help position frets on stringed instruments.

To specify your own temperament select "Custom" from the menu. Separate notes with spaces. Write e.g. "3/1" or "A:3/1" for ratios, and "70.6" or "D:70.6" for cents.
