COMMENTS

The scale is equal-tempered ("Wohltemperiert"), introduced by Johann Sebastian Bach.

Subsequence of A101286, obtained by removal of the 5 black keys' frequencies in each block of 12 keys. - R. J. Mathar, Mar 12 2008

FORMULA

From David Wasserman, Mar 17 2008: (Start)

a(7n) = round(55*2^(n-1/6));

a(7n+1) = 55*2^n;

a(7n+2) = round(55*2^(n+1/6));

a(7n+3) = round(55*2^(n+1/4));

a(7n+4) = round(55*2^(n+5/12));

a(7n+5) = round(110*2^(n-5/12));

a(7n+6) = round(110*2^(n-1/3)). (End)

a(n) = round(55*2^(int(3*(4*k-1)/7-1)/12)). - Federico Provvedi, Feb 14 2014

MAPLE

A101286x := proc(n) 55*2.0^((n-1)/12.0) ; end: A101285x := proc(n) if n >= 8 then 2*A101285x(n-7) ; else A101286x(op(n, [1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 11])) ; fi ; end: A101285 := proc(n) round(A101285x(n)) ; end: seq(A101285(n), n=1..80) ; # R. J. Mathar, Mar 12 2008
