# The `octave`

Package for Typesetting Musical Pitches with Octave Designations

The `octave`

package typesets musical pitch names with designations for the octave in either the Helmholtz system (letter name with subscript numeral for the octave, where middle C is `C4`

), or the traditional system with upper- and lowercase letters and prime symbols, where middle C is `c'`

.

Using this package, authors can just write `\pitch{C}{4}`

and then by calling a package option (`number`

or `prime`

), can render all the pitch names in either system. The system can also be changed mid-document.
