This task is simple: Write a program or function that outputs the list of all musical notes (using English note names) from A♭ to G♯.

All notes without a name consisting of a single letter (i.e. black notes on a musical keyboard) should have their name printed twice, once as the sharp of a note, once as the flat of one. Sharp or flat notes that can be described with a single letter, like B♯ (C) or F♭ (E) should not be outputted.

Here is an example of the output:

Ab, A, A#, Bb, B, C, C#, Db, D, D#, Eb, E, F, F#, Gb, G, G#

Specifications

  • The program or function must not take any input.

  • The notes may be printed in any order, and in any list output permitted by our standard I/O rules

  • The sharp and flat Unicode symbols (♯/♭) may be substituted with b and #

  • As always, Standard loopholes are forbidden.

  • As this is , the smallest program, in bytes, wins.

Au…b #âŽ7×bûÏ

Outputs as a list, where the single-char notes are with a trailing space.

Explanation:

Au             # Push the lowercase alphabet, and uppercase it
  …b #         # Push string "b #"
      â        # Take the cartesian product of both strings to create all possible pairs:
               #  ["Ab","A ","A#","Bb","B ","B#",...,"Zb","Z ","Z#"]
       Ž7×     # Push compressed integer 1999
          b    # Convert it to a binary string "11111001111"
           û   # Palindromize it to "111110011111110011111"
            Ï  # Only leave the notes in the list at the truthy values (1), (the trailing
               # items beyond the length of this binary string are also discarded)
               # (after which the result is output implicitly)

See this 05AB1E tip of mine (section How to compress large integers?) to understand why Ž7× is 1999.

Ž7× could alternatively be ₄·< (1000, double, decrease by 1) for the same byte-count.

Pressing the CTRL key plus N on the C64 keyboard goes into 'business mode' on the character set for upper/lower case characters. We may print this out in a string in one byte / token; and as we have 40 columns, the space from G to G# is not required.

We do not need to close the string in this case as it is not a multi-statemented line with a : separator.

With the range 0..20 this would print an array containing all the flats, all the naturals and all the sharps. The undesired ones Fb Cb E# B# are omitted by using the range 2..18

The notes are printed out ordered according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circle_of_fifths , or in other words ascending by 7 semitones (a frequency ratio of almost exactly 1.5) each time.

This leads to the note letter order given, in which each note is five degrees inclusive (known as a "fifth") above the previous one. For example F->C is FGABC

Lost, 105 bytes

v<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
>%?"Ab A A# Bb B C C# Db D D# Eb E F F# Gb G G\9"-+@

Outputs with #b and space delimiter.

Try it online or verify that it's deterministic.

Explanation:

Explanation of the language in general:

Lost is a 2D path-walking language. Most 2D path-walking languages start at the top-left position and travel towards the right by default. Lost is unique however, in that both the start position AND starting direction it travels in is completely random. So making the program deterministic, meaning it will have the same output regardless of where it starts or travels, can be quite tricky.

A Lost program of 2 rows and 5 characters per row can have 40 possible program flows. It can start on any one of the 10 characters in the program, and it can start traveling up/north, down/south, left/west, or right/east.

In Lost you therefore want to lead everything to a starting position, so it'll follow the designed path you want it to. In addition, you'll usually have to clean the stack when it starts somewhere in the middle.

Explanation of the program:

All arrows, including the reflect \ in the string, will lead the path towards the leading > on the second line. From there the program flow is as follows:

  • >: travel in an east/right direction
  • %: Put the safety 'off'. In a Lost program, an @ will terminate the program, but only when the safety is 'off'. When the program starts, the safety is always 'on' by default, otherwise a program flow starting at the exit character @ would immediately terminate without doing anything. The % will turn this safety 'off', so when we now encounter an @ the program will terminate (if the safety is still 'on', the @ will be a no-op instead).
  • ?: Clean the top value on the stack. In some program flows it's highly likely we have a partial string on the stack, so we use this to wipe the stack clean of that potential string.
  • ": Start a string, which means it will push the integer code-points of the characters used.
  • Ab A A# Bb B C C# Db D D# Eb E F F# Gb G G\9: Push the code-points for these characters, being 65 98 32 65 32 65 35 32 66 98 32 66 32 67 32 67 35 32 68 98 32 68 32 68 35 32 69 98 32 69 32 70 32 70 35 32 71 98 32 71 32 71 92 57 respectively
  • ": We're done pushing code-points of this string
  • -+: Subtract the top two values from one another: (92-57=) 35
  • @: Terminate the program if the safety is 'off' (which it is at this point). After which all the values on the stack will be output implicitly. Using the -A program argument flag, these code-points will be output as characters instead.

Minor note: The top part could also have been v<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< instead. Lost will wrap around to the other side when moving in a direction. So using v<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> could be a slightly shorter path, and since it's the same byte-count anyway, why not use it. :)

I'm currently in the process of brute-forcing the powerset index that would let me get rid of ⟨h₅ct₁₄⟩⟨h₁₂ct₅⟩ (and by extension , since the output doesn't need to be in the same order as the example output), but it's taking quite a while... maybe I should put a minute aside to actually work out what order sublists are generated in, and compute the index that way...

Explanation:

Z80Golf is just a simple fantasy machine based on the Z80 8-bit CPU. The program is loaded at memory location 0x0000, and the rest of the memory is filled with zeroes. Output is done by calling 0x8000, which will output the value of register A as a character.

The program starts with the data that will be processed, 6 bytes in total. Each pair of bytes specifies a note suffix, and a bitmask controlling which of the letters can be combined with this note. To save bytes, the suffix character is inverted (xor 0xff) -- this allows the data to be executed as instructions with little side effects, making it possible to remove a jump that skips this data:

               ;    GFEDCBA
    db 0xff^'b', 0b01011011 ; Ab Bb Db Eb Gb
    db 0xff^'#', 0b01101101 ; A# C# D# F# G#
    db 0xff^' ', 0b01111111 ; A  B  C  D  E  F  G
skip_data:

This is how the CPU decodes this:

    sbc a, l  ; a subtraction with carry on registers we don't care about
    ld e, e   ; put the E register back into itself. This instruction is useless
              ; but still exists to make the encoding regular.
    call c, 0xdf6d ; if the carry flag is set, call a function. The carry flag isn't set
              ; because of the initial register values (all zeroes) when the sbc above
              ; was executed
    ld a, a   ; as above, put A back into itself.

This data is read two bytes at a time into the DE register pair. The stack pointer is used to point to the next element. It starts out at 0, and because the Z80 uses a full, descending stack, any pops will read the next data pair -- all stack operations are 16-bit.

The outer loop is implemented with a decrementing counter in the B register, for which the Z80 provides special support in the form of the djnz instruction:

    ld b, 3
process_pair:
    ...
    djnz process_pair
    halt

The current letter is held in the A register. Because the increment fits well at the start of the loop, we load one less than the actual start value of A:

process_pair:
    ld a, 'A'-1
    pop de ; D = bitmask, E = suffix character
process_note:
    inc a
    srl d ; put the current bitmask bit in the carry flag
          ; also sets the zero flag if this is the last note in the pair
    jr nc, skip
    ; Print the note. Note that we need to preserve the zero flag to check it in the
    ; loop condition later.
    rst $38 ; Short encoding of call $0038.
            ; Because the program is so short, the memory in the 0038..8000 range
            ; is filled with zeroes, which happens to be the encoding for a no-op.
            ; The execution will therefore fall-through to the character-print hook.
    push af ; Save the letter on the stack (which will be just to the left of the
            ; unprocessed data) to free up A for printing other characters.
            ; (only 16-bit register pairs can be saved, so we also push the flags)
    ld a, e
    cpl     ; Undo the inversion used to make the execution fall-through the data.
            ; Done again each iteration because it takes less bytes to operate
            ; on the A register.
    rst $38 ; Print the suffix.
    xor a   ; Standard assembly practice of setting a register to zero by XORing it
            ; with itself. Saves a byte over a simple `ld a, 0`.
    rst $38 ; Print a null byte as a separator.
    pop af  ; Restore the current letter from the stack.
skip:
    jr nz, process_note ; If the zero flag (last changed at the srl d) is not set,
                        ; loop once again
    djnz process_pair
    halt
