Chromatic Scale

The Chromatic Scale is a scale formed by semitones, containing all the twelve pitches used in western music.

The chromatic scale does not have a tonic note, key signature or any sort tonal centre, which means that there is only one chromatic scale, and for that reason, the chromatic scale cannot be used to set the tonality of a musical piece.
