Sometimes seen on octave selector switches for oscillators. It refers to the length of an organ pipe. Shorter pipes = higher pitches; 2’ is rarely seen on modular oscillators as it’s rather high in pitch – two octaves above middle C as a starting point. A pipe or setting twice as long (4’) is one octave lower; a pipe twice as long again (8’) is two octaves lower; etc.
