Quote from: "Relabsoluness"Screenshot: Created just intonation tuning. All available ratios are definable one by one(so, no need to have 12 steps after which ratio doubles etc.). Note that this is a draft version..

All available ratios are definable one by one(so, no need to have 12 steps after which ratio doubles etc.). Note that this is a draft version..If I understand things correctly, which rarely happens btw, it's not *really* just temperament as that depends on the scale, i.e. C# isn't equal to Db.
Quote from: "Relabsoluness"Wow, this is nice to see, for only a few weeks ago a new development branch(~a 'development line' including bit bigger modifications) for OMPT was created in sourceforge, and that branch includes a more or less working tuning system that has been tried to create with a open mind in the sense that it hopefully can be used to create more or less anykind of tuning one wishes to have. Currently tuning modes are instrument specific, i.e. every instrument can have its own tuning mode.
Quote from: "furrykef"One problem with just intonation is that it would work best if you could change the tuning with, say, every chord.
Quote from: "Relabsoluness"it seems to me that there's no 'trivial' solution for this, but can one achieve this by having the 'same' instrument multiple times but every one of these would have different tuning, and then use appropriate instrument for every chord in the patterns?
Quote from: "SoundCrafter"I assume in this tuning version, it applies only to individual instruments? I'd hate to have it apply to the whole song and have my kick fart everytime I played it.
Quote from: "furrykef"I think the S2x command (for IT) could be used as a tuning switcher, since the docs say it's only there "for MOD compatibility"... i.e., useless as far as I can tell. If for some reason you actually need to use that effect, you wouldn't be using alternative tunings anyway, so it'd be a no-op in OpenMPT with no alternative tunings defined, which makes it exactly the same as before, right?That'd give you 16 tunings, 0-F, to switch to on the fly, which would probably be plenty. If you want more, you're probably a microtonalist...
