Phatty Tuner - Alternate Scales Editor - new video

Post by moogmusic » Wed Jan 12, 2011 3:03 pm

New on the Moog YouTube Channel

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FMm6PMPHoo

Available for the Slim Phatty and coming soon for the Little Phatty with OS
v3.0, this free download makes experimenting with alternate scales a breeze.
Tuning data is easily editable and is displayed as a ratio, frequency and in
cents. Scala files (http://www.huygens-fokker.org/scala) can be imported and
exported for use with other tuning software. An unlimited number of tunings
can be saved on your computer and the synthesizer's hardware can store up to
thirty-two different tunings; enough to take you around the world and back
again.

If your musical explorations actually take you around the world, the Little
Phatty and Slim Phatty's convenient size and universal power supplies make
them ideal travel partners.

My first thought was "Why the H would I want the possibility to change scale on my LP".
But when I listened to the video I got really impressed!

Maybe I won't use it myself - even if I love that kind of tunes - but I am sure it opens a new market for Moog in the middle East.
And that is not a small market ...

Congratulations to a great idea!

video looks awesome, but how do we get it to work? a few of us have the software and have the scales in the little phatty but it doesnt change the pitch.... is there something we're missing?

I'm having the same problem! The directions say to look in your manual for more info about "scale#" but there isn't anything in their or the addendum about that.

Same here, I have loaded in a few different scales successfully. However the scales don't have any effect - whether selected globally, or saved into a patch. The SP continues to play equal temperament. The only thing that changes is the displayed scale...

I'm interested to know how this worked in the demo vid but not for the rest of us. It doesn't seem like it should be complex to get going ?

Has anyone else out there with a SP managed to get alternate tunings to work?

Maybe it has something to do with the OS. There was an update to 3.03. It didn't add anything as far as the tuning tables go, afaik. Maybe it worked on the demo because the machine was running a different OS. Just a guess. Maybe a setting in the menu needs to be adjusted. Are tunings per patch or global?

Both. You can set a tuning to be global. In each patch you can choose for its tuning to be global, or assign something specific for that patch.

problem is I've been at NAMM... will look into this ASAP.
Clearly we've had it working, as the video proves -- but it seems you're experiencing a bug somewhere.
Could be in the latest version of the Tuner app, rather than on the Phatty side of the equation.
I'll check into it this week. Sorry for the mis-fire!

OK guys, I have a Slim Phatty here running firmware v3.03 617 (what we're shipping now, and available from our website)
and Phatty Tuner v0.6 beta (just downloaded from our website).

Both the Mac and Windows versions of the Phatty Tuner seems to be working perfectly for me. I have the default Slim presets, in which at the preset level, all tunings are set to GL (global), and as I change the Tuning Scale on the Master Menu, I get each new tuning audibly working.

So, for anyone who's not having success with this, can you report here and tell me what version Phatty firmware and what version of the Phatty Tuner you're using? Any other details that might help to shed light on the situation? Thanks.

Hi Amos,

I have OS 3.03 / 617 on a SP (same as it shipped with) but not sure which phatty tuner I have used - downloaded it pretty much straight after the announcement. I can't confirm the version number of the application because someone is sleeping in my studio at the moment (had a lot of floods here and quite a few homeless so they need the space more than me).

Perhaps beta 0.6 is newer than the one I have, when I get the chance I'll check and try again. But I have tried both global and local, the tunings certainly load into the SP OK, but getting them to actually apply - no luck at all.
