The Phatty Tuner program is compatible with Scala scale files, as long as they are 12-tone scales (Scala supports any number of notes/octave).

Here is a link to download 3,900 pre-written scales:
http://www.huygens-fokker.org/docs/scales.zip

and here is a page describing all of the scales. The ones where "Size" = 12 will load in the Phatty Tuner.
http://www.huygens-fokker.org/docs/scalesdir.txt

If possible, I'd like to expand the Phatty tuning system to allow scales with more than 12 tones to the octave, which will allow a lot of cool microtonal stuff...
for now, though, this should still give you a lot to play with.

All the best,

Amos

Does this overwrite the presets that are in the LP when we download the Tuner update?

not Phatty presets; just tuning scales. There are 32 slots for tuning scales in the Phatty; loading a tuning into a given slot will overwrite whatever tuning was in that slot previously. Hope this answers your question.

edit: the v3 OS update for the Little Phatty, when it's ready, will not overwrite your Phatty presets either.

Hey, here are 30 additional tuning files for the Phatty Tuner:

http://seamslikereality.com/moog/Phatty_Tunings.zip

These are mostly Indian, Arabic, and Chinese type scales, with some other cultures represented as well.
Not so much of the meantone, just intonation and other more "Western" tuning variants.

Also, here is a text file listing all of the public-domain Scala files which are 12-note scales
(the type which is compatible with the Phatty Tuner program) --
Not all of these scales will work on the Phatty, but quite a number of them will:

A link again to the archive containing all the scales in the above list (and hundreds more besides):

enjoy!

Amos, any uh, updates on the update? oR rather, updates to the update schedule?
Or updates on the progress of the updater?

Thanks

Hi, Amos. Thanks for including microtuning on a moog product. Can the scales be changed via MIDI while playing, or do they have to be stored one per sound patch?

thanks,
