Tuning Scales not working

Post by Kroy » Thu Feb 02, 2012 1:48 pm

I've managed to transfer some of Amos' tuning scales to my Slim Phatty but when I select the various tuning scales and play notes the notes all sound the same as equal temperament. Am I missing something here?

Many of the tuning scales have very subtle differences in pitch. I was thinking the same until Amos made a post about this issue explaining the various subtleties in each scale available in the presets provided by Moog (you can make your own). If you work through the different preset scales you'll eventually find some that are clearly different.

Yeah these are SUBTLE. The pitches differ by a few hundredths of semitones (half steps) but in context are just what is needed. They are advertised for microtonalists right?

Check them out with a tuner and see if they work or not. It is far from extreme.
