Software for Creating Customised Scales?

Postby pt007 » Mon Jan 30, 2017 9:04 pm

I'm interested in experimenting with creating customised musical scales, and wondered if there is any software available that can do this? e.g a 20 note scale mapped to a midi keyboard to create unique chords? If no specific software exists, any thoughts on how this could be achieved within a DAW (I use Cubase Pro)? Many thanks!

Hi pt007,

I suggest you investigate the Scala Micro Tuning software, as there's already loads of options readily available from the deeply historic to the avant garde.

Start here: http://www.huygens-fokker.org/scala/

Various modern software synths already support micro-tuning files (I know Alchemy does for instance).
