Tuning Comparison With Tubular Bells, Piano, and Lute

For this comparison I used pianoteq’s Tubular Bell, classical piano, and lute patches – so these are not samples because pianoteq uses physical modelling.

What started me off on this path was the posting by my friend Jake Freivald of a couple tritave based tunings which appear in this collection.

Use the link at the bottom of this page which lets you play all of these in a row or allows you to easily skip files. That link may take a while to show as it adds files.

  1. […] have put together a fairly large tuning comparison using physically modeled tubular bells. I hope you enjoy […]

  2. this is well set up to hear the differences and similarities.
    Thanks!

  3. Hi Chris, I love this piece in Blue JI (which, currently, I prefer over Raven v2), particularly the piano version. This piece sounds *very strong* to me and I can’t hear a sour note anywhere. If you have the time a piece in Eagle 53 would be nice. Thanks for including me. John.
