Parva and Linnstrument – microtonal!

Monday, February 27th, 2017

Indium [17] and 16 edo examples using Scala’s relay tuning to on-the-fly retune my Linnstrument midi into said tunings via the traditional omni pitch bend method. I’m still working out on the perfecting the technique so these dsound examples do have pitch bend and other artifacts. No effects were added – these were taken directly off of the Parva output.

Indium [17] is a tuning developed by Gene Ward Smith
