Here is a short demonstration video of the split mode as implemented in the original Linnstrument. By using the split mode one can access all 200 pads. With a judicious selection of synthesizer and range one can extend a tuning well beyond the current midi standard of 128 notes. The short demonstration piece uses two non-octave tunings => 5/4 divided into 4 and 5/4 divided into 8 notes respectively.

X 48 is a music / video montage using a Linnstrument, u-he’s Diva in 7 edo, Garritan Personal Orchestra, chamber orchestra present in 14 edo, Garritan Personal Orchestra concert grand piano in 21 edo – all images were taken and processed by me. Audio only.

The Temple of Clouds is a combination of processed electric 17 edo guitar and timelapse video – at about 5 through 6 minutes you can see a thunderstorm come through. The video was recorded with a Brinno TLC200 time lapse camera.The tuning is unknown though a 17 edo guitar was used to generate the starting point.
I have been archiving past projects and I ran across this fragment of The Rite of Spring (French: Le Sacre du printemps; Russian: «Весна священная», Vesna svyashchennaya, ‘sacred spring’) and decided it would be interesting to render it in adaptive just intonation since that has been a recent topic of interest on the Facebook group Xenharmonic Alliance II. The video is an overlay of the score and the real time adjustments made by the Kontakt included factory script. I selected the factory brass ensemble which in my opinion rendered a nice version of one of my favorite passages of the piece. YMMV of course. You can find the video here for download.
NOTE: Sonar has a a very odd sense of accidentals if you do not explicitly apply a key.
A piece composed and performed on my Linnstrument by taking a sample of my electric Aeolian Harp used in Dimension Pro using this Just INtonation tuning

This is an ambient music video in tribute to my Sound-in.org colleague Paul who has been experimenting with constrained aleatoric compositional techniques. This is the sound of my electric aeolian harp combined with time lapse video. The harp is a constrained aleatoric device because I tune the string but the wind plays the strings which generates harmonics of the strings.
A montage created from a trip to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. All of the audio in this video comes from the visit processed to some degree. The “music” is tuned to Just Intonation by Melodyne. This wide-screen video is best enjoyed full screen since there is significant detail.
