The orchestra is stellar. It’s still not a real orchestra, of course, but it’s a billion times better than what I get from Timidity. What are you using for synthesis?
My ears aren’t good enough to know what intervals you’re using, and I’m playing it at work so I can’t blast it properly. 🙂 Do you have the scale? Are you using septimal thirds, or standard 5/4?
It’s funny that you use JI for Mars, which is warlike and agitated, when one of the things we hear about 12 EDO is that it’s never really restful because of the sharp major thirds. Maybe Pythagorean would be an interesting tuning for this, too. But I say this without even hearing the tuning well enough as it is.
In other words, I’m mostly useless in this comment. 🙂
Hi Jake, I used Kontakt 5’s “factory library” which is a collection of Vienna Symphony Orchestra samples. As for the details of 7-limit JI I’ll direct you to the xenharmonic wiki http://xenharmonic.wikispaces.com/7-limit
