microtonal scale browser
« on: November 20, 2013, 01:19:46 PM »

Does anyone know of a software that lets you manage and browse microtonal scales, transpose them by an interval (i.e. do modulations), and display them on a fretboard or generalized keyboard?

If it doesn't exist, I guess I have to write it myself - probably in Java, for better portability.

Not that i know of, but see this http://metatonalmusic.com/24Scales.html and Ron tells me he is planning a more interactive version, perhaps you 2 could collaborate?

Ah, that's good to know.

I already started programming, and I first want to work alone on this project, but I suppose it'd be beneficial to exchange design ideas, Java classes, frameworks, algorithms or data (scales etc.) at a later time. I also plan to make the source code freely available. I'm not sure if it'd be a good idea if we work on the same project, since I can be stubborn or unreliable at times, or I'm suddenly not interested in a project anymore and start something new, but it may work out.

But first I have to read some tutorials on Java project organization etc., or the code will become unmanagable pretty fast with my C++ background. ^^

i usually prefer to work alone, and work best that way :)
Many people will be very grateful for this :)
