im using renoise in conjunction with a real life gamelan set up.
these instruments are not tuned to the conventional western equal tempered scale.
to make music in the same (slendro) tuning i have to rely heavily on tuning individual samples as opposed to playing samples using the normal keyboard (as this is in a conventioinal tuning)
many midi synthesizers and soft synths (like those created by NI) alow for alternate tunings.
using sysex etc.
for alternate tuning other midi instruments a combination of pitchbend and midi note conversion, often using lookuptables is needed (not an ideal solution, but ok)
anyway,....my request would be that renoise could accept scala (.scl) format tuning files to retune the software, or individual instruments.
this would open up huge posibilities of new composition usually totaly unavailable.
there are thousands of scales/tuings used in the history of music, why follow the herd and stick to one.....hmmmm.....
thanks for your time

some scales have more and some less than 12 notes.
if you are a mac user, have a look at "max magic microtune"
a nice little soft that helps create alternate tunings for max/msp....btw: max/msp + renoise is very fun!
but the most common software for alternate scales is scala....there are thousands of scales created by this soft, for import into other softwares or for retuning instruments.
PLEASE MAKE THIS AVAILABLE TO RENOISE
i am currently retuning my yamaha tx81z as a weak get around of this problem...
but that is only one electronic instrument playing in the correct scale....and all drum hits, sounds insts in renoise totally out of tune.
