This tutorial shows you how to export microtonal scales using Scala tuning software. You can use your exported scale files to tune up various synths that support these files.

Three important types of tuning file are Scala tuning files (.scl/.kbm), AnaMark tuning files (.tun), and MIDI tuning standard tuning dumps (.mid sequence with sysex data). You can produce all of these tuning files using the free software Scala. Of course there are other standards in use, and Scala supports a lot of those too.

Three commands you'll learn in this tutorial are:
set synth 112 -- sets up for exporting .tun files
set synth 107 -- sets up for exporting MIDI tuning dumps
show synthesizer -- shows a list of support synths

Scala can tune practically any kind of microtonal scale you want. Traditional tunings, equal temperaments, just intonation, empirical scales, moment of symmetry, combination product sets, they're all possible. Then you can retune various synths using the method shown in this short video tutorial.

Scala is free software developed by Manuel Op de Coul in the Netherlands. I would like to thank Manuel for creating this software that is so essential to my own music, and providing it for free as a benefit to all of humanity! Download Scala -- http://www.huygens-fokker.org/scala/
