    Scala is a powerful software tool for experimentation with musical tunings, such as just intonation scales, equal and historical temperaments, microtonal and macrotonal scales, and non-Western scales. It supports scale creation, editing, comparison, analysis, storage, tuning of electronic instruments, and MIDI file generation and tuning conversion.
    Scala is ideal for the exploration of tunings and becoming familiar with the concepts involved.
    In addition, a very large library of scales is freely available for Scala and can be used for analysis or music creation. And it's freeware!

    Scala Home Page

  • 200 microtuning files included, over 2900 freely available.
      Hermode Tuning
      Hermode Tuning (TM) Technology is a dynamic tuning system which allows tuning instruments real-time. z3ta+ is the world-first virtual instrument to feature this technology.
