I am not sure if this feature already exists, but is there a way to
change the middle note in the keyboard mapping section of the scales
dialog (or even every control in the scales dialog) via MIDI messages? I
have tried midi learn, but this does not work as the control is
unlearnable. This way, it would be possible to write music in just
intonation and modulate to different keys by changing the tuning on the
fly. I was thinking of using the very bottom set of 12 notes on the
keyboard (midi notes 0-12) to change the key centre the tuning is
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Well that's certainly different! We've got several people here using
microtonal scales, but nobody has mentioned that idea before. Currently it
On first sight it would seem that the following could all be made learnable
without too much trouble:

With some difficulty it might be possible to set "A" Freq in steps of cents via
an NRPN with a range of something like +- 7 octaves, or for 0.1 cent steps
you'd get a little under +- 3/4 octave. Trying to make that MIDI-learnable would
Tunings and Keyboard mapping would be very difficult indeed, partly because of
the variable way they are created. An added complication is that tunings can be
defined either as cents, or ratios as extreme as 156375/92991
All these controls are 'next note'. There would be no way of applying them to
already sounding ones.
Does anyone else have any interest in this?

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
