Well, the way we did it was to retune the synthesiser fluidsynth using the 
tunings (?) command. It was a slightly different problem because we wanted 19-
ET rather than messing about with pythagorean adjustments, which might have to 
change every time you modulate anyway? We found that not many commercial 
synths obey the midi tuning protocol (in fact none of the ones we looked at).

Off topic, I'd be interested in why you want to teach singers to sing out of 
tune anyway :D (that was a troll :) )

Here's a video about the 19ET stuff...

Just click on the first thumbnail. Sorry about the flash. HTML5 hasn't reached 
browser near me yet :)
