AFAIK, you've been able to do that from within MIDI
files using MTS since version 1.1.0.
Thank you for the information. It points me in the right
If possible, that's the best way to deal with the issue. It's
more-or-less portable, there's no agreement on what would
constitute "perfect" tuning anyway, and, besides, key changes
effectively happen all the time without corresponding changes in
What's more, MTS and pitch-bend are the only mechanisms provided
by MIDI for dealing with unpredictable things like commas and
Of course, you can set up alternate *temperaments* with configuration files. I
usually use Young's tuning since I have to deal with open thirds
quite a bit.
I still have the challenge of describing algorithmically what I did
by-ear way back then.
In your last paragraph, what sort of configuration files were you
referring to? Are they configuring the tuning of FluidSynth? Or
are a way of entering the MIDI MTS bulk data?
