Scale Workshop

Scale Workshop allows you to create microtonal tunings and play them within your web browser. Your created tunings can be exported and downloaded to your device in various tuning formats.

It’s a web app, so it supports modern browsers on Windows, macOS, Linux, Android and iOS. You can track Scale Workshop development on GitHub.

Tuning files

Handpicked microtonal tuning files that I collected around 2014. Includes a written guide to introduce you to using these tunings. Download them all

Multiple tuning formats are included:

  • tun: for Serum, Omnisphere, u-he plugins etc.
  • scl/kbm: for Surge, Pianoteq, ZynAddSubFX etc.
  • mid (MIDI Tuning Standard dump) for Xen-Arts
