More velocity tuning options - and midi tuning tests
Tuning Table type (drop list)
Select the type of tuning table to use:
MTS sysexes - synth support for this is rare
.Tun tuning - to say synth is already tuned
Velocity keyswitches - an experimental feature that works with many Kontakt instruments...
The MTS sysexes can be sent to retune a synth in real time - but few synths support them.
You can use the .Tun method to tell Bounce Metronome that the synth is already tuned to the desired tuning, or to export a .tun File to be loaded in another synth.
The velocity keyswitches is a new experimental feature - you can download a script to add to Kontakt instruments to support this feature.
You can get the velocity keyswitches script here: http://robertinventor.com/bmwiki/High_numbered_keyswitches_retuning
Send MTS tuning tables to tune currently selected Midi Out Device(s) (check box)
Tune this out device with MTS sysexes - or velocity retuning keyswitches (experimental) - or assume tuned with .TUN tables...
You can set the way this works from the .Tun and MTS sysex options.
You can load a .TUN tuning table in Bounce Metronome to tell it how your synth is tuned so that it doesn't need to send the notes on separate channels. You can then select which of the out devices are already tuned in this way. This switches off the pitch bend channel remapping for those devices, and the tuning table you loaded is used to choose which midi notes to send to the device to achieve the desired pitch. Notes not in the tuning table are ignored. You can see what is happening from Out | Notes Currently Playing (Ctrl + 47) | More
Midi Tuning Standard Sysexes
This is an ideal way to tune a device in midi because a program like Bounce metronome can tune it directly and you don't need to keep loading the tuning yourself in the other program or changing its selection if you change the tuning.
Unfortunately only few devices so far implement the standard way to do this - but they include some of the synths from Native Instruments such as the FM7.
Many hardware synths have tuning tables but unfortunately they are specific to the model of synth and it is a lot of programming effort to implement all the variations. Manuel Op de Coul has done that however in Scala so you can use SCALA to tune most hardware synths.
