Max Magic Microtuner is a Macintosh application (OS X and OS 9 Carbon) for creating, editing and testing microtonal scales and keyboard mappings; as a special feature it allows Max/MSP and Pluggo users to generate their own alternate tuning external objects by converting specially formatted text files into C-compiled Max/MSP MIDI-to-frequency externals. These tuning text files contain the intonation table data and can be created and edited with Max Magic Microtuner itself or with other text editors. You can export the intonation table data in a text format that is compatible with the read method of the Max "Coll" object. You can create, import, edit and export 128-note MIDI Tuning Standard keymap files (.syx, .mid) compatible with the Native Instruments FM7 softsynth and with all software and hardware synthesizers supporting the MTS format; you can also import and export native Scala (.scl) microtuning files, export Korg OASYS PCI audio card tuning files (.tun), and export Native Instruments Pro-52/Pro-53 tuning files (.p5m).
What's new in this version:
- the Microtuner window now responds to MIDI note events under Mac OS X;
