"Very good and innovative"

Often seriously underrated, this piece of software is actually changing the way I teach microtonalism and it helps me out in many ways, especially when blueprinting new microtonal pieces. To me it's a bit of a revolution, and now I can play microtonal MIDI sequences from Logic and Max/MSP as well. Very good and intuitive user interface. It's a shame there is no Windows version.

"A serious tool for brave experimentalists"

Definitely the most stable and reliable version of this microtuning software so far. It is very different from Scala, but probably better than anything else in this field because of its native OS X user interface. It's one of the few microtonal programs worth bringing to the attention of the students in Max/MSP lessons.

"Long way to go"

August 04, 2003  |  By TC_

 |  Version: Max Magic Microtuner 1.4


This review was originally posted on
I've been experimenting with microtunings and I had high hopes for this product. It gets the job done, but it does it poorly. First, its slow. On my 500MHz machine, it eats 33% of the processor just idling! Second, the interface is awkward. It has an un-Mac-like feel. The program prefers frequencies when most people constructing scales are going to think in cents or ratios (and the conversion tools are awkward). The tone player makes it difficult to cycle quickly through multiple notes of the scale. Some of the menus in the English menu still appear in Italian. I could go on, but I won't. This isn't professional software yet and doesn't justify the new "professional" ($69) price for version 1.4, which doesn't improve significantly over free version 1.3.8. I can't see paying more than $5 for this in its present form. If you need this sort of program, grab the free version (1.3.8) while it's still available and be prepared to be patient.
