Xen-Arts has introduced IVOR2, a major update to their free Ivor microtonal virtual analog synthesizer for Linux & WIndows. IVOR2 is designed to be microtonal sound-designer’s virtual analog synthesizer, with a workflow tailored to microtonal synthesis. It’s also designed to be an educational tool for learning about subtractive sound synthesis and musical instrument intonation (microtuning and xenharmonics).
Researchers at Australia’s University Of Wollongong are exploring using 3D modeling and 3D printing to make it possible to ‘print’ microtonal instruments on demand. Here’s a video overview:
Wilsonic is a new app for iPad that is designed to let you explore the microtonal systems of scale theorist Ervin Wilson. Here’s what developer Marcus Satellite has to say about the app:
Op 133 Studios has introduced MicroSketch – an iPad music app for playing and experimenting with equal divisions of the octave other than the standard 12-tone scale. WIth MicroSketch, octave divisions can be anything from 7 to 96. The app is polyphonic up to the capabilities of your device’s processor (typically 24 voices) and multi-timbral with 16… Read More microSketch Lets You Experiment With Microtonal Equal-Tempered Tuning
