It would be great if we could use custom scales / temperaments /tuning in Bitwig, natively with the built in sampler and synths etc. Something similar to Absynth's tuning system perhaps. Not just loading scale tables in like some other synths - but be able to define ratio's etc from a given root note. So we can make perfect chords with just intonation for example.

Good wish! We will add it to the list for future versions!

The scale / tuning thing could be extended to external midi instruments for example with some code from the Mutabor project - a very interesting program that allows to play with different user definable temperaments, as well as the ability for adaptive tuning - as I understand it it adjusts tuning according to played notes according to the defined ratio.

I second this request, I feel that this is something so simple that is not explored enough in music. And thank you elemental for the Mutabor project link.

Bitwig, any updates? Most all hosts have this now :)
