Hey all! The Virus synths have finally become available in New Zealand and so I'm starting to look very seriously into buying a Ti2 Desktop for my first hardware synth! I've been interested in buying one for quite some time but I'm hung up on one little point. I'm one of those fellows who produce with slight Hz offsets, usually A=432Hz and A=415Hz. I have a few reasons for this, I have a bit of a thing for classical/baroque music/instruments and their tunings so I like to produce in those sorts of tunings, and generally my ears prefer the slightly lower tuning, finding it a bit more mellow. I know there's a lot of debate about doing this in an esoteric context but I'd rather avoid that side of things and keep this query technically orientated.
So, I know the Virus Ti2 doesn't have this functionality built in. The soft synths I use allow me to use .tun files to adjust the tuning exactly to my needs, and I know I can use cents microtuning to approximate the pitch shift but it's not exact, and I can hear the slight dissonance no matter how close I get. Does anybody have any suggestions for working around this? I'm not sure if I can microtune MIDI note data before it goes into the synth via say, Max4Live but I'm willing to explore that possibility as a workaround. Ideally though I'd love to be able to do the microtuning inside the synth itself as a global parameter.
Representatives of Access themselves, what are your opinions on the possibility of this as a feature update?
Looking forward to hearing some thoughts!
