To temper a tuning means to redefine where the notes are in relation to each other on the musical scale. The most common temperament is the Equal Temperament (EQU), which places all notes at equal intervals from each other. This means that each of the notes are evenly spaced and are all exactly 100 cents apart. However, this is only true of certain instruments, with guitars and pianos being the most common examples. Other temperaments place the notes at unequal distances from each other to suit a particular instrument or to attain different tonal colors.
StroboSoft™ allows users to view offset settings for many known and several lesser known temperaments in the TEMP screen located inside the SET-UP page.
Users can modify the ROOT NOTE and ANCHOR note and have the capability to save these settings. These settings will be recalled when StroboSoft™ is powered on. New temperaments cannot be designed or existing temperaments cannot be modified.
Users can modify the ROOT NOTE and ANCHOR note with the ability to save their settings under a custom name. In addition, new temperaments can be created from scratch for the advanced user.
