Re: tuning

You could create a Performance, split it into three ranges. 

Load any voice.  Adjust the tuning of that voice to be what you want that “ONE KEY” to be.  Save that voice to a user location.

Assume key 40 is the one you want to tune.

Create a peformance.

Set note range 1 of PART 1, which is keys 1 - 39.  Assign the “Normal” voice to that range.
Set note range 2 of PART 2, which is key 40.  Assign the “USER” voice to that range.
Set note range 3 of PART 3, which is keys 41-88 (or whatever the number of the highest key.) Assign the “Normal” voice to that range as well.

That ought to do it.

Re: tuning

Thanks Tony for responding.

The issue with using a performance is that I can’t use it for recording songs/patterns. I can see in the edit menu that I can choose a pre-defined tuning but I’m wondering if I have the flexibility to define my own, note by note at the voice level.

I appreciate the help.

Re: tuning

Nope… Not that I know if…

If you’re playing CHORDS, you’re kinda out of luck.

If you’re playing single notes, you could go back into the MIDI data and adjust tuning using Pitch Bend data…

I’m not sure I follow you. Why not (in “Song Mode” at least) put each note of the chord on a separate track and apply a different amount of pitch bend at that particular point to each track?

What tuning do you want to “define”?

Re: tuning

I need to play quarter-tone scales. in some cases, I need to bring do an E by a quarter-tone, in other cases a B etc…

I’m really surprised Motif does let you do this through one of the menu options. Even my old Roland G-600 lets you do that to any note you wish.

Re: tuning

The Motif can do weird tunings. I am looking at the classic’s manual and it details how to do this in voice mode on P131 - if you have an ES or XS I would still think this is doable, you’ll just need to look through the manual on voice mode until you find what you need - common edit parameters, micro tuning.

Hope this helps

Re: tuning

Um..."micro-tuning" on the Motif is “pre-defined”. The thread starter has already remarked that he doesn’t want a “pre-defined” tuning. That pretty much leaves pitch-bend. 

By the way, “weird” is not the appropriate adjective with which to describe all tunings other than dodecatonic equal temperament. Dodecatonic equal temperament has always been proffered as a compromise, never as an ideal.
