Xen-Arts is pleased to announce the publication of an article on the MIDI Association site at MIDI.org:

Microtuning and Alternative Intonation Systems

Microtuning virtual and electronic hardware instruments: An overview of formats and methods for using alternative intonation systems

The article covers, encapsulates and extrapolates on topics featured in the Xen-Articles, Microtuning Virtual Instruments series on this site, but features a more in depth examination and PSA about the implementation of the Scala SCL and linear KBM format in software virtual instruments, in an effort to draw attention to why it’s crucial to have the KBM part of the specification available for serious microtonal and xenharmonic music composition.

Please feel free to share your impressions in the comments below, or otherwise on the MIDI Association article page. It would be great to hear from you.
