Adding to the Micro-pitch device the ability to retune each note in EDO (Equal Division of the Octave) mode. This feature would allow the use of microtonal scales with more than 12 notes and unequal octave division.
To load and save these scales, Bitwig should support .scl files with more than 12 notes.
Here’s a mockup:
Bitwig’s Micro-pitch device currently has only two modes: 12 notes (tunes 12 discrete notes) and EDO (Divides an interval into equal parts). Also, Bitwig supports .scl files only with 7 or 12 notes.
This is a logical continuation of the development of Micro-pitch. It would allow users to further explore microtonal scales, which is an area that Bitwig has promoted all along.
It is possible (if cumbersome to obtain this type of microtonal scales, but it is not possible to save scales with more than 12 notes.
We should make the following chain: a Micro-pitch device in EDO mode - a Note FX Layer - inside it a Note Filter for each octave - a Micro-pitch device in a 12-note mode also for each octave. Next, we must tune the notes in each octave separately.
There is such a product: Oddsound mts-esp. But we have to do some alchemy with modulators on each instrument separately to get this to work with Bitwig’s instruments.
It would be much easier to put a Bitwig micro-pitch device at the beginning of the chain, and the micro-tuning will automatically apply to all instruments in the instrument layer
