    How to create .Tun files for Omnisphere?

    I love middle eastern music and the sound of all of those scales, but when I try playing say a quarter tone scale in Omnisphere, it's very confusing to me to figure out what notes play what.

    I would love to create .Tun files for Omnisphere that would allow me to play sounds the way East West's Silk does

    So I would love to create a tuning for Omnisphere where I could play a maqam style tuning, in a specific key, like they show in the Silk video. Does anyone know how I would go about creating a .Tun file? I'm hope from there I could figure out how to do the rest.

    I've looked into it and it seems that the program Scala for creating .Tun files is no longer on the internet. Does anybody have this program for me to install? Thank you so much

    You can create the scales by hand using a text editor if you know the format. You need to know the math to generate your scale. If you do, it's pretty easy to build the file. I'm at work so I can't get you the details but I used the AnaMark documentation at http://www.mark-henning.de/download_e.php to build my .tun files.

    It works awesome and it's a ton of fun, definitely worth it. I whipped up a few just intonation scales for my purposes and they're completely slick.

    You can use the Scala application to create .tun files:

    Actually I did just that site the other day ... I couldn't get the app to run on my mac.

    However I did run into this website

    http://www.h-pi.com/CSEsoftware.html

    they seem to have a bunch of programs for different purposes, I've explored CSE a little bit and it seems like it could do what I'm looking for. The TPXE and ScalaVista also look promising.

    So thank you for the input, and I hope these links help some other people!
