Forum Information

Dear users, I have decided to phase out the posting on the forums on this website and move any discussions over to this private facebook group. While the forums were great 10 years ago, they are now difficult to maintain due to constant spam. I spend most of my time just cleaning them up, rather than interacting. This, combined with finding it difficult to directly communicate with other users through several different social media platforms, I have decided to consolodate it all to one group where people can chat with me, ask questions and jibber jabber with other users on a regular basis. I will not make the forums offline as there is a wealth of content, but posting has now been disabled. Thanks to all those who have contributed over the years, and I'll see you over on the Facebook group! -Tom

Some of you may be into the tuning to A=432hz thing. If you are not one of those people, Ignore this post.
At first glance, Abletons most powerful native synth doesnt seem to allow for this tuning, but it can be done. Live's Operator is massivley under-rated. Here's how I tune it to A=432hz.
It basicly involves transposing down an octave then using the Fine tune knob to tune back up to where you started, then you can use the fine to back it off to the required amount (whould be approximatley 32 cents, or 8 hz)

Here's my method. I callibrate with my guitar tuner, which is what I use to tune all my instruments.

1-Transpose down -24st
2-Fine up +968 (which then mathematicly should give you A=432, but it doesnt quite)
3- Use instrument tuner (I use my guitar tuner) to dial in the tuning so its bang on (today it was stable at Fine +964)

repeat this process for each oscilator that generates audio waveforms.

Enjoy the feel of your re-tuned operator! SAT-NAM!

What's the difference between A 432 and A 440hz, which I thought was the industry standard for your typical orchestral tuning? I tune my guitar to Eb, so there goes my standards!

Thanks for the tuning tip though. B)
