I made a very basic synth to explore equal division by ratio tuning a little more easily. The name comes from the fact that it can play any tuning of the form "x equal divisions of ratio a is to b". It's basically a patch with a sine / pulse / triangle wave, with a MIDI input.
The frequency of the wave is determined by the settings that the user puts in (reference frequency, ratio numerator, ratio denominator and equal division). The synth also contains an amplitude envelope.
The video example shows the synth playing a group of fifths, first with a scale based on perfect fourths and then using a scale based on perfect fifths. Very much inspired by nitro2k01's work here. Thanks Didrik!
