I am not interested in working with the Western scale. I am interested in completely re-programming the keyboard to another tuning. Can you confirm to me its parameters, i.e. how low and how high it can go?
So what you are saying is if I partition my hard drive and run Windows XP on one partition on my Mac, it will
work on a Macintosh?
The Lambdoma Keyboard is in the form of an 8 by 8 grid in a single quadrant model. It is diamond shaped and has 64 keys in each one of the four quadrants. I use the term matrix instead of grid. The entire keyboard is made up of 256 keys. The keys are based upon ratios alone. When you enter a frequency in the 1/1 position it creates a field of harmonic frequencies all attuned to its keynote that you chose.
The Lambdoma Keyboard is not a tuned to a Western scale. The Keyboard may go as low as 16Hz and as high as 20,000Hz.
What retuning do you wish to have? The Lambdoma Keyboard is tuned to something like a Saraswati scale or harmonic minor. You can put any frequency into the generating 1/1. So it has infinite possibilities.
Go to Fractal Tune Smithy on the internet and find FTS_lambdoma and you will be able to play and hear the harmonics. That is the software that I use for the Lambdoma Keyboard. That way you will be able to hear the quality of the sounds.
If you partition your hard drive to Windows '98.ME or XP that program will work on your Mac. I have not been able to have my Keyboard run yet on my MacPro, but you will at least be able to work interactively with the software FTS program.
