Reposting here as it's U-He related!

Recently discovered just intonation, using a .tun file loaded into U-He Diva. Sounds amazing, but I'm not sure yet how to use it! The .tun file I found for Just Intonation seems to be based around C - is there any way I could use this in a different key? Sounds like when I 'transpose' first in Diva it's doing that in such a way that the microtonal tuning transposes too, in which case all set.

Any tips on this welcome! :help:

The only way is to write a transposed .tun file. This is a problem with the u-he synths exept for the new Repros where instead of MIDI transposition they do actual pitch transposition. I have no idea what is the purpose of this since we can have MIDI transposition in the DAW. In the synth we need pitch transposition.

Just had another play with this... seems like with "ji_12" selected: If I just play everything in 'C' into Diva, and use Diva's transpose in the 'Tuning' section to get it in the right key, everything works pretty well! Or am I missing something?
