Alternate Tuning .txt file best format?

0 votes

In creating alternate Tunings I encountered an issue:

I'm using the "From Text File" function of the Design Alternate Tunings Tool.

In a .txt file I compile a list of key numbers (from 0 to 127) followed by their hz value (here is a .txt example)

When I load the .txt file into the "Read a Scale from a Text File" page the resulting scale has "0 hz" as the first step (key number "0") instead of the intended hz value present in the .txt file.

All other values are correct and where they are supposed to be

Is there something I'm doing wrong in the formatting of the text file?

Your file format is good -- the Tool was just misinterpreting the last line of your file and overwriting the entry for key number zero.

We've fixed the tool and uploaded it to the server. You can download the updated Tool by choosing Check for Software Updates from the Help menu in Kyma.

Thanks for pointing this out!
