    Me neither, but I use Melodyne and that does! I believe it can load Scala files, but so far I've only played with manual adjustment. It's not so much autotune (though it can auto quantize) but more like audio to a piano-roll style line graph where you can redraw/drag all the lines. It even works on polyphonic sources (handy for shifting 3rds +/-10 cents), and can even break down monophonic sources into harmonics! (For example you can adjust the overtones to 12EDO)

    Wow! I'll have to check that out. Of course, I see that there is a hundred dollar (USD) version of Melodyne and an $850 (USD) version. If the $100US version works in 19-EDO, I'll have to try it out and grab a copy of Scala, which I had been thinking about getting for a long time anyway. If I need to shell out $850, though, this'll be a no-go, unless I somehow get the impression that I could make a good portion of that back somehow.

    Luna seems to respond well to the music, although she's spending 99% of the time just giving percussive squawks, but I'm amazed at her concept of rhythm. I seemed to have misplaced my camera, but last night, I really wanted to get some video of her "performing." Talking in between squawks is a bit difficult to make out without gratuitous amounts of compression, but I think this project might be a go, just for the sake of how fun it looks like it might be.

    I might try again this weekend, hopefully with an actual song picked out.

    Personal opinion time: as expected programmed drums totally killed the sound, it sounds atrocious. To be honest, the overall mix is pretty bad too. I know it's just a quick jam, but if it fails at creating a certain level of excitement for the project, then what is it for exactly? The last riffs get somewhat interesting, but the first ones are not my cup of tea. I hope you put more effort into this project so it can be interesting and worth our time listening to it! Cheers!

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll definitely give it one more go, and if it's not any better, I'll just move on.

    I think the bird pooped when it tried to execute the high pitch scream @1:20

    At one time I played with a somewhat known death metal drummer and he wanted to cut a demo with his girlfriend's mini pig and was demonstrating its different sounds, when you yank the tail it does this, when you kick it it does that, etc...fun times...well, not for the pig.
