Re: FR-18 tuning

In my description of what the Italians do.. it is at best arbitrary and no two companies agree.
It is best not to ask for a tuning by name.. but by
cents or, beats per second or tune it like
Pierre Dutron or something like that.

And the cents are at the middle of the keyboard.

And there are other names such as
Semi Swing
Demi Swing

and so on.

Re: FR-18 tuning

Those descriptions can't be by the number designation because
They are wrong !!!

Re: FR-18 tuning

Weird. Well, the marketing people probably got a hold of it and decided it needed to be more colorful or imaginative, even though the names have little correlation to anything real.
