Mon, 3 Oct 2005 18:44:03 -0500
Hi -- I dont have MCL anymore so if I can't build 2.3.4 in openmcl im
not sure if ill be able to debug it.
FWIW it does work in 2.7.0:
? (new tuning :name 'meantone :octaves '(-1 10)
:cents '((0 c) (86 cs) (192 d) (312 ds) (384 e) (504 f)(578 fs)
(696 g) (771 gs) (888 a) (1008 as) (1082 b)
? (hertz 'a4 :in #&meantone)
