I have a Casio Celviano with 7 temperaments. I find that most western
'classical' music (Bach and Beethoven) usually sound better in Werckmeister
or Kirnberger than Equal. And nonwestern music usually sounds much better
with Just (major or minor)

I am interested in carrying the experiments from the 7 fixed temperaments
of the Casio to the theorerically unlimited possibilities of a computer.
But Ive been stuck because:
- I dont know what software to use
- I am completely novice in music theory

Maybe I should try pure data??
