"advertising a little more"... actually we don't more need to advertise. My posts are more or less caused by the fact that the referring VSL applications now support the dynamic tuning of Logic, (and later of Cubase, I hope so) but VSL (and you) don't tell it to the users. And you will have awared that some users like it very much after having listened to the musical example of Paul Henry Smith. I ask myself whether you have listed to it. I suppose "no", in other case yor statement would be more cagy.
"It sounds completely cold"... sorry, even the more or less modest examples of our website (they are created with VSL Opus 1, as at that time it was the only possibility to control VSL samples by Hermode Tuning) show the reverse. But I put the decision to the listeners.
May I add that now a real pipe organ is in construction, induced by some important organ professors who have listened to our system at an electronic church organ. It don't believe that these professors and the leading managers of Apple-Emagic and Steinberg are fools.
"I am also making Live Recordings" - And I made music as a member of symphonic orchestras and of chamber music ensembles. Indeed, the tuning result was not in every moment optimal, but we tried to get a near attempt. It is your personal error if you believe that only at final chords the tuning will be corrected. Well educated musicians control and adjust the tuning in every moment.
"So the humanizer of VIP simulates..." Indeed, for starting the notes a humanizer is a useful tool and even an old hat. But for changing the pitch on the basing tuning of equal temperament??? - I image, I am the leading techician of a motor car company. You visit me and say "I have a new technology for you, weighting the actual encumbrance of your motor, the air temperature, the air pressure and the position of the accelerator pedal - and my system calculates in real time the optimal ignition point." - And I would answer "Sorry, we don't need this, we calculate the ignition point by changing hazard numbers".
"Never you nor I know, what VIPro does when choose "just intonation" - As you recommend to select a just intonation table directed to D for music created in D major you possess at least a vague idea that this table will produce chords in just intonation for this key. I want to add: You are right.
But the problem that every "just intonation table" will even produce detuned chords for this specific key is well known since the 14th century, since the upcoming of major and minor chords in the european music. I add the tuning values for such a just intonation tuning table. I name it for "C", you can transpose it to other keys. The values name the deviation in Cents to equal temperament:
C=0, C#=-8, D=4, Eb=16, E=-14, F=-2, F#=-10, G=2, G#=-28, A=-16, B(Bb)=18, H(B)=-12
The values for the "white keys" will be in every case in consistency with the VIPro values, the others may differ as one can substitute C# by Db and so on by different tuning values. In case, the "A" will be set to "0", all values will be set 16 Cents higher. The fifth D-A comprises only 680 Cents instead of the 700 Cents of equal temperament or 702 Cents of just intonation. Therefore and even by the hard deviations to equal temperament such tuning tables are problematic and you should'nt recommend the use of such tables as long as there exist better tuning means.
BTW: For Logic users working with VIPro and Hermode Tuning: Be sure that the internal tuning tabel of VIPro will be set to "equal temperament". In other case the calculated tuning values will be added to the internal tuning table and this will cause tuning nonsense. It would be helpful if VIPro at the incoming external tuning values the internal tuning table would reset to equal temperament, butactually one has to live with this complication.
"Your system can be compared with the function Quantize". - Sorry, you compare fixed tuning with "Humanize" and the living correction of Hermode Tuning with "Quantize" ??? - this is a nice converse of the reality. I don't know whether musicians can follow this statement.
Frankly, I am astonished whether you hate Hermode Tuning and I would be happy if you would take the oppurtinity to listen to actual demos, especially to this of P.H. Smith and - maybe - to our own demos. Substantiated criticism always will be welcome.
