Eagle Blues (test song in Eagle 53 tuning. I think)


This is my first attempt at making music using an MTS scale file that I made using Scala from an existing table of cents. (for John O’Sullivan’s Eagle 53 tuning).

Scale file is inserted into my Microtonal Poly Worms synth, for the bass and the guitar/piano sound.

The drums are 12edo.

If this works I’ll make more from other people’s custom scales and add them all to the next release of the synth.

SynthEdit project file for “LuckyWorm” VST by BipTunia synths.

It took me two weeks of a few hours a day to make my first two VST synths with SynthEdit. They’re not be best synths ever, but not the worst, and they’re fun. Plus they have some cool sounds.

I’ve posted the SynthEdit project file for my VST mono synth, LuckyWorm above. Download it, unzip it, open it in SynthEdit.

You are free to download it, examine it, output it and expand on it. Don’t just slap a new name and logo on it, but if you do make substantial contributions to it, feel free to use it for the basis of your first synth, if you credit me in your ReadMe file and anywhere you post list it for download online. And it would also be cool if you use the same license I used, the BipCot NoGov License.

You set the ID when you output VST from SynthEdit.

Notice I’ve set the name to “NotLuckyWorm” and put in a bunk ID of “zzzz.” DO make sure you change the VST ID when you output it. Two VSTs having the same ID can cause conflicts in some DAW. I think Steinberg might not have thought it through how popular VSTs would be when they made the IDs only 4 characters long.

We recommend printing the diploma on card stock paper. This (white) or this (cream) work well.

Here is a nice diploma frame for 15 dollars. Here’s a nicer one for 40 dollars.

If either of those are too steep, here are cheap magnets similar to the ones shown in the above photo holding the diploma on a refrigerator. (like the top magnets. The bunny magnets aren’t sold on Amazon anymore at the moment.)

If you forget to replace “Your Name” with your actual name, you don’t pass the program. lol.

Also, put in the proper day, month and year in place of those lines.
