faunatone, a new microtonal midi ~tracker
BotB Academy Bulletins
there are still a lot of items on my todo list and there will be bugs but the basic feature set is complete enough that i think other people will find the software useful; i've used it for my past few OHB entries and a few other small pieces.

microtonality is kind of the selling point here but if you don't care about that then you can use it just as well for 12edo, and if you don't care about microtonality or midi you can download it and stare at the UI in silence.

i've been looking for a way to make midis in something with tracker interface that i could click with for a long time. tried more options than you might imagine. none of them really did quite what i want (ftm->mid converting was the closest, but even that, you're not hearing what you get because it's a converter of a non-midi thing)

this functions 100% exactly how i want from everything i've tested so far. even if this didn't have the cool bonus of it doing microtonality conveniently---i have to say: this is my favorite tool for making midis using a tracker interface that i've ever seen, and i have tried a lot of things. this isn't just my favorite tool for microtonality in midi, this is just straight up my favorite tool for making midis in a tracker, even if i were to only use it to make 12edo stuff.

thank you so SO much for making this exist and i expect to use it quite often from now on

I'll definitely give this a try when I get the chance to do so! I've yet to actually make anything MIDI related, and part of that is because all the software I've tried didn't suit my needs, so this could definitely help me getting started with that

now we need microtonal battle roads here for testing! ;) ( allgear strictly to .faun format (what about botbrs creating demo songs? ;) ) and having mp3 only rendered , or midi )

Hope midi comes up in the next winter chip so I can give this a bash. Had been hoping to try something microtonal ever since binging on Brendan Byrnes a while back

@Savestate i think it is only possible when we have a github account, i closed mine one as soon as i heard micosoft bought github... :( ( before, i made a backup to gitlab, bitbucket and notabug of everything i had there, and deleted everything at github - later i heard that a lot of people also did that then )

new minor version v0.2.0 @ https://github.com/jangler/faunatone/releases

probably another one sometime in the next month. also check for new diminished versions because those might be frequent for now

the github issue tracker is the best place for bug reports & feature requests but i don't mind taking ones via discord or whatever. i don't want to discourage anyone from giving feedback
