frequency based synth

Hi

sometimes I still think about tunings and related topics in music. I looked around for a synth which would allow for programming frequency based tones. This way one could build tone systems on frequencies, as scales and variable harmonic content.

Is there someone who has developed this kind of approach?

Cheers

RTcmix (and the max/msp rtcmix~ object) instruments allow
specification as pitch in several different formats (MIDI note #,
oct.pc, note-name) as well as frequency and different temperaments:

Csound (csound~) and chuck (chuck~) also have this kind of
flexibility. And with max/msp “proper” there’s always motf and ftom.
