I've been working on a project in which I'm using 16 notes within an octave range, all detuned from equaled tempered pitches in varying degrees. I am trying to recreate these pitches in Max/MSP using MIDI, but I run into the problem that when I detune one standard, equal-tempered note to create one of my 16 distinct pitches, it detunes the rest of the equal-tempered reference notes, and so I would need to compensate for that in the creation of each new note. I have considered doing different detunings on different MIDI channels, but I don't have enough channels to do that for every note.
When running Finale's music notation software, I've been able to create the pitches by creating expression objects that perform pitch-wheel alterations on the given notes, and so I know it is possible to get MIDI to play these notes, I'm just struggling with getting Max to do this.
Any helpful tips and suggestions, as well as resources for further reading and education about this process, would be very much appreciated.
