yeah the frets are set at 17ET.
though Fish still uses just intonation to set the oscillator tunings, so if you’re using the computer music section you can set any ratio you choose for that. the position of the switch then determines if the computer music gets added to or multiplied by the acoustic.

i'm mostly curious about the accoustic aspects of the shtar...do the silver and brass screw positions correspond to diatonic scale notes? if so, how closely do they correspond? the silver screws indicate major intervals and the brass screws neutral ones, as found in arabic music. i find that the fr...

the next step involves adding a 'meta-layer' to fishsoup, allowing you to dynamically manage presets/soups and adding higher level capabilities to the host computer side of things. note that there are 4 new opcodes introduced for shtar but which also work with shnth (melody, worm, scale, ladder). I ...

yeah peter's been working on it..i think he's pretty close to finishing up fishsoup (the new name for fish). he's got plans to expand it even further but not sure what the timing of that will be.

Is the USB cable just to reprogram and/or charge the (presumably internal) battery? Or does it need to be plugged in all the time? Also, the are the 2 input jacks for euro stuff the ones next to the knobs? there is a battery so usb is just to charge/reprogram (though i usually leave it plugged in w...

How does it compare to the original one? the biggest difference from namastitar is that rather than just having a ringmod effect, it now has full computer music (shnth). there is a 3-way switch, middle is acoustic only (it becomes a 17ET 4-string tar), up is acoustic + computer music, down is acous...

just to be clear is the shnth heart essentially the same as the current shnth? is there anyway to insert other sounds into it to access the ringmod effect? like on the shnth there is a mic/input is that hardwired to the 'tar? this is looking pretty sweet yes, shtar is powered by a shnh brain, you u...

shnth battery life seems fine to me but i usually use it with USB attached if i'm going to be playing it for more than 10-15 minutes. usually its because i like to change patches on the fly but also, if playing a show, why take a chance? you need a cable attached to take the audio to the PA anyway.....
