Just intonation vs Equal temperament

Post by naos » Wed Sep 16, 2020 3:20 am

If you recorded a part in Just Intonation would you ever try to mix it with other elements that are in Equal temperament?
Is it even possible? Personally I'd just try to use the same fondamental note for everything and see what happens but I'm not sure...

Yeah, if you wanted it to sound weird and "disharmonious" ;-)
Maybe mixing in same frequencies would be cool (fundamental notes), or notes/frequencies which are not too close to each other, unless that clashing sound is what you're going for.

It is possible, but a huge hassle. I don't know the technicalities, Adam Neely did quite a few videos on how to do it more practically.

I try to tune everything nowadays before I start jamming though. It makes things way, way easier
