Just In Tune

A Webapp that utilizes algorithmic calculations to find the simplest ratio between musical notes, allowing for an on-the-fly Just Intonation system.

It blew my mind the first time I learned that string players will adjust their tuning outside equal temperament when it sounds better. This isn't possible when playing with pianos, synths, percussion, or other instruments that can't change their tuning in real-time.

But what if it were possible? Would it sound better?

What would a synthesizer sound like if it were constantly adjusting its intonation to be more mathematically simpler or contain fewer beating?

This app is an experiment to find out. Check it out here.
