Synth to Consider
I'm looking to buy a synth wiht these features:
Be able to assigns the keyboard to n-tone equal temperament. (e.g. micro-tuning)
Be able to reverse the pitch direction on the keys, i.e. keys to the left has higher pitch.
practicle scales, made by n intervals, where n is 1 to 6. When n is 1, it's the chromatic scale.
write down all interval sequence of Hanon's exercises. For example, the first one is: +4 +1 +2 +2 -2 -2 -1.
practicle all hannon's exercise, using interval sequence based on the first segment, increment by 1 whole step.
Memorize with instaneous knowledge, the association of: number of sharps/flats vs key name vs the location on the piano.
