Hannon Exercise by Intervals

The Virtuoso Pianist In 60 Exercises.

№ 1: 4 1 2 2 -2 -2 -1.
№ 20: 4 5 3 -3 -2 2 -4

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.

To do:

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.
