Mutabor allows for dynamic tuning of any MIDI driven music instrument. It uses pitchbend messages to retune midi tones and distributes the tones across MIDI channels so that the tones can be tuned independently.
The retuning is done according to a tuning logic, which can be written relatively freely in a powerful description language. The language is optimized to be easy to learn and understandable by musicians.
A generic MIDI routing system allows to use very different setups.
The different versions support different OS and are availlable under different licenses.
