About the Files:

The files are mono 56 kbps mp3 format, 1 minute in length. Each group is tagged as a separate "album" using ID3v1/ID3v2 mp3 tags and comes in its own folder for easy use in a PC music library. Each group also comes with an m3u playlist file for easy playing, although I find just calling up the "albums" in the music library of my favorite music player the best way to use them.

These are perfect for copying to a laptop or portable mp3 player and taking with you when you have a gig. You can choose the ones you need by folder, key, temperament, make your own scales, etc.

Note: the included m3u playlist files use relative file locations and therefore may not be compatible with some music players.

Equal temperament tones were created on a Yamaha keyboard using the purest tone possible. Just intonation tones were created using the amazing Scala program created by Manuel Op de Coul.
