They allow me to easily explore microtonal Middle Eastern scales,
adding spice to my music.
The SOLO + Microtoner bundle was a no-brainer for me. In addition to the incredible sounds of SOLO, I can instantly re-tune the rest of my studio to match whatever scale I’m using on SOLO. Microtoner works with hardware MIDI synths and samplers as easily as it does with software plug-ins.
I’ve wished for something like this for years, so having SOLO + Microtoner is a dream come true.
Also, just for the record, there are many, many scales available in the software, it isn’t just “Arab” scales 😉
I absolutely love the fact that this software makes it so easy to play Arab scales. But even beyond that, the quality of the sample libraries is outstanding, so even if you stick with Western temperament, the sounds are so great that they’re perfectly usable for all of your professional applications.
Great Deal, SOLO has some interesting sounds in it and MicroToner has been crazy to play with the different scales
