More than just a MIDI effect, Entonal Studio is a plugin host that can house third-party virtual instruments in VST2, VST3 and AU formats.
Make conventionally tuned instruments microtonal and unlock new dimensions to your favourite plugins.
With over 200 presets to choose from, and intuitive scale editing with our radial graph, Entonal Studio invites newcomers to the world of non-standard tunings to experiment without getting bogged down in the technical side of things.
Of course, you can dive in deep if you want to, but you can do a huge amount with Entonal Studio with no prior knowledge of microtonality.
Add or remove new notes to your scales in a list, and type their values in cents, ratios, EDO degrees or mathematical expressions with a maximum 192 notes per octave.
Entonal also allows you to define the ratio of the ‘repeating interval’ for scales that don’t repeat at the octave, and view a tuning information table to see exact note frequencies between the -2nd and 8th octaves.
Play your scales how you want, map your scales to your keyboard and perform them in the way that suits you. Remove black notes, change root notes and pitch, or simply auto map for ease.
Entonal Studio supports MPE per-note pitchbends, letting you glide seamlessly from one scale interval to the next on your MPE controller – even if your scale intervals are uneven.
Entonal Studio houses a single oscillator synthesiser called Simple Synth, so you can make microtonal music without any third party synthesisers.
Simple Synth offers three waveforms, ADSR envelope controls and a delay unit. The oscillators are alias-free and the envelope is super snappy. There is a tone control to adjust the harmonics for each waveform.
Share your original scales with others, or import scales that others have made, using Scala or XML import and export.
Entonal is indispensable in my workflow. I produce hip-hop music for amongst others Killah Priest (Wu-Tang), featuring my proprietary tuning system, for which Entonal is ideal to use.

With the growth of MPE as an expressive communication method, Entonal opens up microtonality to a new generation of synthesizers. It’s quickly becoming my favorite tuning utility.
Entonal Studio does some kind of magic that keeps all the notes perfectly in line with my chosen tuning, When you’re down the deep end of microtonality as I am, that’s quite an amazing thing.
I've been addicted to this plugin. Now nearly all past and future instruments are open to the world of microtonal possibilities... A truly life changing tuning hub that's beautiful and fun to work with.
