<< I have yet to find a synthesizer that makes it easy.

although no longer being made ( for some years now ! ) and hideously
expensive ( well, i didn`t need the house, car, wife and kids anyway...... ),
motorola made and distributed a machine specifically designed to do
microtonal music called a "scalatron". i used to have a demo tape around here
somewhere........ kind of a blend of synth and organ technologies with a
secor generalized keyboard and the ability to be set up to do just about any
microtonal or just scale. it was an awesome looking instrument!!!!!
