Harry Partch 43-tone scale

Pure Data Patch

Curious about using microtonal scales in Pure Data, I selected one of the most challenging and complex microtonal scales: Harry Partch's 43-tone scale. 

Note the below video is a proof-of-concept rather than an artistic statement. It's a way to get an overall feel for the scale – it's essentially just a random barrage of notes. 

The next step for me it to make heads or tails out of how to sensibly use the scale. Although, I have to admit that hearing it played randomly is aesthetically pleasing in it's own right.
