Certainly, perfection in tuning
is nearly impossible.
Adaptive control algorithms can improve tuning
in virtually any process because the user no longer needs to be a tuning
expert, nor do they need to call one in.
Further, he barely addresses what effect alternative tuning
practices have on the interaction of melody and harmony, which is at the heart of higher-level musicianship.
The sources from this period use the "new" d-minor tuning
as well as the transitional tunings
developed by the French lutenists, although the pieces in the "old" tuning
were still in circulation.
is achieved by perturbing the field distribution surrounding the DR through the movement of metallic or dielectric objects (either manually or electrically) by using, for example, a step motor.
