Anamark tuning file format
'AnaMark tuning file format' is a file format that contains microtonal tuning data. This file format can be used with various synthesizers. The files are commonly referred to as "tun files."
The file extension is *.tun. There is a variant that contains multiple scales within a single file and uses the extension *.msf.
This file format supports full keyboard microtuning. This means that any MIDI note can be assigned any arbitrary frequency, thereby allowing the musician absolute choice over what microtonal tuning they can use.
