Scale Workshop is a web application for designing microtonal scales and playing them with a MIDI keyboard or an ordinary QWERTY keyboard. It was created by Sean Archibald. Since version 2 the lead programmer is Lumi Pakkanen.
One common usage of Scale Workshop is sharing a link which represents a scale together with an isomorphic keyboard mapping, for example:
When you follow that link you can instantly play the scale using that mapping.
Another common usage is exporting your scales for import into synthesizers or VST plugins.
