Advice for microtonal quantization and sequencing?

Hello, I’m trying to experiment with microtonality in VCV and have been using NYSTHI’s Poly Scale and Equal Division quantizers, however I find it difficult to find a precise tone that sounds pleasing while inputting notes into a sequencer such as VCV’s Seq-3. Is there a module that will basically convert the voltage coming out of the quantizer into what would be the equivalent of notes on a keyboard before going into the sequencer? I am still trying to have everything quantized to the NYSTHI modules (19 EDO, etc), but am trying to have the sequencer play as if they were being played to a piano tuned to that, not just extremely precise decimal pointed-notes as you would get from clicking and turning the knobs on the sequencer. I feel like I have seen something like this in a tutorial video before but am blanking on what module that would be. Any help would be much appreciated!

Have you tried any of the Impromptu Modular Phrase Sequencers?

So just run it through a regular quantizer and then the microtonal one. Right? :slight_smile:

Midi from keyboard > note in, note out > v/oct

For microtonal quantization is well suited VCV Scalar. You can use up to 24 notes per octave with tuning of each note and many other cool features.

second that, vcv scalar is very extensive with great functionalities :+1:t4:

Oh yeah! My favorite section is the parameters of humanization. Very helpful for enliven the composition and to give naturalness to the sound.
