Steve,

If you can do it, it´s worth to tune the 88 keys of the piano by following the cents data given by the attached file. That is the way of studying and attacking the beating effect.

I understand that you have done the tuning by software and at the same time you ask information to do it in Kontakt, I am confused.
I've done it in Kontakt with 8 channels each tuned to an octave from C-B. What I don't know how to do is to do this with 1 channel rather than 8.
I can also only do it to the nearest cent. I have some experience of piano tuning and it's not possible to tune much more accurately than that and at least with Kontakt I don't have to worry about individual strings!

Why? I could just as well say that the zeta maximum near to 12, which is 12.0232, gives the one true and correct 1197.68 cent octave. __._,_._

I'm trying really hard...! I'm not hearing anything with any more logic than just declaring that 2/1 + 9/8 is the true octave and then using that as an assumption by which to judge everything else.
