Once upon a time I was interested in musical tuning. I even invented a
theoretical improvement on quarter-comma meantone, but lacked the skill
to try it out.
Later I found that I have a tin ear for that sort of thing. Can't even
tune a guitar by ear, because the differences in color between strings
drown out the differences in pitch.
So I assume "good" audio would be wasted on me.
