" A new Tuning Scale feature and editor allows easy exploration of alternate scales and tunings. Microtonal, just intonation, quarter-tone, world music scales and more make the Slim Phatty an international traveler. "

Amos on this feature:

"OS 3.0 will be unified across all Phatty synths, so they will all get the same basic features including the new tuning scales option.
A scale editor for Mac and PC is in the works, so users will be able to define their own custom scales and tunings. Right now this is limited to defining 12 custom intervals and setting the root note, so you can't do anything really esoteric like 19-TET or Harry Partch tunings, but you can do a lot of the alternative scales people use more commonly (pythagorean and meantone type scales, anything based on 12 tones/octave)."

I checked out the Moog Music forum for more info. Unless I misread something, it will be more difficult for them to implement microtonal scales in a similar manner on the Voyager.

I'm tempted to pick up a Slim Phatty just for analog synth microtonal scale jamming/writing. It should be easily controllable enough from the Voyager via MIDI or even the CV inputs. Apparently, the latest Phatty OS will also work with keyboard Phatty units.

Fun microtonal jam video, with flavors from the Middle East, India, Africa, etc.
