Write SP XXYY by playing note while holding pitch shift bar.

Basic idea in image, positioning up for debate. Simplest thing I can think of to make microtonal stuff convenient.

Would benefit from different quantization options, at least, similar to time grid lines. Better yet, manually-set tone snaps might show up on the bar (as mocked up), after being set in a separate window, similar to the Sampler's envelopes.

A lot of the ease of setting up tone maps and the like is fixed by something called Scala, a program that lets you define custom microtonal scales. The VST plugin called ZynAddSubFX can load Scala files (.scl extension) in order to tune the synth however you desire. If SunVox loaded up scl files, everything would be simple.

Scala:

Note: Don't confuse this with the Scala programming language. They are 2 different things.

you mean like the multisynth? that's what it is for... making huge microtonal pitch quantizers to whatever scale you need. once you set up a "tone map" or a pitch quantizer, you would simply save it as a .sunsynth.
