Temperament and Tuning of Sunvox Modules

What is the temperament and tuning of Sunvox? Is it scaled off of A 440Hz? Or something else? And which specific temperament style is it using? Does it vary between different modules (e.g., the Generator is tuned to A440Hz with classical temperament but FM is tuned to C xxxxHz with a Rock Temperament)?

Also how is the Multisynth "Finetune" parameter calibrated? If each increment up or down equaled 1 Hz then it would vary exponentially the lower in pitch you go, so it must be percentage based. Any idea on what the formula may be for each increment? Does anyone else care for these details? haha

You're asking quite a few things by implication.

Sunvox's basic tuning does appear to be 12TET.

The weirdest module might be the Spectravoice module, because the harmonics are by series, not temperament, in that sense.

The pitch shifter can be calibrated, but by default seems to shift notes ten cents per number. I imagine the multisynth behaves similarly.
