This paper describes a software system for producing just-intonation performances of scores notated in conventional twelve-tone equal temperament. The system is composed of a number of 'performers,' made of objects, which monitor each other's current pitch and frequency status as well as the more global harmonic context and tune to one another like an ensemble of strings or voices would. The system is written in Common Lisp and CLOS and is now running on the NeXT.
