Intervalon 2D-Interval Explorer

Nature breezes What,     Row row row a boat,
vibrating in rings and arches;   Gently down the stream,
Get on a boat of a rainbow;   Merrily merrily merrily merrily,
Life is but dream.

Intervalon is a software musical instrument that works on a Windows PC/tablet.
I'll explain very briefly those basic ideas which this software meticulously follows.  (You can skip it and jump to the download section. You can simply enjoy the instrument, hopefully.)

Intervalon is subtitled 2D-Interval Explorer. Yes, try consider, please:
Musical intervals, a second, third, fifth, octave, and so on, are most easy when they are thought of as Two-Dimensional, relations between getting more focused.
I say this because, traditionally intervals have been understood as 2D-like things, D# and Eb flatly discrete, but today too many people think just otherwise.

Musical intervals have 2D-ness in them.

Do not restrict number of note-keys in an octave to 12 (or any number).

Tune (relative) pitch heights of note-keys by relying on Intervals' 2D-ness.

Use tunings that are most 2D-ish.

Assign 2D-Intervals between Harmonic-series tones.

Plot note-key points by way of 2D-Intervals and pitch heights, always reflecting them linearly.

For emphasizing, do not use strong, overshadowing accents.
