It's ironic that only synthesizers have ever actually been tuned to equal temperament. We have enough computational power available for synthesizers and samplers to actually play in tune these days but we haven't sophisticated enough music education for most musicians to understand the need for this. Instead we use signal processing to tune real instruments and singers to equal temperament.

It's a situation that would be hilarious if it weren't killing the market for music.
