Message: 8900 - Contents - Hide Contents Date: Thu, 01 Jan 2004 22:14:54 Subject: Ragmonza 225/224 planar From: Gene Ward Smith When tuning 225/224-planar (which used to be called both Byzantine and Pauline until people objected) there is no payoff in not having minor thirds pure (the approximation to 7 involving 3 and 5 only in their product of 15) and optimizing makes it pure. If we assume pure 6/5s (and octaves, of course) we get a one-parameter family of 225/224-planar temperaments, rather as if it were a linear temperament. If s is the amount by which the thirds and fifths are flat, we have q3 = 3/s q5 = 5/s q7 = 225/(32 s^4) for the size of the "3", "5", and "7". If s = 32805/32768 is exactly a schisma, we get a 5-limit version of 225/224-planar r3 = 32768/10935 r5 = 32768/6561 r7 = |55 -30 2> r7 is shy of 7 by a comma which is ragisma/monzisma, which I guess we may call the ragmonza of |-55 30 2 1>. Another plausible 225/224 planar tuning sets the 7s to be pure, which makes s = (225/224)^(1/4), a schisma of 1.928 versus one of 1.954. We may also want to make 7/5 and 7/6 pure, which means s = (225/224)^(1/3) and we flatten thirds and fifths by 2.571 cents.

For any 7-limit scale, can't we produce a 9-limit tuning simply by using a multiplier of 3 on the 3:2 error before optimizing? And when you give, for example, 11-limit Marvelous Class, are you counting the 3:2 error once or thrice? -Carl

The syntonic comma = 81/80 (21.506 cents) has a length of log(81*80) = 4*log(2) + 4*log(3) + log(5) in the Tenney lattice, as it comprises 4 rungs along the 2-axis, 4 rungs along the 3-axis, and 1 rung along the 5-axis. If the anomaly is distributed uniformly and efficiently along this length, the rungs along the 2-axis and 5-axis will be tempered wide, and the rung along the 3-axis will be tempered narrow. So the 2-axis rungs should be tempered wide by log(2)/log(81*80) of the syntonic comma, or 1.6985 cents -- so each rung represents 1201.6985 cents. The 3-axis rungs should be tempered narrow by log (3)/log(81*80) of the syntonic comma, or 2.6921 cents -- so each rung represents 1899.2629 cents. The 5-axis rungs should be tempered wide by log(5)/log(81*80) of the syntonic comma, or 3.9438 cents -- so each rung represents 2790.2575 cents. Check that the syntonic comma vanishes: 4*1899.2629 - 4*1201.6985 - 2790.2575 = 0 What would you call this kind of meantone? The 3:2 is flattened by about 10/49-comma, while the octave is widened by about 3/38-comma. Looks like this approach optimizes according to a weighted minimax over the prime intervals. Comments?

From: Paul Erlich In order to quantify straightness, I tried to come up with a formula that would give the 'area' of a bivector regardless of which basis vectors are chosen to define it. For example, 12-tone periodicity blocks obviously all have the same 'area' regardless of whether they're defined using {81:80, 125:128}, {81:80, 648:625}, or what have you. But when dealing with, say, 7-limit linear temperaments, you can't simply quantify the area of the vanishing bivector using a number of notes. I tried heron's formula using the Tenney lengths of various equivalent dependent triples to determine the area (really half the area) of the bivector, and it's almost independent of which triple I use, but not quite. Any suggestions?
