12L 10s is a 2/1-equivalent (octave-equivalent) moment of symmetry scale containing 12 large steps and 10 small steps, with a period of 6 large steps and 5 small steps that repeats every 600.0¢, or twice every octave. 12L 10s is a grandchild scale of 2L 8s, expanding it by 12 tones. Generators that produce this scale range from 490.9¢ to 500¢, or from 100¢ to 109.1¢.

This scale is the quartertone scale of diaschismic temperament with dark generators above 100¢ (around the upper range of a diatonic semitone). This maps 5/4 (386¢) to one period (600¢) minus two dark generators.
