12L 3s is a 2/1-equivalent (octave-equivalent) moment of symmetry scale containing 12 large steps and 3 small steps, with a period of 4 large steps and 1 small step that repeats every 400.0¢, or 3 times every octave. 12L 3s is a grandchild scale of 3L 6s, expanding it by 6 tones. Generators that produce this scale range from 80¢ to 100¢, or from 300¢ to 320¢. Scales of the true MOS form, where every period is the same, are proper because there is only one small step per period. Having three periods of 4L 1s, it may be more specifically referred to as the Ternary mode of Augene[15].
